How To Scan Sector and Industry WatchLists

You can filter the integrated Sector/Industry/Stock lists with saved or created Scan conditions. We will use the pre-built Drill Down layout which contains the three integrated WatchLists to show how you can filter Sectors/Industries/Stocks in one layout. As you spacebar through the filtered Sector list, the integrated Industry and Stock lists can be automatically filtered as well. Steps to set up the Scans are below.
