                                                   In a Script is there any way to iterate through a List-of-Symbols?

Basically I would like to just export a small subset of symbols each evening. I have created a watch-list of the Symbols I would like to export,
and have also created a List of Symbols

I have a script that can go through every single Symbol, but I would like to know if there is any way I can limit this script to just the Watch-list or List of Symbols?

As a secondary question, how do you edit the contents of a List of Symbols? I can create a list or delete it, but I cannot find any way to edit what is in an existing list.

Here is how to get every symbol in a watchlist: (Tools -> Script Editor)

string[] symbols = Watchlist.GetSymbols("name");

It is possible to create and update internal list of symbols (Symbols List), by selecting Symbol -> Symbols View.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
