Hi,
Is there a simple way to add multiple static watchlists to the screener for analysis?

I have many fundamental portfolios that I would like to run screens on.

I dont believe adding several watchlists to a screen works as I had hoped


Thank you

Allan

Hi Allan,

A static watchlist is just a list of symbols. You can add all symbols from these static watchlists to your screen.
Or you can add several watchlists to the symbols selection control of the screen ("Select Symbols" button)

Add the following conditions:
- Internal List -> Watchlist -> Static Watchlist -> Your first watchlist
- Union Operator
- Internal List -> Watchlist -> Static Watchlist -> Your second watchlist
- Union Operator
- Internal List -> Watchlist -> Static Watchlist -> Your third watchlist

Perfect!!

If I would like to identify which watchlist the passing stocks belonged to,how would I do that?

I know we would need to use the Addcolumn function.Just dont know how to identify watchlist"..

You can use the following function: IsInList

Example:
a = IsInList(_Watchlist, "WatchlistName");

i dont thnk the formula

a = IsInList(_Watchlist, "WatchlistName");

achieves what i am looking for.

I have several watchlists such as Low p/b, low Peg, low p/fcf...

when i run a screen of the combined watchlist, i would like to identify which watchlists the stocks are in

You have to check for each watchlist using that function. There are no other functions.

str = "";
str = str.iffstr(IsInList(_Watchlist, "Low p/b"), "Low p/b - ", "");
str = str.iffstr(IsInList(_Watchlist, "Low Peg"), "Low Peg - ", "");
AddColumn("Watchlists", str);
