CREATE A WATCH LIST

     

These instructions will explain how to create a Watch List of Australian Securities in BodhiGold. If you do not have BodhiGold installed on your computer, please refer to this tutorial: .

The Watch List appears on the opening screen of BodhiGold. You can add symbols from any exchange you have subscribed to.
The Watch List displays the following fields:

Code This field contains the code for the symbol preceded by the 3-letter exchange code that it is traded on. For example: ANZ Bank would appear as ASX:ANZ. ASX is the 3-letter code for the Australian Securities Exchange and ANZ is the code for ANZ Bank.
Date The last date you have downloaded data for this symbol.
Price The close price for the date [above].
Move The percentage this symbol has either gone up or down in price since it's last trading date. If the entry is in black the price has gone up whilst red indicates the price has fallen.
DivYield Dividend shown as a percentage of the last sale price of securities.
EPS Measures the earnings that are attributed to each ordinary share over a twelve month period.
Sector The GICS sector this symbol is classified under.
Please Note: you can sort on any of these fields by clicking on the column heading (i.e. Sector).
