Allow use of Watchlists in Backtester
I would like to create lists of stocks (watchlists) that I could then use when running Backtests, instead of Backtest selecting from the entire universe of stocks.

Thank you, Erik! That works.

You can get the results that you're after (if i understand correctly), by creating a custom search in the UniSearch tool.
Start with the search that you want to use (Rare Birds for example). Customize that search by adding a new parameter:
Date/Time : TimeOfSearch
Parameter : Stocks/Filter By/Watchlist
Operator : =
Value : <Choose your watchlist>
Save this search as a new search (My Modified Rare Birds, for example).
Now, run your backtest against the "My Modified Rare Birds" search.
