Trollatunga, if I understand you correctly you want to create an index based on a certain number of stocks of your choosing. Is this correct? If so, the following should give you a start. The following is an "index" consisting of AAPL and RIMM. It is a simple average of the two stocks. If you want a more elaborate weighting you'll have to check SF's functions and indicators to see if you can accomplish that.

set{x, ind(AAPL,close)}
set{y, ind(RIMM,close)}
set{z, x plus y}
set{myindex, z divided by two}
draw myindex

Regards
Max

hi all

karemna and four it is not a whatchlist that I am looking for, maxreturn is right.

I need personal index of stocks that I chose. In my case I want to select the 5 to 10 biggest companys in one index.
I am doing this as one of the Wyckoff method, this will create my "wave chart" designed by Richard D. Wyckoff.

Thanks maxreturn I will try to build on your filter, although I would prefer it to be the primary chart.

oh and moby thanks for your effort :)

Fetcher[symlist(spy)
set{a, ind(AAPL,close)}
set{b, ind(RIMM,close)}
set{c, ind(GOOG,close)}
set{ g, a +b }
set{ h, g + c }
set{m, h / 3}
set{v, m /2}
draw v on plot close
]





Could you elaborate on the method you mention....TIA

Also, is there a better way then the "draw" method. Would like to compare to SPY...
I guess I'm looking for a way draw on plot close and normalze to SPY.

Id like to be able to substitute/test different candidates....If I substitute a 10 dollar stock for GOOG...
welll...you see what happens.....
