The watchlist is the heart of the new Bourse 7 and Market Analyser 7 trading platforms, and you can create as many watchlists as you choose. There are a number of ways that you can create watchlists and today we will look at how to do this.
On the right hand side of the Quote screen there are a number of preloaded watchlists called System Watchlists. These contain preset groups of shares such as the Top 20, Top 50 and Top 200 ASX shares. These groups will be kept up to date as these lists change over time without you having to do anything.
To create your own watchlists the first thing to do is click on Quote.
You can use any of the System Watchlists as the start of a new watchlist or you can create new lists as well. Click Clear to create a blank watchlist, or open the watchlist you want to use as the starting point for your new list.
To add a share, type the code in the search box located below the Quote tab. If you don’t know the code you can click on the N button for the Navigator, which allows you to type in the name and then find the appropriate code. Once you have the correct code click the black > next to the N to add the code into your watchlist. Keep typing in codes and click the black > adding them to the watchlist.
To delete a share from the watchlist right click on the share and click Delete from the menu that appears.
Shares will appear in the watchlist in the order that they are added to the list. To change the order click on the heading of any column and the list will be sorted by that column. Click on SecCode and the list will be sorted alphabetically; click on Last column heading and the list will be sorted by price.
Now that you have the list how you want it, remember to click Save As and give your watchlist a name. The watchlist will appear under the User Watchlist tab on the left. If you make changes to the watchlist, by adding more shares or changing the order, you can click Save so the program will keep these changes.
A further trick that can be used to create watchlists is to copy data and import it into a watchlist. You can take the results of an Analyser scan and highlight the list by clicking on the first share in the list and holding down the Shift key and then clicking on the last share in the list. Once the list is highlighted, hold down the CTRL key and push C on the keyboard. This will copy the list. Now go to the watchlist window and click Clear, then click Import. This will import the data into the watchlist. If you want to save the list click on Save As and type in a name for the list.
In a similar way you can import a list of codes from Microsoft Excel or other parts of the platform. Highlight the list of codes you want to import, hold down CTRL key and push C. Then go back into the Bourse 7 or Market Analyser 7 platform, and in the Quote window click Import. This will bring the codes into the watchlist and you can then save that watchlist as you did before.
