History - Forecast

Within financial modelling, to perform deeper analysis, you need to be able to see the difference between what has been and what is forecast.

RitchViewer Smart Charts automatically analyses the column labels and row headers. It then separates the data allowing visual interpretation between historic and forecast periods. The chart below highlights the insights that can be gained. We not only see the absolute value dipping in the start of the forecast space, but as this is balance sheet data, we also see from the line chart how the historic & forecast values relate to Total Assets. In the end, the rising absolute value in the Analyst's forecast appears to maintain at around 6% of Total Assets. 

Imagine the chart without the separation, would there be any visible Insights?
