I am having trouble using the watchlist with multiple lists in a filter, I have tried the following:

watchlist(AAP) and it works
watchlist(ETF) and it works
watchlist(AAP,ETF) and it just searches AAP
watchlist(ETF,AAP) and it just searches ETF

what am I doing wrong?

1. the watchlist command when used in a filter is expecting the names inside the parentheses, separated by commas, to be actual names of your own personal watchlists that you created in SF
and SF prefers the command to be

apply to watchlist()

2. if you want to limit a filter to a list of stocks use

apply to symlist(stock1,stock2,stock3, etc)

3. if you want your filter to use all of the etfs use

market is etf

I found the issue. There was a comment line after the watchlist line. Once I deleted it everything worked.

So, basically you posed an unsolvable problem for the rest of us because you didn't post your actual filter lines.

In the future post the filter lines along with a description of the problem and you'll probably see faster and more meaningful replies.

Thanks,
