The first value is the daily NAV (net asset value) and is represented by the blue line on the chart. The second value is the percent change of the NAV based on a selected timeframe and is represented by the purple line. A date selector can be found underneath the chart that allows for custom date ranges to be chosen. These charts also feature the ability to zoom into pre-determined time periods (Note: Selecting a zoom period will not change the previously selected date range).
