I recently added the symbol XLG (SP500 top 50) to investigate using it for my portfolio. This particular symbol has had some recent changes that I believe should affect the adjusted close value stored in the _XLG file. Three changes in particular:
1. 2023-7-17 there was a reverse 10/1 split
2. 2023-6-20 dividend, $0.93623 (before the split)
3. 2023-3-20 dividend, $0.97573 (before the split)
Going backwards in time the data file _XLG handles the 10/1 split just fine for the closing price. The 2023-6-20 dividend looks correctly handled as well since I believe the stated value would be affected by the 10/1 split (0.93623/10). The 2023-3-20 dividend looks like it is the full amount and not adjusted by the 10/1 split, yet the close price is adjusted for the 10/1 split. So the 2023-3-20 dividend has a large effect on closing price.
This is just based on my looking at raw data from EOD, the _XLG, and a charting tool I use. So please help me understand if I do not have this correct. Thanks.09/08/2023 at 2:22 pm #85117
I’m just following up on this to make sure there is not a problem with the way the split is handled for historical data. I have a copy of the data file that I can send along if that helps. Thanks.09/11/2023 at 10:01 am #85119Patrick @ Logical-InvestKeymaster
Our data providers figure out adjustments. XLG is not a component of any of our standard strategies, but we have asked EOD to take a look at the dividend data you provided. In the mean time, you may want to try using Tiingo for XLG data.09/11/2023 at 3:02 pm #85121
Thanks for the tip on Tiingo, they appear to have the correct adjusted close values. And thanks for passing along the issue to EOD. I wasn’t sure how the value was calculated in the _XLG file since the adjusted close is not available via the free EOD download.09/12/2023 at 8:42 am #85122Frank1 GrossmannKeymaster
EOD has finally also updated XLG
