Sample of the Report on the Iphone screen
Note: The most common problem with the Email report is that your Spam filter may send the report to the Junk/Spam folder, if this happens you need to edit the Filter/Rules on your email client to never send emails from info@4xTrader.net to the Junk/Spam folder.
