/stocktopus GOOGL

for a complete list of commands the bot supports.

/stocktopus help

In addition to what is covered in the help menu, stocktopus also supports team-wide watchlists. To utilize these you use the same format as you would for your personal watch list but simple add a name after a # character immediately after the command.

For example: /stocktopus watch #funlist GOOG Would add GOOG to a watch list called funlist, and then anyone in your Slack team can access that same list Ex. /stocktopus list #funlist

You might also want to watch/buy or lookup securities listed on non-US exchanges. To do so simply add the exchange followed by a colon(:) before the ticker name. Ex. /stocktopus tse:are to list the ARE stock from the Toronto Stock Exchange

Note: other exchanges are no longer supported by the application. To enable this feature on a local build, you can build with alphavantage instead of IEX using make docker-alpha

Stocktopus does not collect any personal identifying information. It does not store a history of your requests. The only data it does store is a unique ID received from Slack for a user if they opt to use the list or play money features. If you use the list or play money features it also stores the list of stocks a user has bought or added to their watch list.
