: : 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.

: Thanks,

Mark, my cash account graphs are usually for the trailing year. If I have had cash in the account and remove it before the end of the month, then the dividend entry causes a rediculous spike.
