What is a watchlist?
A watchlist is a list, where you can add the scrips (Stocks) in which you wish to trade-in.
How to add stocks to my watchlist?
Adding a Stock to your Watchlist is extremely easy. Click on the "+" icon in the top right corner. Just search for the stock and click on the Add or + button. You can filter your search by Cash (Stocks), Futures & Options, or Currencies and Commodities. The search bar is quite intuitive. You don’t even have to type the entire name of the scrip. All you need to do is put in the closest unique variable.
For example, if you are looking to add the NIFTY AUG17 8900 CE Call Option, you just need to type 8900 CE. You will get all the Call Options with a strike price of ₹8900 and choose from those.
You can create maximum of 20 watchlists and in one watchlist you can add a total of 100 scrips(Stocks).
