Lists of securities

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.
