Adjusted/Unadjusted Close

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 Adjustment WorkSheet.

Ignore Distributions

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.

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.
