Find the stock you are looking for — by its ticker or the company name. Then hit 'add'.
The stock has now been added to your watchlist. You can now write notes to it, and StockPad will track the change in price between notes — and show you basic stats about how the stock has performed since it was added.
You can also open a chart for each stock. The dates you wrote notes are marked, and a chart for the SP500 index is superimposed onto it to make it easy to compare your stock's movements with the wider market.
That's it. Your stock and your notes are saved. Come back any time to read or add new notes.
