With all my recent focus on reporting and visualization, you might think that I have the investments all figured out. Unfortunately, that is not the case, and I will resume more standard investment and systems posts soon. I did want to share what I think are two more beautiful Growth of a $1 visualizations. Although my lattice code is far from tight, I think the result is fairly good using and modifying some of the Economist style graphs offered in latticeExtra.
With a little modification, the chart.CumReturns from PerformanceAnalytics can also look very similar. I will let you choose your favorite. However, the lattice version will much more likely appear in my reports.
Nice post. You can do the same using ggplot2 with fewer lines of code. Here is a gist with the code. https://gist.github.com/1760199ReplyDelete
