If you want to see how your investment performance is doing compared to an index, you can easily add an index to your investment’s performance graph.
To do this, select the index you want to compare, by clicking on the Indexes drop down menu link in the upper left hand corner of the performance graph.
When you click on the Indexes drop down menu link, you can choose from a list of indexes.
Choose the Dow Jones index, the Nasdaq index or the S&P 500 index. You can choose one index or multiple indexes. When you choose an index, you will see a checkbox next to the index.
Once an index is chosen, you will see the index in your performance graph and how it compares to your investment’s performance.
To remove an index, click on the Indexes drop down link and select the index again. This will remove the checkbox from the index menu item and remove the index from your performance graph.
You can also compare your account/portfolio performance to an index. To do this, go to the Portfolio Analysis page by choosing the Tools menu at the top and selecting Analyze Portfolio from the drop down menu. From the Portfolio Analysis page, click the Indexes link above the performance graph and choose the index or indexes you want to compare.
