    The date the $10,000 is assumed invested may not be the date of the first plot point.  For example, if we're viewing the default last 12 months chart today (4/2/2021), the $10,000 would be invested on 4/3/2020 and the first plot point would be on 4/30/2020 (the end of the month).  Last year, the market indices rebounded sharply during that period.  For example, from 4/3/2020 to 4/30/2020 the S&P 500 index rose 17%.
