The weekend is nearly here. But before you switch off the screen and pursue a personal life of purpose, joy and inner fulfillment, there’s still time for the opposite: Alphaville’s Friday chart quiz.

So . . . what’s going on in each of the below charts? We’ve tried to calibrate difficulty to a level that only masters of Google image search pattern recognition will be able to correctly label all three, but guessing’s fine as well.

Line chart of  showing Second chart

Rules remain the same as in previous rounds. Email with your guesses and we’ll select the winner from the pool of correct entries that arrive by Monday. The lucky victor will walk away with a fetching, special edition “I ❤️ Charts” T-shirt designed by Louis, our artist-in-residence.

Please put QUIZ in the email subject line, otherwise we might miss your entry among the daily deluge of maintenance research and rentaquote spam from CFD brokers. Anyone that puts “please put QUIZ in the subject line” in the subject line will be disqualified.
