    Hi Stuart,

     The burndown chart is using a combination of the story points and the story status.  As the story's status gets changed to one of the Done states, the story is considered complete and it's points are removed from the burndown thereby bringing the burndown line closer to 0.  In your chart, it would seem as though all of the stories in the iteration either had the points set to 0, or were completed, or were moved out of the iteration on July 21st.

    Kind regards,
