Viewing your Stocks in the Today View

In this lesson for Tutor for the Stocks app on the Mac, I look at how to view your stocks you are watching in the Stock app in the Today view on your Mac.

Accessing the Today View
To access the Today view, which shows what is going on today, you click on the three horizontal lines on the far right of your Menu bar. This is also how you access your Notification Center. You’ll see two options when you click on the lines – Today and Notifications. Click on Today. This will show various widgets highlighting what is going on today.

Viewing Stock Information
Int he Stocks widget, you’ll see the stocks you are watching. Click on the numbers to cycle through the current price, percentage in loss or gain for the day, and the current market cap. Click on the Stock symbol to open that stock in the Stocks app.

Managing your Widgets in the Today View
If your Stocks aren’t showing in the Today view, you need to add the Stock widget to the view. To do this, click on Edit at the boom of the Today view. If you have new widgets that can be added to your Today view, you will see More at the bottom instead of Edit. Once you click on this, you will see your widgets you can add on the right. Click on the green ‘+’ to add any widget to your Today View. On the left side are your current widgets, you can re-order them by dragging the three horizontal lines up or down to the right of the widget name.
