One of the more popular requests from users is the ability to organize their favorite indicator list.   With just a few favorites on your 'favorites' list, its fairly easy to glance at it and see what's happening but if you get more than just a few indicators on the list, it can be difficult to tell at a glance what's happening in various sectors and indices. 

The favorites list has always had the ability to sort and filter by groups (e.g., stocks, commodities, bonds, etc) but we felt (as did our users) that having another way to organize favorites would be useful.  After taking a look at ways to organize things - and listing to our users - we built 'folders' for favorites.

Now, users have the ability to create whatever folders they want, name them whatever they want to name them and store any favorite indicators in those folders.  Some highlights of this new feature:

  • Ability to create new folders from the 'favorites' page as well as from any chart page.
  • Ability to add an indicator to multiple folders.
  • Ability to add an a new favorite configuration to a folder other than the one the 'default configuration' is in.
  • When you click through to an indicator from a favorite folder, the 'favorite navigation' arrows (at the top of the chart) will navigate through only that folder.
  • Delete a favorite folder does not delete the favorites in that folder.

I've put together a video overview of the favorite folders functionality, which you can see below. You can also find it (and other videos) on our video overview section as well as on our YouTube page.


As with all new features / functionality, there may be some issues. We have a few 'bugs' on our list to fix that we've found and will gladly take a look at any issues you find when using the new favorites folder functionality.

 As always, if you have any ideas on how to make this feature more useful or any other ideas for the site, please let us know.
