Waterfall charts can give you insight into what is behind changes in total values between a a given starting portfolio and a given ending portfolio. The starting and ending portfolios are represented in the bars on the left and right of the chart, respectively. The floating bars between the portfolios indicate the value of the difference between them. We also have a video tutoral on waterfall charts here.
