Voleo #FeatureSpotlight shows you how to maximize your Investment Club performance by leveraging Voleo’s specialized features.


Building a Stock Watchlist

Today’s #FeatureSpotlight shows you how you can build a stock watchlist.

Why is it important?

A stock watchlist is a list of stocks that you monitor because you are interested in buying or selling them once they meet certain investment criteria. This list allows you to make more informed and well-timed investment decisions. The stocks that will live on your watchlist are stocks that you are familiar with and that you have researched or are planning to research and discuss with your investment club. Typically, an investor will monitor the list either daily or weekly and propose or place a trade once certain criteria have been met. 

There are over 8,000 companies listed on US stock exchanges. Turning that mass of data into a manageable list allows an investor to track companies and stay on top of the most relevant financial news. This gives you a better chance of capturing moves early and reacting when something happens in the market. 

Leveraging the stock watchlist feature within Voleo helps you see this list in one place, reducing work and saving you time
