Readers are invited to post their favorite charts from 2010 in the comments. Instructions are given at the end of this post.

Within a week or two TheOilDrum will host an open thread that will enable discussion of the charts posted, but today is New Year, discipline please - charts only. Thank you - and hopefully a happy 2011 to one and all.
