Here's a quote from the Help:

Semi-Log - displays the price changes according to the relative value of these changes. This is especially useful to analyze charts which price has changed greatly during the time. For instance, the price change of 10% (for instance, from 10 to 11$) will occupy as much space on a chart as any other price change of 10% (for instance, from 90 to 99$).

How to set

1. Access the Format Symbol window.
