I have a graph and it doesn't start at zero. How do I add the symbol (my vague description is mentioned in the title) to the y axis of the graph? If it helps, my graph is a scatterplot.

It helps if your file, code or something minimal was given here so that we don't need to find a proper example to replicate your problem. See for example this one to provide some data on the fly to your example : tex.stackexchange.com/questions/79177/… –  percusse Oct 27 '12 at 11:36

There's the key axis y discontinuity=<crunch|parallel|none> that will insert a symbol on your axis:


\begin{axis}[ymin=370,axis y discontinuity=crunch]
\addplot {rnd*200+400};
