Does anyone know of a web site that will give the total return for 20 days (1 month return) for a select "symlist"
of stocks (or even one at a time) instead of using yahoo and a start and end date and then manually getting the gain
(or loss)?
Just looking for ideas since I am doing a manual backtest and it would be nice to just enter a ticker and see what it did
Vs charting or yahoo.
Thank you

May offer something for your request...

* They have an interesting discussion about dividends with the total return concept.

CONCEPT: Basic calculation not including any dividends

Reference: http://www.investopedia.com/terms/h/holdingperiodreturn-yield.asp

6 months is about : 20 trading days in a month * 6 months = 120 days

Fetcher[
set{x, close - close 120 days ago}
set{xx, x / close 120 days ago}
draw xx
add column xx
