: : : I would like to compare investments from two different portfolios on one plot. Is it possible to plot across portfolios on one graph, in other words?
: : : Thanks.
: : Hi Marden,
: : Yes, you would do this by opening both the investments you want to compare.
: : Investments can belong to any number of portfolios. You can also just
: : open any investments you want, regardless of what portfolio they are in.
: : So, to compare 2 investments, just use "File/Open Investment(s)..." and
: : select these 2 investments, and then they will both be open. You can then
: : overlay them, or compare them however else you wish. If you plan to compare
: : these often, you can even set up a new portfolio with these 2 investments,
: : and just open the portfolio when you want to compare them.
: : Thanks,

: Thanks Mark. The overlay I had in mind, though, was two curves on one plot without adding them. When I use the overlay, I get the two added together.
: I can display the two side by side on separate screens, but I can't plot both of them on one screen. Is this right? Or am I confused here? Thanks.

You can overlay them on the same plot, without adding them, by using the
"Graphs/Investment Overaly" graph types. When using these graph types
you can select which investments to overlay with the "Graphs/Options/
Overlaid Investments..." command.
These graph types will plot the normalized price or price+dist or each
investment. The price is normalized to the value on the starting graph date.
