Am I missing something obvious? Is there a way to get the dow jones or S&P 500 index plotted on the charts or on a separate chart?

Thanks asr81. The Dow scale from your filter is in the thousands. Is there a way to change it to the hundreds? Also is there a way to have it draw directly on the stock chart itself, although the "y" values are different than the stock's? If not, could SF consider it?

Thanks asr_81, I see how the DJ scale can change through the divisor within your filter, however the individual stock charts get "flattened" because the scale is the DJIA one.

I tried the line that Safetrade proposes, however there must be a minor typo or something as it has now effect on the chart.

One solution might be to create a transparency of the Dow and overlay it after printing a chart.

It would be nice if SF could add the plot as an option

Actually, what SAFeTRADE wrote is largely correct.

You can write "compare WITH ^dji" or "compare TO ^dji" or "compare xhd@#$kfl ^dji" or "compare ANYTHING ^dji", so long as you have the word compare in the filter.
