Equity Chart scaling
This is a Feature Request with 5 votes

Request to choose, whether an Equity Chart will be shown in logarithmic or linear scale. Would make sense, specially for a long term equity curves when position size is driven in percentage.
Is this feasible?

Yes this is doable, and it looks like it will get into the dev cycle rather quickly with these votes!

+1 Glad, I so prefer log scale, ever so much easier to compare long-term performance against a benchmark by just looking at the slopes of the equity curves, no matter how big the earlier out- or under-performance was.

Log scale equity curve shaping up for Q181

Nice, and good example. On linear scale the difference in equity would make the strategy look like it's skyrocketing relative to the benchmark the past 10 years instead of just staying about even with it (same slope). Looking forward to 181.
