How do I create charts that change source data automatically?

I am doing a research paper on stock market volatility. I want to
create a chart that lets the user customize the criteria for percentage
moves in the stock market. The distribution chart is a histogram of
shifts in the S&P 500 index. I want to create a chart where users can
specify what percentage change occured in the market, and what the
market did a specified amount of days after.

I would like to create 2 buttons, one which let's the viewer change the
percentage move in the market (from -10%,-9%...9%,10%), and one that
let's the viewer change the the number of days (1-30) following that
move to be displayed in the distribution.

For example, I would like to the user to be able to customize the chart
see the distribution of stock market moves 21 days after a 5% decline in
the market, and easily change the criteria to see the distribution of
market movements 5 days after a 2% increase. Changing these criteria
with buttons would automatically update the graph.

Any ideas how to do this:confused:
