Getting Started with Watchlists, Alerts & Follows

Watchlists can be created, edited, and shared in seconds. Different alerts can also be set for tickers you care about. You can configure alerts for the tickers present in your watchlists or you can enable alerts in My Alerts section independently of watchlists.

Using the Watchlist Manager

Select Watchlists, Alerts & Follow

The screen below is your watchlist manager:

Watchlist Page

The left side of the screen contains categories for:

  • My Alerts: All the tickers with Alerts enabled will show up in the My Alerts page. Alerts can be configured independently of watchlists. Companies you have chosen to track but may not necessarily be part of any watchlists.
  • My Watchlists: Watchlists that have been created by you. Additionally, a quick-add virtual watchlist “Followed Tickers” is automatically maintained and helps you track companies that may not necessarily be part of other fixed watchlists.
  • Shared Watchlists: Watchlists that have been created by others and shared with you
  • Sentieo Watchlists: Pre-loaded watchlists created by Sentieo to get you started

The middle of the screen shows your alert preferences.
