I always find these graphs a bit misleading because a 100% increase balances with a 50% decrease. It would be nice to have a graph that was symmetrical about 0 in the case of zero return over time but it probably isn't possible.

A logarithmic scale on the vertical axis would do what you want. I think you can make a case for both ways of presenting the data though.
