Hi,

Ive searched the boards but haven't found the answer - maybe cant be done.

I have a filter that comes up with a list of say 8 stocks. Is there a command to move those 8 stocks over to a watchlist I set up without having to manually add them?

thanks

There may be a better way to do it, but this may help;

1. Set up a new watchlist named after your filter
2. Download the results of your filter into the csv file
3. Copy the symbols from the spreadsheet
4. Open your new watchlist
5. Paste symbols into the watchlist

Again, there could be better ways of doing this, but this works for me. And I do agree with you,
this should be a one click process.

I use the Watchlist feature.

Go to Stockfetcher Home Page
Go to "Watchlists" at the top center (next to "forums")
Click "Create Watchlist"
Name your watchlist (i.e., April2019)
Type your symbols separated by commas
Click "Create"

At the beginning of your filter or ANY filters you have:
Type:
Apply watchlist (april2019)

Run your filter

My apologies.
I see you said you didn't want to type the symbols.
I'm going to leave my instructions in case they're useful to you -- or anyone else.

1. Name an empty Watchlist [or use a created Watchlist]
2. Run filter
3. Change to table view [Click button = Table]
4. Select all [Check box near column heading]
5. Click Add Checked to Watchlist [Bottom-left corner of screen]
6. Select Watchlist and Click Add button [Selects only those on the current page*] [need to advance to next page and repeat steps for each page]

* You can change the number of results shown per page, See the top-right corner of screen [Account | Settings | Results]
