Generating an instrument list
For the simple and advanced view, there is the feature “Generate instrument list” in the lower part of the window. When you activate this option, before you click on “Import”, all newly imported symbols are arranged into newly created instrument lists. Immediately after the import, you can call up these instrument lists and work and trade with the imported symbols.
If you select the option “Generate per instrument type”, an individual instrument list is created for each imported instrument type; you then receive lists that are arranged according to stocks, futures, currency and CFDs.
If you select the option “Generate per instrument type & exchange”, even more specific lists are created, e.g. stocks Nasdaq, stocks Nyse, futures CBOT, futures Nymex etc.
Under “Max.”, you can set the maximum number of symbols that should be saved in a list before a new list is started. We developed this option in order to avoid you accidentally creating lists with several thousand values, which would cause the performance of your PC to suffer.
