    • Double-clicking any row within an existing tab in a Market Grid.

    • Right-click a row that is already populated with an instrument and select Add instrument row... from the context menu. The new instrument row appears below the selected row.

  2. Use Search or Explore to add one or more instruments to the Market Grid. If you choose a product, all of the instruments available for the product are added to the Market Grid.

    The selected instruments are added to the Market Grid.
