: Hi Mark,

: This has to do with a plotting offset.

: I've been plotting Price+Distribution.
: The vertical scale on the left is the NAV.
: The "cursor snap" is activated to give me a date and NAV value at the bottom right of the screen.

: If I then compared the NAV and date at the bottom of the screen with the NAV for that same date in the data table, the NAV is not the same. There is a constant offset. I did this for two funds. One had an offset of 4.866, the other 7.187.

: What do you think is going on??

Hi Roger,
This graph type (Price + Distribution) is plotting the sum of the NAV plus all of your prior distributions/share. The offset you are seeing is due to
distributions you have recorded. The idea of this graph is that it adjusts
for the normal dip in share price due to a distribution in order to graph
an accurate picture of the investment's performance. For more information
on this, or any other, graph type, select "Help/Help on Graph" while viewing
the graph.
