Hey @fried.jd

The visualization looks great! You’ve made great usage of multiple line graphs to tell the story you want to tell.

Here’s a little bit of feedback:

The thing that sticks out most to me about the graph you chose is the spike around New Year’s. It’d be easier to make that the focus of the story you’re telling since that’s what people’s attention will immediately go towards.

If you wanted to go further, I’d say explore the reason why that New Year’s exchange rate exists and create a story around that. If you do choose to focus your story on that section of the graph maybe choose a different color line on the fourth graph perhaps in green.

Otherwise great work! Keep it up!

That makes sense- think I’ll try to build that out more.
Thanks for the encouragement!
