Hi Thomas,

With regards to Google and the different SPY weights, both GOOG and GOOGL are members of the SPX index so are included in the list, but our data provider includes total market cap for each one (ie counted twice).

The only way to include them once would be to run the calculation on a .csv list with only one listed. Also, try running it on the current S&P500 members only so that old members aren’t included.

Downloading the Market Cap data by cycling down a watchlist will not trigger a data download message as the data is requested on a stock-by-stock basis.
