To show a list of instruments, go to the main window, and select "Lists" from the "Display" menu.
The dropdown menu (highlighted in yellow on the image below) is used to select the list of instruments of your choice.
By default, the platform offers the most common lists, organized by country and by type (equities, forex, indices and futures).
You can also create personal lists to quickly access instruments you want to follow or instruments that are not in default lists.
To quickly display a list containing all of your charts which have been loaded during the session, select "Displayed Securities" from the dropdown menu.

The list columns can be personalized by clicking on the wrench icon in the top left hand corner of each list.
By checking and unchecking the boxes in the popup menu, you choose which columns to show in your list.
