Do you maybe know of a way I can get a crosshair in my graphs to make it easier to read the price at a coresponding date?

try using the "ginput" function. This function will give you the crosshairs that you are looking for. Further, if you use a script like the following

[x,y] = ginput();

then you can left-click on the chart and the x- and y-values will be saved in the "x" and "y" variables. You end the input by hitting the "Enter" key.

Hi, sorry for the long wait, but I am back to working on my project now, and hope to start trading very soon.

I used the following code to get the data from the plot with the data pointer:

function txt = myupdatefcn(empt, event_obj)
pos = get(event_obj, 'Position');
datevalue = dates(pos(1));

datecol = 1;
datevalue(:,datecol) = datevalue(:,datecol) + datenum('30-Dec-1899');

txt = {['Date:',datestr(datevalue,20)],['Value:',num2str(pos(2))]};
In main when using plot:
dcm_obj = datacursormode(figure(1)); %Data Cursor Updates!!
set(dcm_obj, 'UpdateFcn',@myupdatefcn);
dates are read from the excel file.

Hope this helps someone
