Did you think about it?

Length mathematically is square root from sum of squared x and y differences,

```
length = sqrt( (x2-x1)^2 - (y2-y1)^2 );
```

But if you thought about it a little you would quickly understand that you can't calculate "length" because X and Y axes are NOT using same "unit".

X axis is TIME, Y axis is PRICE. You can't simply discard units and time is NOT price.
