                                                   Ability to open multiple watchlist windows

What do you think of this feature "Ability to open multiple watchlist windows"?
Do you think we should implement it?

Sounds well. But how to arrange the Windows?
Pulldown? One below each other? All in One? Hm......

Yes I think it is a good idea to have multiple-watchlists available as I find it time consuming to load a different watch list each time. Thanks.

You can arrange windows as you want. You can have floating windows or you can dock them to the main application form.

I would welcome this feature, please implement.

While working with watchlists I usually use them in combination with the alerts manager which allows multiple alerts. So for me there would be no urgency for this implementation.

But if I may add a related feature to the list: having the ability to access the values of a column defined in a watchlist from another watchlist, screener or alert, would be a plus for me.

=> Having the ability to access the values of a column defined in a watchlist from another watchlist, screener or alert, would be a plus for me

The value of a column is implemented using QS formula. Why don't you use the same formula in the other watchlist, screener or alert?
You can even save the formula in a file (From the formula editor) and load it in other editors.

Yes, I know, this is why I called it a "plus", because in certain situations, especially when historical and intraday timeframes are combined, this is getting complicated, I will give an example:

Let's say, I have a strategy on daily data "buy at 97% of yesterday's low", if certain other signal criteria are met. On intraday data from my broker (QS is connected to the broker), I would like to check which symbol is getting close to its entry limit, so that I might place an order for this symbol. Of course I can use the TimeFrameApply function to access historical data from intraday timeframe, I just thought it would be easier to have a daily watchlist that has "low * 0.97" in a column and then have a second intraday watchlist with real-time data from which I could have access to the column in the daily watchlist. I need two watchlists anyway (at least the daily one needs to show the symbols that meet the signal criteria), as I deal with S&P500 members, putting them all in just a single intraday watchlist would exceed the number of real-time connections my broker grants.

But don't worry, if this is too complicated to implement - no problem on my side.

Another solution would be to create a custom function that calculates "low * 0.97" using daily data and simply reference that function in your watchlist.

Is this functionality available now?

Yes, it is available. Right click on a watchlist then select "Create New Watchlist Window"
After that, you can dock a floating watchlist window on any other window by moving it while pressing on ALT.
