Topic: Linking Sectors, Indexes and a List of Custom Symbols

Thanks for your input, I have a workaround for now but this would be a fairly easy feature to add in the future.

My workaround is to use the drill down view for sector and industry only. I can then add columns (sector and industry) to my watchlist so that I can manually sort them. Less slick but it works.

The original drill down list seems to do this but (and it’s a big but) it works with all symbols. What I would like is the drill down to return only symbols from my custom watchlist.

 

ps. Coffee makes me sleepy. Decafe ftw

... it appears that both sector and industry are already linked, it would just be the case of somehow linking my custom list of over 400 symbols with the industry list.

Hi, 

I've setup a custom view which consists of one chart and three watchlists (sector, industry and a custom list of symbols). I would like to be able to run conditions on the lists so that they are all connected, enabling me to filter by Sector then industy.

For example:

Say I select the Energy sector from my sector watchlist, i would then want the industries watchlist to display industries related to the energy sector. Drilling down even further, I might then decide to trade in the oil and gas industry, so would like my custom watchlist to show symbols that are available from the oil industy.

Is this possible or am i asking for a magic unicorn?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,

Andrew
