Looking Up Symbols

Note: Fund Symbols | Stock Symbols

To look up the symbol for a fund, stock or company, click Symbol Lookup. The Lookup screen appears.

The first ten names matching your text appear, together with their symbols.

Fund Symbols: Note that funds may have up to three symbols; if no official symbol exists then one is assigned by the system. All are valid, so you can select any one of them to represent the desired fund.

Stock Symbols: The following exchange codes may be attached to stock symbols using hyphens; for example, MSFT-Q. If no exchange code is attached, GlobeAdvisor will retrieve all stocks with that symbol. Note that different Canadian and US companies may use the same symbol:

T - Toronto
N - New York
M - Montreal
A - American
X - Canadian Venture (CDNX)
Q - NASDAQ
Q2 - NASDAQ-OTCBB
D - CDN
I - Index
