Reuters - Excel

  1. Greetings All,

    Can anyone point me to information on how to track stocks in MS Excel? I subscribe to Reuters data and use Metastock 8.0.

    After identifying XYZ as a stock where I want to be long anywhere above, say, 8.00 -- or determining that ABC would no longer interest me under 15.00 -- I need some way of tracking prices, other than opening and inspecting each chart. Excel's ability to highlight cells that meet specific conditions seems an easy visual solution. But how do I get the daily close from Reuters into Excel?

    In Metastock, creating an "Alert" in the Expert Advisor would be the ticket if I were looking for technical conditions, I suppose, but I'd like to monitor different price levels on a relatively large number of securities.

    I'm sure there are thousands of traders tracking stocks using similar methods, but I'm stumped where to begin. Even introductory information would be extremely helpful.
