The Trade Alert Widget provides users with a convenient way to be notified whenever an order has been booked. The widget gives the user the ability to enable/disable these alerts at any time. The alerts themselves pop-up in the center of the trader’s screen with relevant info such as the filled quantity, delta and total delta. Users can also cancel partial fills right from the alert. As part of the first release, alerts for manual trades and quotes are ignored.
