xsl date comparison
You don't say but I assume that you have the somewhat confusing mm/dd/yyy order.

If instead you used the ISO format 1999-04-15 then you could just use
xsl:sort and lexicographic sorting, or translate(@Trade_Date,'/','') and
numeric sorting. Also you'd be able to declare that attribute as a date
with W3C XML schema, should you ever wish to.

As is you want to compare the resuts of 
(ie numbers/strings of the form 19990405)
