re: "...no hyperlinks on symbols in alerts and no alert action options..."

Hi. I'm relatively new to TI also. It's funny, before reading your message I hadn't tried the links yet. Just did now. Pretty handy actually.

I just clicked on the "Linker" menu in TI main window and selected quotes and chart window via the ">>" selector. Now when I click on a stock symbol in the TI list of alerts that comes up, I get a chart for and it also appears in my quote list. Seems to work pretty good for me. One point is that you apparently need to have a window already open of the type you want to link to.

For example, Level II didn't appear as a linking option on the left side until I had opened a Level II window in Scottrade Elite. Then clicked on the "linker" menu heading in TI.

Afraid I don't know what you mean by "action alert options" though. I've had this fantasy of generating trade orders automatically from a perfectly debugged strategy setup but,of course that would be pretty tricky and scary in real life. I don't know of any software so far that allows one to translate alerts from various sources into scottrade orders. Do you? I envision perhaps writing my own program someday perhaps starting with a small seperate test (cash only) account for development purposes. As far as what "actions alert options" really are, hopefully the TI person will be around to shed a bit more light eventually...
