How do you plot multiple scatter plots on the same graph?

Hi,

 

I am using proc gplot.

I have 5 stocks, each has a price on January 1st, 2010, and October 14th, 2014. I know I can use proc sort to sort by date, amd use Stocprice*Date, for the graph, and also connect the dots using interpol=join. How do I plot the prices at the two time points for each stock, all on the same graph? 

 

This is an exercise. Later I need to graph many more than 2 dates. But to learn, I want to start with the two dates above.

 

Thanks for your help!

Don't use GPLOT, use SGPLOT instead. 

GPLOT is quite outdated and the graphics quality and options in SG are much, much better. And it's easier to code.
