To set up a personal stock watchlist, sign in to MSN.com using your Microsoft account. Once logged in, you can access the stock watchlist tool, type the various ticker symbols and add them to your personal watchlist.
To set up your stock watchlist, go to MSN.com, and click Money. Once on the MSN Money website, find a blue box on the right side of the page that has a link titled My Watchlist. By clicking this box, you can proceed to the My Watchlist page and sign in to your Microsoft account. Once you've signed in to your account, you can see your watchlist and a box that reads Enter a Symbol or Name. Here you can enter any stock symbol to add to your list. For example, entering MSFT into the box and clicking the Add button puts Microsoft stock on your watchlist.
You can proceed to add other tickers and save the watchlist with your Microsoft account, allowing you to view it from your phone, tablet or computer. There are several buttons on the right side of the page, below the Quote Search box, that allow you to manage your watchlist by reordering, adding, printing or removing stocks.
