How to compare 4 previous fiscal year cost with current Fiscal year cost in line chart

How to compare previous Fiscal years cost with current fiscal year in a line chart? Fiscal year starts from Feb 01 and ends in jan 31. I have added 4 colums for this but it is taking long time to load as its direct query from bigquery and table is 600GB. I wanted to know optimized solution. also i chart without scroll bar. all years without days but with day level datapoints. like shown in 2nd chart. but with separate line for each Fiscal year and month starting from feb and ending in jan

Hi @Greg_Deckler Sorry, for confusing you. I am attaching sample dataset and pbx file describing what I am looking to acheive. basicaly I want the graph day by day interval and starting point Feb for all years. In below chart 1, data is plotted accurately day by day. but without Year in x-axis And  more optimized solution. so that Chart loads faster. Also, I should be able to filter on all FY years. Currently filter is not working for me.

Chart 2 


Problem with Chart 2 is I am not able to see complete Fiscal year (all month starting from Feb to jan) in single view. I don't want to scroll to see the comparision.
