Has anyone figured out how to add stocks from companies listed on stock exchanges other than the US? I'm trying to get stocks from UK (FTSE) added, but it doesn't recognize stocks other than US stocks.

I'm sure Apple must be aware that there are other countries outside of the US.

I've managed to work this out. Don't even think about trying to find the stock symbol in Yahoo finance (it is useless).

Go to either the web site of the stock exchange you want to find (my case the London Stock Exchange) or go to Reuters Stock pages. Search for the stock and search down by country level.

For UK stocks you need to append ".L" to the end of every stock symbol you add. Yahoo does not recognize this.
