Anyone have any idea how to remove sectors and/or industries from a filter?

For instance, I can't stand sifting through all the Miners (especially gold) that keep coming up in mine.

Another option is to screen for all energy stocks and check them all and click "IGNORE CHECKED" at the bottom of the page.


Step 1:
Use this to find the industry

apply to industry(mining - gold)

Step 2:

click button VIEW and change to --> Table - Clean

Step 3:

Click the empty box to the left of the column heading symbol (all boxes are now checked)

Step 4:

Scroll to the bottom of the screen

Click the button IGNORE CHECKED

This is a variation of what @four suggests. You could leverage the "buy", "sell", "hold" attributes to accomplish something like this.

Create a filter that gets the stocks you don't want to see. Mark each of those as "sell". Once they are marked you can then add this to any of your normal filters so those stocks will not be shown " and myrating is not sell"

Of course this assumes you are not already using the buy, sale, or hold attributes. This also assumes that other scans you may want to see those results.
