I am preparing a proof of concept for a user account dashboard to show positive and negative values within a graph of some sort.

My current solution is to use a pie chart with positive and negative values. I'm wondering if there are any other solutions better for the user? enter image description here

    You should define "better for the user". Who are those users and what do they do with the data?

it seems that you want people to be aware of the range of divergence.

A problem with pie charts in general is that users have a difficult time comparing values as part of circular shape. They also don't display divergence within a set.

Visualizing a range

Try using a Span Bar Chart if you want to show the range of both values.

If you have more than one pair of these values, you can stack them.
