How To Create A Data Grid
There are multiple ways to create a data Grid. We will review the major ones here. Remember, the data grid is your personalized and customized collection of important information you want to see anytime you look at a symbol. Create as many as you like and place as much data in each as makes sense to you. Group and organize data in ways that make the grids most effective for your use.
Click the Library Menu Button and Choose Data Grids
Select New Data Grid to open a blank Data Grid window
Click the Add Item (plus sign) button to open the items that can be added to the Data Grid:
- Add Value: to add value items such as basic stock data, technical or fundamental indicators, or to write an indicator PCF.
- Add Condition: to add conditional items such as T/F criteria based on technical or fundamental indicators or a condition PCF.
- Add Market Indicator: streaming filter results based on conditions you create.
Simply click on the item to add and repeat for as many items as you like. Remember, you can mix the data with values, conditions and market indicators.
