Watch Lists from Scottrade to Trade Ideas Symbol Lists
« on: September 26, 2016, 02:20:59 pm »
When Scottrade Elite first came out, I could see my Trade Ideas symbol lists, and edit them.  That capability has been removed.

Currently I have 4 main lists I use in Scottrade.  If I make an entry on these lists, they appear in Trade Ideas after a day or two. 

Q1. Does anyone know what process moves the items form my Scottrade watch list to Trade Ideas symbol list?  I assume it is an end-of-day process, but sometimes it takes 2-3 days for symbols to move.

Q2. Looking (in Elite II) at Trade Ideas Alert window Symbol Lists, shows some lists that I've long ago deleted from Scottrade.  How can I log into Trade Ideas (using my Scottrade login?) to maintain and clean up these lists?

Q3. A particular symbol (on which I had an annoying loss) has been deleted from all my lists.  I don't want to see it any more.  However, Trade Ideas still alerts on it.  So again, I'd like to view my symbol lists to clean them up.  How do I do that?

I have called Scottrade on this.  Ticket #360259-7261131#  They have not been able to answer it.

Apologies for this delayed reply.

Symbol lists can be edited in Trade Ideas from within the Configuration menu, in the Symbol List tab.
