Dear all

Is there a way to draw a curved line in a graph in Stata, even manually ?

I want to draw a business cycle similar to the one in the attached graph. My aim is to draw the typical business cycle in a graph and then incorporate my actual data (that i have found to mimic the business cycle turning points)...The problem now is with drawing this business cycle.

I tried to draw a grpah in stata and then draw a curved line similar to the business cycle after opening the graph editor. Unfortunately, I found only straight lines available to be incorporated into the graph.

Thanks for your help
