Watchlist tip #11: How to add international indexes

Stocks, funds, ETFs, commodites, indexes and currencies are all easy to view on your Watchlist.

The last couple of days I've showed which commodities and Canadian indexes you can add to your Watchlist.

Today, we'll look at international indexes. Some of the most popular will be the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones industrial average , but we have many others for the U.S. and around the world.

If you want to add them all at once to your Watchlist, try this: First, you might want to create a new list inside your Watchlist called international indexes. Next, copy and paste the lists below into the big orange ticker-add box in Watchlist. As long as each ticker is separated by a comma, then you should be able to add them all in at the same time. It should only take a few of seconds to do.

I find it is useful to sort this list by 52-week range so that I can easily see what markets are performing the best.
