 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

Important Change to Email Alerts for Gold Subscribers

Beginning Monday, January 3, alerts will only be sent to Gold Subscribers when the projected volume is equal to or greater than 1.5 times the average daily volume. Alerts will continue to be sent to Platinum subscribers according to their alert preferences and filters.

This change is because Gold subscribers do not have the ability to filter their alerts and can receive an excessive volume of emails. If you do not agree with this change PLEASE LET US KNOW!
