Video transcript: How to import or export a watchlist

Hi, I'm Sonali Verma, deputy investment editor at the Report on Business. I'm going to show you how to import or export a Watchlist. It's very straightforward.

If you have a Stocklist or Fundlist already set up, it's easy to import those stocks and funds into your Watchlist. Here's how.

First, log in. If you haven't already registered, it will take less than a minute and it means you can access your Watchlist from any computer -- so go ahead and do it.

Save it (I'll save it to my Desktop).
