More Beautiful Growth of $1 Chart February 6, 2012 By (This article was first published on Timely Portfolio, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) 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.
