Ok, got a new one here...checked the manual, nothing there(that I found), so ask the pros:

* charting two ETFs; ETF#1 and ETF#2. All is well...single/individual charts or both on one chart...

* I'd like to create a chart that shows the ratio between the two - say ETF#1 divided by ETF#2

* Daily chart. Nothing super fancy, just one ETF divided by the other ETF.

* I've seen & tried the stuff about showing two charts on one, but in this case I want a new chart that has a custom calculation between the two. Simple division, but you get the point here.

Any way to do this?

You can use standard math formulas in the symbol fields throughout ProphetX. Thus, in a chart, you can enter the symbol as SPY/DIA for example directly into the symbol field. You can also enter this into a Quote Sheet which would then allow you link multiple formula symbols to a chart window.

In addition, you could enter a symbol such as SPY/DIA*100 (just and example) to take the value and multiple it by 100. I often do this in quote sheets or charts to calculate holdings in a position (AAPL-32.45)*100 for example would calculate your profit on 100 shares of AAPL purchased at $32.45.

I would suggest Searching ProphetX Help for "Formulas" then looking at the "Adding Symbols to Quote Windows" to see the various things you can do with symbols. Most of this works within charts as well.

Hope this helps.
