Symbol description in Real Time Market Scanner?

Postby indsvote » 06 Jan 2011

I can not find that this is an option - even as I have easily imported a symbol list with Description in to the Quote Manager. Am I overlooking something, or is this important information not possible to put to display in the window?

This question has been answered earlier in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6294&hilit=scanner

You need to create a study called "Description".

Code: Select all

plot1(description, "Description");
Compile and insert it into your scanner window.

cheers,

Great! Thanks a lot!

I would though hope they add it as a standard option, as it seems as one of the most natural columns to include in the window.
