Between January 31, 1934 And Febuary 1, 1934, The Gold Stock Was Increased 2.98 Billion Dollars Of Which 2.81 Billion Dollars Was The Increment Resulting From Reduction In The Weight Of The Gold Dollar And The Remainder Was Gold Which Had Been Purchased By The Treasury Previously, But Not Added To The Gold Stock.

Use a formula to modify and combine data series into a single line. For example, invert an exchange rate a by using formula 1/a, or calculate the spread between 2 interest rates a and b by using formula a - b.

Use the assigned data series variables above (e.g. a, b, ...) together with operators {+, -, *, /, ^}, braces {(,)}, and constants {e.g. 2, 1.5} to create your own formula {e.g. 1/a, a-b, (a+b)/2, (a/(a+b+c))*100}. The default formula 'a' displays only the first data series added to this line. You may also add data series to this line before entering a formula.
