Australian and US Sector Workbooks

Following recent changes in the constituents of the Australian and S&P500 indices, the Optuma sector workbooks have been updated. 

Some of the workbook page tabs have sample Page Layouts, so be sure to watch the video to learn how to use them (both with and without watchlists) to quickly set up your preferred chart space.

Also, some of the watchlists include the new conditional colours in the columns, such as green for positive monthly performance values.


Note: To see the charts requires the current 64bit version of the Optuma software and an active account with a subscription to our Australian or US data.

Download and customise the sector workbooks

Optuma clients can download and open the workbooks and set up their own charts and tools by clicking the buttons on the right and saving the files. Once saved, double-click on the file to open, and click yes when prompted to move them from the download location to your default Workbooks folder. Note that to access the charts requires an active data subscription. Please contact us if you have any questions.
