Very informative article)


I like the example, however I would have liked your version a lot more if you would not have cut off the axis.
It makes the weakening appear even stronger than it is in reality, a tool usually used to dramatise data instead of clarify it. The weakening was 'just' about 60-70% not the 90+% it appears from your chart ( just looking at the chart, not the figures)
I enjoy your blog a lot however! Cheers
