The FIRST() function can be used to get the first value of a bar (closing value by default) or indicator (see also LAST() function).

For example, FIRST() in a watchlist column will return the closing value of the first bar of the data series.

FIRST(BARDATE()) will return the date of the first bar, which can be formatted as a Date column in a watchlist, ie February 8th 1984 for ANZ.
