Comparative charts

Comparative charts

Comparative charts are the second type of charts with which you can work, on the website www.finecharts.com. As their name suggests, they are used for percentage comparison of the price development of assets, for a certain period defined by the user. Therefore, they are significantly simpler than STANDARD CHARTS, and their functionality is limited to this one task. Therefore, if a user needs to compare, for example, whether the mutual fund of the Generali PPF AM a.s. was more successful last year than the mutual fund of the ING IM CR a.s., then this is the right tool to do it.

Where can you create a comparative chart? The easiest way is to do it directly in the GRAPHICS EDITOR, in the subsection COMPARATIVE CHARTS.

Figure 1: Section CHARTS/COMPARATIVE CHARTS. A ready comparative chart is shown in the figure. This is a chart in which prices of stocks from the Prague stock market in the year 2010 are compared. Each such chart has its starting point, from which percentage gains or losses are calculated. The range of the chart can be set as precisely defined between two dates (a static chart that is no longer developing), or as a dynamic chart with a period set as N periods back. In the right upper part of the figure in there is a function for adding symbols into the figure: ADD. Here we can increase the number of symbols. If we would want to decrease the number of symbols, we can use the button located directly in the chart in the right upper corner.

Figure 2: Dialogue window ADD SYMBOL. 

Figure 3: The result of adding symbols into the chart - generally speaking, we can work just the same with COMPARATIVE CHARTS as with STANDARD CHARTS.

Figure 4: When we finish editing the chart we can either save the chart into a existing directory, or create a new directory and save the chart into it.

Figure 5: A newly created directory called PRAHA appeared in the user's list of directories together with the created chart. Note, however, an important thing - down on the right a blue rectangle highlights that we are in the subsection COMPARATIVE CHARTS. Other charts of the user, common price charts, are located in the second subsection STANDARD CHARTS.
