Quotes are situated at the top of the Navigation panel (shown below), this allows you to quickly reference the price and daily gain or loss of a ticker, and to add tickers individually to the Table. These tickers can then be compared to each other in the Table or viewed alongside any other dataset you have loaded in the Table. The quotes window is also available at the top the table next to the Actions pull down, this is helpful when the Navigation panel is collapsed (shown below).
The left-most numerical column of the Quotes list shows the current price, the center column shows the price change since last close, and the right-most column shows the price change in percentage.
The image below shows an example of manipulating the quotes list directly from the Navigation Panel.
The image below shows an example of manipulating the quotes list from the quotes pulldown menu in the table top panel. This is handy when the Navigation Panel is collapsed.
Tickers can be added to the Quotes List a couple of different ways.
On way to add tickers to the Quotes List, is to simply begin typing the ticker symbol or company name into the searchbox where it says ‘Add Ticker…’ in the Quotes list and then select from the search results that appear, as shown below. The numeric value next to Quotes is the number of active tickers you have selected.
Another way to add to the Quotes List is to use the Enter Ticker box which is available at the top of every page as seen in the screenshot below. The process is the same you simply begin typing the symbol or company name in the box and you can select it from the results.
Note if you enter a ticker, and your Quotes list is off (i.e. the switch next to Quotes is in the off position), then Stock Rover will auto-select the Quotes list in the Navigation Panel and will change the data set you are viewing to Quotes. If Quotes are on, then adding a ticker will simply add it to the current data set you are viewing.
You can individually add tickers in the Quotes List to the main Table by checking their checkboxes on the left side of the ticker symbol name. You can also select ‘Select All,’ (boxed in red in the screenshot below) to automatically show all quotes in the Table. Quotes in the Table are sometimes referred to as “research tickers.” When quotes, or research tickers, are added to the Table, they will be included in each table of stocks being viewed, regardless of whether the research ticker is part of that dataset. The following image shows a couple of research tickers, AAPL, GILD, and SPY selected for inclusion in the main Table.
Quotes in the Table will be bolded to distinguish them from others in the dataset (see circled items in the screenshot below). If a research ticker happens to be native to the dataset being viewed, it will still appear bolded.
The quotes list can be expanded or collapsed in the navigation panel. See the screenshot below, the triangle is circled, this gives you control to expand and collapse within this panel. Once expanded, you can check on and off which tickers you want to include.
The Drag and Drop feature is available for the quotes list so it can be reordered in the navigation panel or in the quotes list. To drag a quote, click on the ticker so it is highlighted and hold down the mouse to drag-and-drop the quote into a different position.
To remove all Quotes tickers from the Quotes List, click ‘Remove All.’ To individually remove a quote from the list, click on its ‘X’.
Clicking on “X” removes all Quotes tickers from the Quotes List
If Quotes are included in the Table, right-click its row in the Table and select ‘Remove From Quotes List,’ as shown below.
To turn off Quotes click the button next to the numeric value next to quotes in the navigation menu (shown below).
Turning this off will remove the tickers from the table but will not remove them from your quotes list.
