|Introduction to the Bull and Bears Spreadsheet.|
See this page for what and why:
Daily uses a recent history model to look at highs and lows using googlefinance().
The problem is that I need to manually set "final/official" highs/lows, otherwise the limited (60 days) look back will eventually fill up.
Secondly, due to the fact that if a high is set on a date,
I still need to manually verify that low after the high is set since googlefinance does not provide timestamps for the daily high and low.
By default for Intraday lows on days with a new high, the low of the day equals the closing
A manual review may change the result, but closing is a good default start and shouldn't be too confusing.
For Closing lows, on days with a new high, high=low for that day by definition since we only have one reading per day.
These are the messy tabs that create the history, data points, CPI adjustments and documents my setting for each Secular period.
Note, currently these tabs are clones of each other with the only difference being the intraday vs. close setting in cell A47 and the filter on Column C
[Intraday|Closing] Real Index Report
These are the summary reports taking data from the detailed bull-bear tabs and the Daily to present in a tabular form.
Note, currently these tabs are clones of each other with the only difference being what tab they reference.
[Intraday|Closing] Real Index Chart
These are the graphical charts used to show the history.
|This tab creates a history of the CPI-U for doing an inflation adjustment against the index. The logic is overkill for this spreadsheet, but I stole it from another project.|

Updated Daily to a much simpler model that uses long history. Should be faster/more reliable queries to google service.
Fixed error in CPI-U calculation for each month when new data is not available.
Initial Release baseline, it was in work and on the site since the 1st though. I consider it stable now.
