Canadian Symbols

Our Canadian data feed will undergo a number of symbol changes on July 7th to bring it into line with the Toronto stock exchange symbology. Most of the changes are simply to substitute "." for "/" in the symbol. For example BBL/A will become BBL.A.

If simply substituting a full-stop for a forward-slash does not work, then use the Search function (shortcut key F3) to find the new symbol:

Search Symbol
  1. Enter the first part of the symbol (e.g. "BBL")
  2. Click the Run button
  3. You will receive a list of all symbols containing the same "BBL" sequence.

Text Boxes, Captions and Arrows

The latest beta version contains a number of options to edit color, size, borders, etc. if you right-click on a text box, caption or arrow:
