The Wall Street Journal (2008-10-23) does it right. Nothing chopped off. The Royal Bank of Scotland in free fall. Nearly 14 %. You see it. The disaster as long as the column wide.
In the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ, 2008-10-23) 29 out of 50 bars for the Stoxx index end trembling in haze.
The reason: To spare nervous investors a lot of stress the SZ cuts everything above 5 %. Consequently, the 15.25 % lost by Repsol, too. Soothing. But nonsense.
Dear SZ, now that you are using beautiful graphical tables, why don’t you use them correctly?
