Optuma Symbol Lists

We now offer Optuma Symbol Lists that contain the constituents of the major exchanges (eg ASX200, FTSE100, S&P500, Nasdaq 100, Russell 2000, TSX Composite, etc) and also the US S&P500 Sectors (Energy, Finance, Consumer Discretionary, etc).

For more information on Symbol Lists and how they can be used in your analysis (note that you can create your own custom lists) click here. If you don’t have access to them the lists can be added to your subscription via the Data section in your Account Page.

Note: you will only be able to see the symbol lists for the data you are subscribed to, so to see the Dow Jones Industrials list you would need to be subscribed to the US data.

Once added to your account, log in to Optuma and the lists will be available under the Symbol List tab of the Security Selection window, allowing you to quickly open the components of the indices or sectors as a watchlist, or with one of your saved Page Layouts (see the video below to learn more on creating your own Page Layouts).

Unfortunately we have yet to find a source for the Australian sector constituents that can be integrated with our data servers, so click the button below to download a example workbook containing tabs for each of the ASX sectors.

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

Optuma clients can download and open the workbooks and set up their own charts and tools by clicking the buttons below 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. With the workbook open you will be able to see examples of charts, tools and watchlists. If there’s any that you like, save as a Page Layout and apply to your own charts.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

    Thank you VERY much for this useful tool (particularly for my attempts at top down analysis). Your example layouts have leapfrogged my learning and understanding of scripting. Im certain you have just saved me hours of trial and error in scripting exercises.

    I can’t download the asx sector workbook. The link doesn’t seem to be working.
