Does anyone know how to display the price charts as a % performance chart instead? I would like to be able to see charts normalized to a % gain/loss graph over the selected period of time. That way I think they would be very easy to compare. For example, over 6 months one stock may show an increase from $100 to $120 ($20 increase) while another might show an increase from $10 to $30 ($20 increase.) But the percent change would be significantly different between them. Basically, I'm looking for a standard performance % chart starting at 0% and showing the +-% line chart over the chart timeframe.

Try adding the following line to your filter

add column roc(63,1)

this will give you a column that shows you the percentage change over the last 63 days (use any number you want here).

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried the ROC as you suggested, but it really doesn't give the same thing as a performce % gain/loss.

Basically, what I'm looking for would be the performance graph where a stock is compared against some benchmark. This graph starts out at 0% and then goes +- as a percentage. Any ideas how to do that? I was looking for just a single line on the chart, but I would happily accept a benchmark on the graph.

-----------

Show stocks where the daily volume is above Microsoft's:

Fetcher[
show stocks where volume is above ind(MSFT,volume)
add column ind(MSFT,volume)
]



Also...
Nasdaq Composite = ^IXIC

Fetcher[
set{diff,close / ind(^IXIC,close)}
draw diff
compare with ^IXIC
]

Comparative Relative Strength

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parameters Comparative Symbol
Period


Usage relative strength(^IXIC,45)


Description The comparative relative strength computes the ratio of the change in price between two stocks. Often this measure is used to compare an input stock with the change in price of an index. On StockFetcher, you can use the comparative relative strength to find stocks that are outperforming or underperforming an index or any other given stock.



Fetcher[

symlist(c,xom,bac,aapl,msft)
add column relative strength(SPY, 63)
draw relative strength(spy,63)
sort on column 5 descending

]



Here you can make relative strength comparisons to any stock or index, and set the look back period as well. Note that this is a ratio of the change in stock X compared to the change in SPY (or whatever benchmark you choose).
