How do you change the Scale on Security/Price History graphs

I have many Securities and they all graph nicely except one. The Value and Average Cost per share varies between $6 - $13 yet the graph (see attached) has a scale of $0-700 resulting in an almost straight line along the base line.

    I'd review the price history data for an anomaly.  You might be able to narrow down the spot by reducing the time frame.  In that direction, does the 1-year, or other standard time frames also show that scale?

    Hi q-lurker and thanks for the swift response. I had already checked the prices for any 'fat finger' errors and found all in range $6 - $13. Your second suggestion showed some success - YEAR and longer shows the flat line and a scale of 0-700, YEAR TO DATE showed a decent graph with a Scale of 0-6 :) After that it was a matter of setting earlier and earlier CUSTOM DATES until I saw a spike ($607) on the DAY HIGH which should have been $6.07. :#

    A lesson for all there, it's not just the Price that sets the chart Scale, the Daily Hi does too.

    Grateful thanks
    ;)

    IIRC, the hi/lo data only plot for time periods up to a year. But clearly all the data can be a factor for the scale.
