Global Financial Data is unique in offering data series that span centuries of data. Consequently, GFD has made a special effort to provide graphs that meet the needs of our data series. With data series stretching back over a millennium, and hyperinflations of the past creating numbers in the quintillions, standard graphing tools would be insufficient to meet the needs of our customers. Whether you are graphing gold prices from the 1251 to 2010 or The Hungarian hyperinflation of 1946 during which it took over a quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) pengos to get a US Dollar, GFD’s graphing tools solve the numerical challenges our data provide.

The graphs give you a multitude of choices. Time settings allow you to view the entire history or specific periods of time, using different granularities as the time period changes. You can generate a line chart, mountain chart, candlestick chart or bar chart. The scale of the graph can be based upon the actual numbers or percentage changes. Because of the long histories that are involved, log graphs are provided to analyze the subtle changes that occur in the distant past.

Graphs can be adjusted for a number of different factors that influence a stock or index. Not only can individual stocks be split adjusted for stock splits, dividends and other changes, but economic and financial series can be adjusted for changes that have occurred in the past. GFD keeps all data for stocks, economic and financial data in their original values. GDP data, monetary aggregates or exchange rates can all be adjusted to create a continuous series by using our special tools, or the data can be graphed using the original values. The graphs also allow you to convert the data into another currency or to adjust for inflation.

The graphs provide extensive comparison tools to measure the relative performance of two indicators. You can choose one or several indicators for your comparisons and choose a single scale or different scale for the two variables. Complex graphing options include dividing one series by another (Government Debt divided by GDP) to show the relative performance of the two data series against each other as well as subtracting two series (LIBOR minus treasury bills to measure the TED spread).

Technical Indicators are also available for further analysis. Multiple moving averages of your choosing, the rate of change, MACD and others can be added to the graph quickly and easily.

Global Financial Data’s graphing tools provide the tools that are needed to analyze our unique, long-term data sets.
