Sending Alerts on Red Green

I want to spend less time at the computer screen In order to do this I need to utilise the alert system.  I have got it up and running to email/txt me when it hits a particular price which is great.  However I cannot get the high vol and red/green alerts to trigger.  I have checked them on the menu option and an alert is fired but no email is sent.  Is there anything else I need to do ?

You have already achieved the working status of the alerts as intended. The software will only alert on SCREEN for a red or green. It will  not send SMS for this. The reason being is because the red green settings need monitoring and without this you could end up with PAT sending SMS Alerts every few mins depending upon the time frame chosen.
