This post is a follow-on to explain how to correct old price data that may contain errors from back before the latest release. Note that stocks with weekly data in the database have the suffix "-W" tacked onto the symbol in the "Stock Symbol" dropdown. Similarly, stocks with monthly data in the database have the suffix "-M" tacked onto the symbol.
Even if you are not sure if you have erroneous data, it is easy to just get rid of it and get fresh data. Here are the steps to take:
- Select the stock or ETF you wish to fix and click the "Search Database" button
- If the chart is displayed, click the Exit button at the top right corner of the chart
- Click the garbage can icon on the toolbar. This is the one where the tool-tip says "Delete bulk data"
- In the form that pops up, click the checkbox titled "Delete all Price data for this symbol"
- When the form disappears, just click the "Load Data from Yahoo!" button.
By the way, you may not know that moving averages are handled somewhat differently for daily versus weekly versus monthly data. Here is a breakdown:
- For daily data, we plot 20-day and 50-day moving averages
- For weekly data, we plot 10-week and 40-week moving averages
- For monthly data, we plot 6-month and 12-month moving averages
