Not possible with standard features.

You need a custom indicator to do that.

How can I do a custom indicator for the logarithmic? I have no idea how to do it! And the link says nothing about logarithmic, says just about custom indicator. Thank you so much!

You should learn (a lot of resources on this site), or ask someone to code it for you.

You have to create your own (offline) chart - like a Renko-Chart. I'd suggest you to start from there.

Why do you need a logarithmic scale? Another experiment?

The question was about MT5, you can't create offline chart.

Is the correct Scale! I don't have a very good english, but I will try to explain. The arithmetic scale represents the same difference between 1 and 2, and 10 to 11. But, in the first case you have 100% and the second just 10%. It may not be represent like the same distance. It is just incorrect.

Are you sure you're talking about a log scale? Sounds more like a normalized scale...? Either way, you can't get it on the main chart, only in an indicator subwindow where you can programmatically change the scale of whatever it is you are plotting
