Thanks Scott. I've run your code and the graph is starting to take shape. I will read the sections of [G] you recommend. Looking at the graph so far my main issues will be:

1. How to make the line style for the "regime switching" regression the same. At the moment it is solid in the positive sloping region and dashed in the negative.

2. At the moment the graph produces 4 legend entries. I will want to reduce these to just two. I expect the only tricky one will be preventing the RW regression showing up twice as it does now.

But I should do some reading first myself :-) Thanks again.

The basic graph can be made up two commands: -twoway function- and -twoway--

scatter-

twoway function y = 0.35299 + 0.692*x, range(0 .461) || /// function y = 0.96888 - 0.644*x, range(.461 1) || /// function y = 0.316 + 1.248*x - 1.301*x^2 , range(0 1) ///

|| scatter q erc

For more info see

[G] graph twoway function

[G] graph twoway qfit

[G] graph twoway lfit

[G] graph twoway scatter

I would also recommend "A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics"

(http://www.stata-press.com/books/vgsg.html)

The graph could refined by changing the line color, marker style, the

legend, ....

Hope this helps,

Scott

I've looked at the Users/Getting Started Guides and I'm okay with the basics. However, I'm having trouble making the step to more advanced graphs. I have access to the Graphics Manual, but it's more of a reference than an guide. I'll get it with time, but I'm hoping to get up to speed with graphs reasonably quickly. Would anyone be willing to show me how to use STATA to create the graph at the link given below? I realize this might be an unreasonable request. If so, no worries, just ignore me. But if anyone could help me out, I'd be grateful. The graph is reasonably complex so examining the code needed to produce it will teach me a lot in a short period of time. The example graph is available at: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~chooper/stata/portfolio_plot.pdf The data used to generate the plot is available at: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~chooper/stata/testdata.dta The x-axis variable is "erc", the y-axis variable is "q" The line labeled Quadratic regression is the function: f(x) = 0.316 + 1.248*x - 1.301*x**2 (0 <= x <= 1) The line labeled Regime Switching regression is the function: | 0.35299 + 0.692*x if 0 <= x <= 0.461 g(x) = | | 0.96888 - 0.644*x if 0.461 < x <= 1 Despite the appearance of the pdf I want the plot to be in black and white. If it matters, I will be saving the graph as a png file for importing into a LaTeX document. (I use pdflatex so eps files won't work without conversion.) If you read this far then thanks! I hope you can help me out.
