Logs Tab

Overview

The Logs tab shows information messages generated by several subsystems. It contains the following sub-tabs:

  • Alerts Log - shows messages generated by Alerts
  • Journal Log - contains notes entered by you. (Journal entries can also be created from scripts.)
  • News Log - shows News messages related to watched symbols. "Watched" symbols are symbols that are currently in a Watchlist or a Chart. (Not all data providers provide News.)
  • RSS Log - shows the headings of RSS feeds that you've subscribed to. (Subscribe to RSS feeds in the main Options dialog.)
  • Data Connection Log - messages generated by the data connection
  • Broker Connection Log - messages generated by the broker connection

Data / Broker Connection Log

If the data or broker connections are failing (they show up in red) then check these logs to find out what the problem is.
