    The split factor applies only if you have a stock that has a stock split and non-split adjusted historical prices. Thus, if your stock price is 50 and it has a 2/1 stock split and ends up at 26, you would enter a split factor of 2 in that month to account for the split. The index is whatever market index you use.
