Got a question on Watchlist? Add to ...

9:54 Sonali Verma: Are you talking about a fund's inception?

If you go to the Cumulative Return view, it shows you the return since inception in the last column.

2) Can all stocks, say Stock1, Stock2, Fund1, Fund2 all in one single page?

9:56 Sonali Verma: Hi, William. Currently, I'm afraid you can't put them all together.

You can use the Display option to display up to 100 securities (depending on your browser) per section.

No sorry, I meant from the date of transaction when I actually bought/sold them

9:57 Sonali Verma: At the moment, I'm afraid not.

Sonali, great work so far. The only bug I see is accessing the Watchlist on a mopbile device (iPhone 3GS), I can see the funds, but I can't see all the data related to the # of shares I own that I entered such as the

...such as the "Total My Shares"

is there a way to get ETF holdings in your watchlist

10:01 Sonali Verma: Hello, Lloyd!

You can simply add tickers to include ETFs in your Watchlist.

Watchlist tip #1: Quick and easy ticker searches

And you can track the number of shares/units you hold as well. Go to the My Shares view and the Shares column. You can input the number of shares you hold by using the +Add Shares link.

Thank you!

Can you freeze laft most column and title row in the display. The feature would be very useful when you have to scroll horizentally to get to other data and verticaly to get to the other stocks or funds at the bottom

10:02 Sonali Verma: Great idea! It's something that we've looked into and are still working on. This particular feature has turned out to be more challenging than you might expect.

10:12 Sonali Verma: Thank you all for joining us with your questions and your feedback. Keep it coming!
