For the most part, on daily charts going back a year or two, unless there was an enormous price change in this time span, use of a linear or arithmetic scale will be adequate for technical analysis purposes. I tend to use an arithmetic scale ... in perspective. If you have major gains in stocks, use of the log or semi-log scale will be particularly helpful in seeing which stocks have achieved the greatest returns.
