Chart Pop-up Menu
|Right-clicking the mouse in the chart will bring up the "pop-up"
menu pictured here. From this menu you can perform several tasks within FastTrack for the
Web. These tasks are described below.
This will bring up the Appearance dialog, which allows
you to change various aspects of the chart.
These menu items allow you to load or save program aspects. It will bring up a submenu
with the following items to pick from:
This will cause the prices displayed as the Dashed Pole moves to show unadjusted or
adjusted closing price. Adjusted prices are computed by factoring in the impact of
dividends, splits, and other forms of distributions.
Viewing adjusted prices makes it easier to underhand how the chart lines are drawn . .
. the charts are always drawn using adjusted prices. Viewing unadjusted prices make it
easier to match up what you see in FastTrack to your brokerages statement or an old copy
of The Wall Street Journal.
For information on how to adjust prices. See the Distribution
This will either allow funds to be charted with or without distribution adjustment. An
example of this menu item's effect can be seen by charting a money market fund, such as
VMFXX, with distribution adjustment, is charted as a "stair-step". Without
distribution adjustment, VMFXX is charted as a straight line - as its price is always
equal to $1.
This will bring up a submenu from which you can select the date range to draw the
charts over. Periods to select.
This option moved to the Index Tab.
Clicking will display/hide the Chart Tools toolbar.
