Stock Watch Help
 


 


Adding notes to your Stockwatch - click here


The Stockwatch page is our most actively used and watched page and lets you monitor a number of stocks in real time. It gives you access to pricing information about your chosen stocks.

For those registered users who have limited access to the Stockwatch page will notice that the screen will disconnect from our servers and prices will not update. There are two solutions to this – one is to press your refresh button to log back in or better still upgrade your account to one of our services that gives you unlimited access.

When you first key onto the Stockwatch page, or you have no lists set up the following display will appear:



In the Watchlist Name section of the page, you add the name you wish to call this particular Watchlist. This will be the title of your Watchlist.

You will then need to enter in the Epic codes of the companies you wish to add to your Watchlist. These can be added in the Epic Codes text box, and must either be separated by a comma or by tabbing down to the next line, as shown below:



Once you have added all of the stocks that you wish to monitor, then click the continue button at the bottom of the page. This will then display your chosen Watchlist in the following format:



You can now add or remove any entry you want by using the add/remove function at the bottom of the page.

If you have more than one Watchlist then you can switch between them by using the dropdown box at the bottom of the page entitled Watch List. This will then display all of the Watchlists you have saved for you to choose between them.

Should you wish to customise your Watchlist then you can use the following function which can be found on the initial Stockwatch page as described above or by clicking on:

Edit This Watchlist Or New Watchlist

This will give you a display as follows:



You can then Hide or Show specific columns by highlighting them and by using the arrows to move to the appropriate columns (either Hidden Columns or Shown Columns), and also to arrange the order of the columns displayed on your Stockwatch page.



You will see above that to the left of the display are 4 different symbols. These are as follows:
- By clicking on this button you go directly to the charts page. The charts page will automatically default to the stock you were previously viewing on the quotes page (in this example it would be VOD)
- By clicking on this button you go directly to the Trades page. Again the trades page will automatically default to the stock you were previously viewing on the Quotes page (in this example it would be VOD)
- By clicking on this button you go directly to the News page. Again the News page will automatically default to the stock you were previously viewing on the Quotes page (in this example it would be VOD)
- This icon will take you to level 2 data for this company (If your subscription allows)
- This arrow indicates the movement of the stock and there are 3 different arrows:
- An upward movement in the equities price
- No Movement in the equities price
- A downward movement in the equities price
You can adjust the width of the columns in the display shown above. This is done by right clicking and dragging the edge of a column to the required width.

You can also sort the order of the columns by clicking on the tab at the top. This will sort the stocks into either ascending or descending order, with regard to that column. If you click on the name column it will order your stocks in either ascending or descending alphabetical order.

Below is a list of the Headers you will find on the Stockwatch page and their definitions:

Note feature for Stockwatch


MoneyAM is pleased to announce that it has now added a new Notes feature to the Stockwatch service.

This new feature allows you to add up to 3 Notes columns next to the stocks you have in each of your watchlists. You can add anything you want, from a simple reminder to a note on what price you would like to buy or sell at.

You will automatically have 1 note column added to the existing watchlists you have and to any subsequent new watchlist you create.

To use the Notes feature, simple go to Stockwatch, and click on edit watchlist (if this is your first time using Stockwatch, you will automatically be taken to an edit page).

Under the .Column Display and Order. heading, you will see in the .Hidden Columns. section Note 2 and Note 3, and in the .Shown Column. Section Note 1.

To add Note 2 and/or Note 3 to your watchlist, simply click on it and then press the single arrow pointing to the right. To remove a note column from your watchlists simply do the opposite.

To start using the Note service, simply click on the Add Note text in your watchlist next to the stock you want to edit (you can see in the screen shot that we have already added a note called .test note. at the top of the list).

This will bring up a text box (shown below) in which you can add a title (which will be displayed in the watchlist), and the full note (which will be displayed when you access the note from the watchlist).

Once you have added the note, simply click Save Note . the note will now show in the watchlist.

To access it click on the note itself, and this will bring up the full text you entered, which you can then delete, amend or leave it as it was.

We are sure you will find this new tool a great help, allowing you to add further information to your Watchlists as and when you need to.
