HI there,

I have a watchlist question.
I have created a custom colum in a filter called "alert".
I set up alerts when this price is hit and then look for a bounce off that price.

I have a custom colum in my filter called "Alert".
I currently download that data to exel.

I have been working with watch lists though and I read that there may be a way to create a custom colum in the watch list view. in the column section help it states

"Finally, If you don't like the column header for a particular measure, you can set your own column header using the { and } symbols. For example:

add column RSI(14) {myrsi} "

Is there any way to have the custom colums from the filter appear in the watchlist? or is there any way to get this data into the watchlist?

Depends on what the code for your alert is. Please post and we'll see if it can be done (probably can).

Yes you can! As long as you can see your filter in the filter section, then all you have to do is copy & paste your filter into any watchlist column. I do that all the time with my watchlists.

Here is the filter I am running:

It is used to find stocks that have gapped up 8 - 30%.

The ALERT is set at 1% above the high on the day prior to the gap. I set up alerts in my other charting program, but would like this alert to also show in the watchlist I create of stocks that have gapped.

Is thre a way to set an "ALERT" column in the watchlist?

SET{A1, HIGH 1 DAY AGO}
SET{A2, OPEN}
SET{A3, OPEN / A1}
SET{A, COUNT(A3 ABOVE 1.08,1)}
SET{B, COUNT(A3 BELOW 1.3,1)}
SET{X, A + B}
SET{ALERT, A1*1.01}
SHOW STOCKS WHERE X EQUALS 2
SHOW STOCKS WHERE ALERT IS GREATER THAN 5

add column A1
add column ALERT
sort by column 3 descending
