Issue 29 – Logarithmic vs. Linear Charts


Why don’t my charts match yours?

That’s one of the most common questions I get after posting a few charts on Twitter.

Most often, it’s the difference between using logarithmic and linear charts, which is really just a difference in how the y-axis is calculated.

In today’s issue, we’ll deep-dive into the meaning of logarithmic and linear charts. I’ll also share which one I use for cryptos and why, and then we’ll finish up with a few charts.

Let’s get it!

What Are Logarithmic Charts?

The only difference between logarithmic and linear charts is how the price scale (y-axis) is calculated. Everything else is identical.

Logarithmic (log) charts use a percentage of change to calculate the price scale and plot data points.
