VAMI chart

The chart reflects the growth of a hypothetical $1,000 in a given investment over time or it reflects the growth of minimum investment. The index is equal to $1,000/min. investment at inception. Subsequent month-end values are calculated by multiplying the previous month’s VAMI index by 1 plus the current month rate of return.

The VAMI chart always starts a month before the first entered month. Without this rule we wouldn’t be able to calculate VAMI if only data for a single month are available.

  • It is possible to show a second data series in the form of bars.
  • This chart can visually separate backtested and live data. For more information please see how to set up live a trading period in this topic.
