This charting is not against any given benchmark; only a performance chart for a particular asset versus its 50, 100 and 200 moving price average. A somewhat pure view of performance of monies you may have invested.
If you're curious about a holding for the past 1 year period (this chart set to 1 year, but may be changed) to date, add your tickers/symbols. The chart is also set for "daily", this may be switched to weekly price, which will slightly alter the appearance of the graph. Save the link for a future visit, as desired.
This chart is set for VWINX. You will see the ticker at the upper left area. "Inspect" box (just above chart middle) is also selected. This allows the cursor to be placed on the graph for a particular date listing pricing information. You may "deselect" inspect. Additionally, just below the ticker symbol at the upper left area is "RSI 14". This is the relative strength index setting for a 14 day period. In theory, an above 70 reading is nearing an overbought, while a 30 or below is an oversold indication.To change
to another ticker/symbol merely type the letters to replace VWINX in the box. Click "UPDATE" just to the right or the keyboard enter key. NOTE:
The price line includes splits, dividends and other distributions; per Stockcharts information. http://schrts.co/nr9enV
As to VWINX in particular, in this chart, one is able to discover the effect of early stage rising interest rates and a slap down of equities during the end period of January into February. Also, that the 50 day moving average line moving below the 100 and "looking" at the 200 day moving average price. Pretty smelly looking chart. Most bond charts right now have this appearance, as well as some equity trending in the same directions. Hoping I didn't miss something.
Well, anyway; be curious and enjoy.
