eSignal Symbol Entry

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by ktmexc20, Feb 9, 2004.

  1. Is it possible copy and paste a "bulk" list
    of symbols into the quote window(s).
    Or, Is it possible to load the quote window with symbols dynamically from an outside source (ie. EXCEL)?

    Thanks for Your Help.
  2. If I'm not mistaken I used to create a simple text file and rename with a .sym extension. Then open that symbol list in a quote window.
  3. I think I got it wrong. Just save the symbol list in a text file with .txt extension. Then select the quote ooption menu and click on dynamic quote file and select browse.
  4. Bundlemaker,

    Thank You, it works. I appreciate your help.
  5. To answer your last question from your original message, I frequently copy and paste a list of symbols from Excel into a quote window. Usually they are scan files that I have downloaded into Excel and then after some more filtering I copy and paste the remaining symbols into eSignal.
