Plotting Economic Data

Postby t123knight » 22 Nov 2010

I have economic data in a spread sheet that I'd like to plot on a daily chart. Can this be done?

Dear t123knight,

Could you please be more precise? In what format do you have the data? Is it an ASCII file?

I have the data is in an excel spread sheet. One column is a date the other is a numerical value. The data is reported twice a month.

Dear 123knight,

Is this end of day data? If the numerical data is Close, you need to duplicate this column three times in Excel. Thus, you can successfully import this file via Quote Manager --> File --> Import --> ASCII: date, open, high, low, and close columns and plot a daily chart.
