Taking it one step further. Is there a way you can create user defined indexes. For example it would be great to plot all banking stocks as a sector and then look at an individual stocks performance against the sector. To achieve you would need some method to create an interpolated price for a stock which had not traded on the day.
Maybe a future release idea??

: Yes. You track an index, just like any other investment. Create
: an investment of type "index" and assign it the proper ticker symbol
: in order to retrieve prices. Just record that you own 0 shares. See
