JP Koning is interested in markets and art, thus explaining his predilection to create large displays of financial markets. He hopes you enjoy them as much as he enjoys making them.
The graphical display of data is one of the best tools for understanding the past, the present, and - hopefully - the future. Charts pictorialize everything from mass trends and breaks with the past to one time historical events and long periods of "normal" fluctuation. Without them it would be difficult to pick out patterns from the chaos.
