Point-And-Figure Part III
Salepage : Point-And-Figure Part III
Wyckoff’s Law of Cause and Effect forms the foundation for his exceptional method of estimating price objectives using Point-and-Figure (P&F) charts. The underlying concept is deceptively simple, with the Cause equaling the horizontal P&F count in a trading range, which in turn generates an Effect or price target from the resulting trend. To obtain consistently reliable results with Wyckoff P&F charting, however, traders need a systematic approach, with guidelines that accommodate differences in trading range structures and timeframes.
We provided just such an approach, including some advanced and relatively new refinements, in our prior Point-and-Figure courses, which are among the most popular of all our on-demand courses. Point-and-Figure Part III, was developed in response to many student requests for additional applications of this remarkably versatile tool.
The course will include a review of some P&F fundamentals, followed by more advanced techniques.
Week #1: Point-and-Figure Foundations and More
During the first session, we will review and expand on the materials presented in our prior courses, including how to:
Construct Wyckoff P&F charts using the StockCharts.com platform.
Identify the correct count line in different trading range configurations (i.e., upsloping and down-sloping TRs as well as traditional horizontal consolidations).
Apply refined horizontal P&F count guidelines to project price target zones, including how and when it’s appropriate to re-do counts and sequentially incorporate P&F phases.
Determine when to use 1-box vs 3-box vs 5-box reversal techniques.
Create and properly employ modified counts (using average true range and user-defined as well as traditional box sizes) and different scaling.
Anticipate confirmation of projected price targets and resumption of a trend through stepping-stone counts.
Take counts and project downside targets during distributional trading ranges, including critical differences in counting conventions and trading tactics in relation to accumulation.
Contextualize Wyckoff’s Law of Cause and Effect to help you understand how and why this seemingly “magical” P&F technique produces such consistently accurate projections in any timeframe.
Week #2: Practical Applications in Multiple Timeframes
In the second session, we will apply the materials from Week #1 to illustrate:
The usefulness of intraday P&F counts in short-term swing trading and in reliably anticipating near-term price movement on longer timeframes.
Trading tactics throughout an entire trend based on long-term campaign counts.
Refining timing and trade management from swing P&F (confirming) counts.
Tape reading and trading off P&F charts – this is all-new content not available anywhere else, which should be particularly valuable for short-term traders.
Week #3: Advanced Point-and-Figure Techniques
In our Wyckoff Market Discussions, many students have asked about Bruce’s cutting-edge P&F analyses of individual securities and market breadth. In this session, we will present how to incorporate these methods into your trading. Specifically, we will demonstrate, step-by-step, how to:
Utilize P&F as a convincer strategy in assessing a security’s relative strength in relation to any other market, including its peers, sector, industry group and the overall market.
Apply and interpret percentage-scaled box sizes, which are particularly valuable in comparing multiple instruments.
Evaluate the overall status of any market using Bruce’s adaptation of the Bullish Percentage, an indicator based on P&F charts of the components of any index.
