For example, You can use a watchlist universe and use it in several scans. Once you update your watchlist - all scans will be updated as well.

  • Pick the 'Universes' tab in the settings.
  • Click the '+' sign.
  • Enter the list name
  • Enter as many symbols as you like (space, comma, or semi-colon separated)
  • Click Save.
You can edit and delete the list using the icons next to it.

How to use a list in a scan?

  • Search for 'include symbols' filter
  • Click the filter and choose 'Manual' (enter as many symbols as you like manually) or 'Universe.'
