    When looking at the one year chart for stock symbol SRSR on Google Finance here, it doesn't look like the stock is trending up. The distance between the prices are evenly spaced on Google Finance.

    When using the charts on stockcharts.com, the distance between prices gets smaller as the price rises, and the same stock for the same one year period looks much more promising as seen here.

    Which sort of chart is more useful for gauging if a stock is in a trend, one where the price distances are the same as used in Google Finance or one that has them unequally spaced as used by stockcharts.com?
