A great option for adding a large number of symbols to a ChartList at once is to upload the data from a spreadsheet.
You can use Excel or any program that can create CSV files. If you already have a spreadsheet created, skip to the next step.
First, go to the “Your ChartLists” section of Your Dashboard, then select “Edit” from the “View As” dropdown menu next to the ChartList you want to upload the ticker symbols to.
In the “Add Charts to List” section, click on the “Upload CSV” tab. Click the “Choose File” button, and select your CSV file from your computer. Then click the green Upload button.
Once the CSV file has been uploaded, it will show the symbols, descriptions, and comments to be added. Click “OK” to add those symbols to your ChartList.
Note: If there are any symbols in your CSV file that are not in our database, you will not be able to upload the file. In that case, open the file and remove those symbols, then try uploading again.
