    I'm not really sure, but I'm guessing maybe you have to specify the number of hits that will trigger an alert. This is from the documentation:

    Notification Settings

    One of the key differences between scans and alerts is that alerts are run automatically at a scheduled time, and notify you based on the number of securities that meet your criteria at that time.

    The Notification Controls in the Alert Criteria Panel allow you to specify when the alert is run, what number of results will trigger the alert, how you should be contacted when the alert is triggered, and what to do with an alert once it has been triggered. The following sections will cover each of these topics.
  • I think maybe the Rank by needs to be removed. I thought I read somewhere that an alert can't rank/sort.
