: I keep my cash accounts, as well as my stock/fund positions in FM. However, when I convert a cash account into another investment, then later enter the end-of-month interest into the cash account, the graph of this account takes a very large step and shows rediculously large numbers for yield.

: How do I make the chart show a useful yield value?

Hi Rich,
Where are you looking at the yield #'s? If you're looking at the yield
for a very short period of time, like right around when you enter a distrib.
that was really accrued over a whole month, then it may appear very large,
as the yields are annualized. You can either enter the income daily (not
very fun) or look at the yield over a longer time period, or for a time period
where the entered interest was accrued.
