: I just started trying Fund Manager and I keep getting asterisks with interpolated prices for my mutual funds. What is the difference between interpolation and simple averaging of fund prices? Which should I use and why?
: Thank you.

Hi Mike,

An interpolated price is one Fund Manager calculated, based on prices from
surrounding dates. If for example, you generate a portfolio value report
for a date with no closing prices record, Fund Manager will interpolate a
price for that date, to use in the calculation. FM will do 2 types of
interpolation, either linear or step. Linear is drawing a straight line
between the 2 surrounding prices. Step is just using the prior price.
