    Graph it in the largest possible window yu can, and the go to zoom in. place the curser over a point of interest, and the press enter until you can clearly see the features.

    Try the window

    Xmin=-6
    Xmax=6
    xscl=1
    Ymin=-100000
    Ymax=100000
    Yscl=10000

    Ymin and Ymax way too large ... results in hidden behavior.

    recommend Ymin = -200 and Ymax = 600.
