I have the graph of the historical prices of a stock. I was wondering whether
it can be normalized. To clarify, I would like to see a graph with (1) to
(1) on the y axis and time on the xaxis. The trend line of the stock price
data would be considered zero and the moves above or below that line would be
depicted between 1 and 1.
If anyone knows whether there is a function/graph type in excel to perform
this task, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Normalize the data that feeds the chart. To normalize your data to MIN = 1
and MAX = 1, use a formula like this:
=2*(B2MIN(B$2:B$1000))/(MAX(B$2:B$1000)MIN(B$2:B$1000))1
where your data is in B2:B1000, and this formula is to normalize the first
point, in B2.

Thanks.
When I construct the graph, I have the xaxis labels (in this case, dates)
running through the middle of the chart. How do I move them to the bottom of
the chart?

When I create the chart, my xaxis labels (in this case, dates) run right
through the middle of the chart, along the zero line. How do I move them to
the bottom of the chart?

Double click the axis, and on the Patterns tab, choose the Low option for
axis tick labels.

how does one normalize two or more time series, so as to make them start with
ie 100, or for that mattern any other value?
I would like to see two time series starting from the same point, ie from
the first data point of the first series. On other words, i would like to
normalize one series with another.
How can it be done in excel?
thanks a lot

dejan 
The simplest way to normalize is to divide each value in a time series by
the starting value of the time series (and multiply by 100 if you want an
"index" instead of a percentage).
