Watch List Widget

Watch Lists allow you to effortlessly access and switch between different symbols you are following for efficient tracking and monitoring of the performance without flipping through charts every minute. TrendSpider takes Watch Lists a step further by automatically sending SMS or email notifications when an indicated pattern has been spotted anywhere on your Watch List. For example, you might configure an alert to fire off when a golden cross occurs.
