KRFT replaced STRZA on 3/18/2013. The current Nasdaq 100 list is:

The STRZA change is causing me a problem because it is an open position in my system's portfolio and I can't stage a sell order. I get a "Symbol was not found or is not supported" error when I try on the website.

Is there any chance you can add the symbol back temporarily so I can place closing orders? Perhaps you could keep the symbol around but for closing orders only so no-one accidently establishes a new position in it.

I'll hold off publishing my signals now in the hope this can be addressed soon.

Incidently I'm using worden brother's telechart for my data in Wealth-Lab but their (worden maintained) nasdaq 100 watchlist still shows STRZA so I hope they update it soon to match the real real nasdaq 100 constituents.

Symbols that are removed should still be supported for exiting an existing position. We'll look at it ASAP.

Right now, you can stage an exit order in STRZA using the WealthSignals Publisher. It will be successfully accepted.

Not on the website yet (to be fixed).

Unfortunately that didn't work. I used the WealthSignals Publisher to upload the sell order (sell 246 STRZA at a limit of $21.22) and it appeared in the stage signals list on the website as the web page count down to publishing, but it then disappeared when the actual publishing took place. So it is not showing in Today's Signals on the website and it was not included in the e-mail for subscribers. So it would seem I'm stuck in that position in limbo at present.

No worries: your signal will be published anyway (later today or tomorrow) and email to subscribers will also be resent.

We'll fix that ASAP, thanks for the heads-up.

I think Tesla Motors (symbol TSLA) has just joined the Nasdaq 100 in place of Oracle, but when I tried to place a buy order for it wealthsignals said symbol not found.

Thanks for the heads-up. The current data source for the Nasdaq 100 index constituents is slow to update. We're looking to replace it with a more suitable feed.

Update: we're working on a switchover to a different, more timely source that tracks updates in index components. We expect the transition to be finished ASAP, and then the list of supported symbols will be updated.

NOTE!
After the GOOG share class split last year, Nasdaq later incorporated additional classes of stock from the other components, bringing the Nasdaq "100" to a total of 107 symbols. The complete Nasdaq 100 index list of components is as follows. Symbols in bold type are share classes for the same company.

AAL AAPL ADBE ADI ADP ADSK AKAM ALTR ALXN AMAT AMGN AMZN ATVI AVGO BBBY BIDU BIIB BRCM CA CELG CERN CHKP CHRW CHTR CMCSA CMCSK COST CSCO CTRX CTSH CTXS DISCA DISCK DISH DLTR DTV EA EBAY EQIX ESRX EXPD FAST FB FISV FOX FOXA GILD GMCR GOOG GOOGL GRMN HSIC ILMN INTC INTU ISRG KLAC KRFT LBTYA LBTYK LLTC LMCA LMCK LRCX LVNTA MAR MAT MDLZ MNST MSFT MU MYL NFLX NTAP NVDA NXPI ORLY PAYX PCAR PCLN QCOM QVCA REGN ROST SBAC SBUX SIAL SIRI SNDK SPLS SRCL STX SYMC TRIP TSCO TSLA TXN VIAB VIP VOD VRSK VRTX WDC WFM WYNN XLNX YHOO

From the perspective of trading and diversification, it makes little sense to include all share classes in the same DataSet since those in the same company have a correlation of 1 (or very near it). In other words, for Wealth-Lab's Nasdaq 100, we include only the first in these groups:

CMCSA CMCSK
DISCA DISCK
FOXA FOX
GOOGL GOOG
LBTYA LBTYK
LMCA LMCK LVNTA
