This is a great forum, let me first commend you on the service you provide.

I am stuck on a problem which I cannot solve (if it's even possible) and I cannot find anything similar through the search function here.

I am trying to create a chart with three different scales, which is probably best explained with a "for instance". I would like to chart a stock index price against two other variables. For one of the variables, I would like it plotted against price, which is easy enough to do with a secondary axis. Time is the x-axis. So far so good. But the other variable I would like plotted beneath both, on a separate scale.

Is this possible within Excel?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Don't think you can do 3 y-axes on a 2-D chart - how are the variables related? A 3-D line or surface chart might fit the bill

I would like to compare an index (say the S&P 500 stock index), an indicator (say the put/call ratio), and then a stochastic oscillator of that indicator.

Here is something of an example:

This isn't exactly what I was looking to do, but close. Basically, is it possible to have multiple scales on the same axis?

If it is possible then its a bit outside my knowledge range - sorry. The other option would be to have separate charts but thats a bit more messy
