Both the nominal and inflation adjusted indexes are drawn on a landscape, Comparable Log Scale chart.

Bridge-CRB Futures Index, Bridge-CRB Raw Industrial Index, Goldman Commodity Spot Index and Reuter’s Commodity Index, 1970
All three indexes are drawn on a Comparable Log Scale chart, for easy comparison of their behavior over the last quarter century.
Dow Jones Futures Index, Dow Jones Spot Index and Futures relative to Spot, 1975

Bridge-CRB Futures Index, Bridge-CRB Raw Industrial Index and Futures relative to Raw, 1962

This ratio also tends to act as an economic indicator.
