Market Ticker

Use the Market Ticker to create and view a scrolling list of symbols, as well as market breadth, at the bottom of your workspace to stay on top of market changes.

  • Viewing the Market Ticker

    The Market Ticker is displayed by default and can be turned off via General Settings. When the Market Ticker is enabled, additional display options are available from the Ticker menu, located at the bottom left-hand corner of your workspace. This menu allows you to build a custom ticker list or populate the ticker with your positions or custom watch lists, and market breadth data and visuals.

    The ticker has several features for more in-depth data and making quick actions:

    • Hover on any symbol in the scrolling ticker to freeze the ticker and open the Action menu for a particular security.
    • Double-click on a symbol in the ticker to send the symbol to your default linked toolset (Gray).
    • Hover on the market breadth visuals to see additional details in a pop-up window.
  • Creating a Custom Ticker

    You can customize the Market Ticker to display up to 50 securities you want to track. To create a custom ticker, open the Ticker menu in the bottom left-hand corner of your workspace, and select Edit Custom Ticker List from the bottom of the View menu.

  • Viewing Market Breadth

    You can add Market Breadth visuals to display along with any symbol list in your ticker from the ticker menu. After choosing Market Breadth from the menu, select from Advancing/Declining Issues, New High/Low, and Advancing/Declining Volume across the AMEX, NASDAQ, or NYSE.

    Market Breadth visuals will display at the end of the symbols in your ticker. If you would like to only display market breadth in your ticker, choose the custom ticker list for display and remove all the symbols from the custom ticker list.
