How do I view a security's price history/market value graph?
Quicken makes it easy to focus on the specifics of a security's price history as well as the market value of your own holdings. You can alternate between the price history and market value views of the security, and customize the time period to any meaningful date range. You can also put it all in a larger perspective by watching key fundamental data, and comparing current prices with the 52-week high and low.
- Click the Investing tab.
- Click the Tools button, and choose Security List.
- Click the name of the security you want to work with.
- Click Edit Security Details.
- Use the drop-down list in the middle of the window to switch between the Price History and Market Value graphs.
- To change the date range
Select a year or other option from the date range drop-down list.
- To display exact price information for a particular day
Hold down the mouse button and drag it left or right over the graph. The price information for a particular day appears at the bottom of the graph. Press the LEFT ARROW or RIGHT ARROW key to move to the previous or the next day.
- To adjust the price of the security to account for any stock splits
Select Adjust for Splits. Clearing this option shows the actual market price of the security, regardless of split activity. (Quicken adjusts for splits only for securities that you hold.)
- To maximize the graph
Click the triangle in the upper-right corner of the graph.
- To print the graph
Maximize the graph and then click Print.
- The price history/market value graph is based on the prices you've entered for that security.
- Quicken tries to show the prices you've entered as a single line in the price history graph, but if there isn't enough room for the date range you've selected, the prices appear as separate dots. When this happens, try selecting a longer date range, such as Year or 2 Years, to show a line.
