    That's another benefit of the script. It takes all your money.

    What dates did you enter?

    By the way, it's not our individual returns. It's the TSP Fund returns.

    I like the START (COB)/END(COB). Unless I'm mistaken, this will show the returns using the exact prices you bought and sold.
    That's the issue. We look at prices as COB, but if a novice checks the dates they won't understand that 7/01 really means COB 6/30.

    The 100% thing will happen if you enter the wrong date, ie. May has 30 days and you put in 31.

    That's the issue. We look at prices as COB, but if a novice checks the dates they won't understand that 7/01 really means COB 6/30.
    I don't remember the exact ending date, but I plugged in 20140701 as the starting date. I tried it again and I'm getting much better results! I might have plugged in a date beyond todays for the ending. but I did this too and got a result that wasn't -100%.

    I see what you mean about not knowing the true date, but since we're talking about TSP transactions, it's the numbers we see on our TSP correspondence regarding the share prices on the date of the transfer, so that was my thinking.

    Maybe an info blurb stating what the date means?
