How do I set up my Price Watchlist on my home page?

The Price Watchlist is the quickest way to check if the prices of your commodities have shifted and by how much. You can create your Price Watchlist by clicking the + icon at the top of the Watchlist. This will display a list of all price series you have access to.

To remove a price series, just click the bin icon on the right-hand side of the price tile.

You can now create dual axes charts and add up to six price series, making them even more powerful. When you’re happy with your chart, click ‘Done’ to save it.

You can change the order of the charts in the My Charts widget by clicking and holding the chart tile and dragging it up or down the list.
