Hello again,

I give it a try, but unsuccessfully. FYI, I need to import lists of symbols from TWS, not IQFeed.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Have a nice WE.

Is there a way within the Real-Time Market Scanner to re-organize the instruments? I see right click, sort, but that won't allow the user to put the tickers in a specific sequence. Thanks.

Start Stock Screener - Yahoo! Finance, filter all relevant stocks and than click "export all xxxx instruments". This list you can import easy in QM.

bomberone1,

when you have a list or spreadsheet of the instrument names for your data feed, you can copy and paste this list directly into the Scanner. Otherwise you might have to add them one by one.

bomberone1,

until then it might make sense to create your own "hot lists" using workspaces (i.e. the scanner in this workspace would only include the symbols that you want within that "hot list"). This way you can easily combine different lists in a new scanner with copy and paste.

Regards,

ABCTG
