New feature: Chart Comparisons

Okay, chart comparisons are now online: Compare Charts

... the easiest way to use it is possibly to use the Fund Statistics tables to find the funds you are interested in, then select up to five funds (use the checkboxes on the right of the tables) and click the "Compare" button at the top of the table. Note that this only works for registered users! (see attached screenshots)

One great feature I've added is the ability to "smooth" the results by using the moving average data rather than the actual unit price data to do the comparisons. You can choose to show 2, 5, 10, 20 or 50 day moving average data ... the higher the number, the less accurate it becomes in real terms, but the more it begins to show the underlying trend of the fund.

Example 1 (no smoothing)

HBC0027AU, WAR0012AU, BTA0026AU, FSF0872AU
Chart.


Example 2 (smoothed using 5 day moving average)

HBC0027AU,WAR0012AU,BTA0026AU,FSF0872AU
Chart.


Example 3 (smoothed using 20 day moving average)

HBC0027AU,WAR0012AU,BTA0026AU,FSF0872AU
Chart.


Don't forget that moving averages are "lagging" indicators ... for example, the 50 day moving average is the average value over the past 50 days, so the actual fund value may be much higher or lower depending on movement in the past few days.
