Point and Figure Chart

smlpntnfig.gifPoint and Figure charts have no reference to time movement; rather these charts are generated solely in reference to price movement to isolate trends in any time frame.

A series of X's define an uptrend whilst a series of 0's mark a downtrend. When the trend changes from one swing to another a new column is created.

For more information refer to Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by John J. Murphy.
