    Point & Figure Charting


    Point & Figure Charting reduces the importance of time on a chart and instead focuses on price movements. Point & Figure charts are made up of X's and O's, X's being new highs and O's being new lows. There are two inputs to a Point & Figure chart:

    1. Box Size: The size of movement required to add an "X" or an "O". For example, a stock at a price of $20 may have a box size of $1. This means that an increase from $20.01 to a high of $21.34 means another "X" is added. If the high price only increased to $20.99, then another "X" is not added because the stock didn't close another box size ($1) more.
    2. Reversal Amount: The size of reversal before another column is added to a Point & Figure chart. To illustrate, if the reversal amount is $3, then the $20 stock would have to fall down to $17 before a new column (in this example of O's) would be started.

    One of the main uses for Point & Figure charts, and the one emphasized in this section, is that Point & Figure charts make it easier for traders to see classic chart patterns. In the chart below of the E-mini S&P 500 Future, the Point & Figure chart emphasized support and resistance lines as well as areas of price breakouts:

    Again, the Point & Figure chart makes it easy for traders to see the double bottom pattern below in the chart of the E-mini S&P 500 Futures contract:

    Step Charts-pointfigure2.gif


    The e-mini chart above illustrates the two bottoms of the double bottom pattern, as well as the confirmation line that is pierced, resulting in a buying opportunity.

    Point & Figure is a very unique way to plot market action. The strongsuit of Point & Figure charting is that it eliminates the element of time and focuses on what is truly important - price

    Moreover, it is necessary to compare indicators with the same input parameters. In your case, you are comparing the period(14) with pips(20).

    And please try to get the same picture like mine with your indicator.

    Renko Bar |Day Trading | What are Renko Bars | How do Renko Bars Work | Part 1

    Renko Bars can be viewed as merely a different way to reflect price on a chart; in my opinion, I feel they paint the clearest picture of price available.


    Here are my top 6 reasons of why I choose Renko Bars and charts:
    1. They REALLY help filter the noise
    2. They help smooth Indicators
    3. They can provide better entries
    4. They may help to provide smaller stops
    5. In my opinion they are just “cleaner”
    6. They help to filter noise and may help, keep us out of the chop.

    Renko chart: What kind of strategy fits it?

    Marcin Nowogórski
    Chief Strategy Officer w Comparic.pl

    My article about Renko Chart. Do you use it? Im wondering what kind of strategy you find useful for Renko charts. Breakout strategies seem natural here, but I might be wrong.

    Renko charts – trading based on volatility.
    To some traders "Renko" sounds like some exotic philosophy, while others have no idea what is it about. Actually, it's pretty simple and brilliant idea how to visualize price movement.
