I keep seeing these charts with a non-logarithmic linear


I think it’s misleading and (half-)logarithmic is clearly better.

Make a statistics whether funds of companies that make

logarithmic charts perform better …

I second this. Without y axis being on log scale, you basically cannot evaluate a strategy. Please add an option to make the y axis logarithmic. That way one can immediately see a strategies performance over time. Otherwise the recent returns make it impossible to discern earlier performance.

Bumping this. Is there a good reason why hypothetical performance equity curves are shown in linear rather than logarithmic? The longer a strategy is around and performing well, the larger the drawdowns will appear. When in reality those drawdowns on a % basis could be well within the historical norms. It would be great to get an understanding on why a linear y axis is used.
