A quick way to create a chartlist

Sometimes you want to create a chartlist for certain indexes, sectors or industry groups. You certainly can create a Scan to do that and save the results to a chartlist. Another quick way to create these types of lists is using the Chartlist Edit function.

You can use an existing chartlist or create a new one and go to Edit. In Edit there is a button to Add Symbols. Click on that and it opens a dialog box that looks like this

If you click on the From Group tab it opens a new dialog box that looks like this

Using the dropdown arrows you can select a Group (many Indexes and Sectors available here) or Industry Group to add to your chartlist in a couple clicks.

I'm often using the Sector Summary and drilling down into a sector and industry group and wish that I could review those charts in list view from that page but you can't. Using this Add Symbols feature, you can quickly create a chartlist of many things for your review
