move6969,

<<<Okay, I'm buying $500 worth of stocks every month but the buying price changes each time... my question: in adding my new purchase each month, do I have to show on my portfolio that a bough a certain amt of shares at a certain price? I'm assuming yes, but all those enteries will create a long column, right? Is there another way entering new purchases? It just dawned on me that my portfolio is not calculating my IRR or annuaized rate correctly. Any suggestions? >>>

Enter your purchase each month. When you are viewing your portfolio, "By Ticker" (default) will consolidate your entries by ticker. "By Trade Lot" will show your individual transations. You can switch between the two by selecting the option next to "display mode" at the bottom of the portfolio screen.

Can you please let me know how your annualized rate is incorrect?
