In P&F chart, For each price level, we should choose a suitable box size for it. Now I use metastock to read P&F chart but metastock only permit me choose only one type of box size for all price level. For example: if I choose box size is 2, all price level in P&F use box size 2, no matter the price level is 12000 or 12.

 

I am looking for a software which I can choose box size for each price level (excellent if It can set standard box size for each price level), Please kind tell existing the software like this or not. If it is existing please kindly tell me its name or share it with me.

 

Many many thanks for you help!

 

Bull's-Eye Broker is the one point and figure software I use, they have a very good means to define your own box size at different price levels. Like:

 

Price 0-10 use box size 0.5

Price 10-20 use box size 1

Price 20-40 use box size 2

 

or anything you can think of. Point and Figure charting software Bull's-Eye Broker

Firstly I am no P&F 'expert '(so take my comment with a pinch of sort) I do have a decent understanding of how and why you'd use P&F though.

 

I would guess the table is a 'rule of thumb'. Volatility is more important than the absolute value of the instrument (of course stuff that trades at 100 is going to have a wider range than stuff trades at 10).

 

As with all methods of sampling and displaying data it is more about what you want to 'capture' rather than a magic formula. What do you ne to see for the swings you are targeting.

 

For example on exactly the same instrument someone interested in capturing 5 point (just an example) swings that take an hour so to complete will use a different box size and reversal to someone wanting to capture 50 point swings (that might last 2 or 3 days) .

 

Fit the tool to task. You find a spanner to fit the bolt, you don't select a spanner and then go looking for a bolt that it fits.

Thanks Stock.Jock!

 

I take a look in your file, it is general count guide in Wyckoff method. My problem is how to use P&F to count target price following Wyckoff method ( one box reversal)

For those interested in software that will create PnF charts - I have been using NinjaTrader with success. You cannot input different box sizes at different price levels unless you code it yourself but the software is free until you trade live on it. You can get trials of live feeds with historical data (I got mine from Zen-Fire) so if you want to try PnF through time on the same instrument it is pretty easy to set up.

 

I have been using the Wyckoff Method and Market Profile to paper trade the S&P e-minis. I wonder if someone could give me some input on box sizes and reversal sizes. A tick on the ES is .25 points. There is a lot of volatility with the ES so my assumption is that a tick for a box size would be a big mistake. I have configured my chart for box size = 3 ticks and use both a 1 box and 3 box reversal. I'm not sure if there is a more precise way to filter out noise etc. I'm wondering if anyone looks at a 5 box reversal chart? All comments appreciated. Also if anyone successfully daytrades with these I'd like to hear about it.

YertleTurtle,

 

Nice set of charts you posted. I'm interested in the PnF charts that you make on NinjaTrader. I downloaded and installed it and I linked it to TD Ameritrade for my data stream. I see in the chart properties that the box size and reversal can be changed, but I'd like to get it to plot the Wyckoff PnF chart. Do you know if this chart code can be edited? Is there an editor in the program for it?

StockJock,

 

In NinjaTrader File-> New Chart then select the instrument you are interested in and hit New.

 

Under Period -> Type -> Point and Figure.

 

This should then open up Box Size and Reversal options.

 

I'm sure that PnF is native to NT 7 so make sure you downloaded 7. NT isn't intuitive and sometimes it just doesn't do what you want it to. There are also issues with data setup - some of their indicators only run on realtime data but this isn't true for PnF.

 

Also - even if you haven't purchased the software their support is pretty good. I switched from ThinkorSwim when I got interested in Wyckoff (thanks to your University) because they didn't have PnF but their software looks better and is much more intuitive. Let me know if I can be of any help.

 

Also - I'd recommend getting a free data trial from Zen-Fire as you can get historical data and download data for whatever instruments you are interested in as most of the data feeds don't support historical data.

Wyckoff used both 1 and 3 box reversal. In order to predict price move count the number of boxes across accumulation phase at a support/resistance level. Even if there is a gap during this phase this should also be counted. Take the count and multiply it by the box size. Take this result and multiply it by the reversal size (obviously if there is a 1 box reversal you don't need to do this). This is the approximate price move. Add or subtract this from the S/R level. Example:

 

5824004771_8cbf023dff.jpg

 

Note that this is a 3 box reversal chart and that all even columns would be better depicted as "O's". The number 50 here actually represent a price of 150. Wyckoff used both 1 and 3 box reversal charts and would calculate the price moves on both for confirmation. This estimation is meant as a rule of thumb and price will often move less or more.

What is the best US software for backtesting and scanning stocks for point and figure patterns?

 

any backtesting software that can backtest in ticks.

 

if you are thinking about scanning thousands of stocks in real time... good luck. The limitation is more on the datafeed and hardware speed, not software.

Hi, its been a while, I've kinda put this off, but just started reading again.

 

This is from Section 14M, page 8:

 

Suppose a stock were traded in at the rate of 2,000 shares a day for many days, within a range of 2 points. This would be merely a trader's market in that stock. But if it should break down through its former supporting line, and the volume should increase to 3,000 or 4,000 shares a day, this would be a relatively large change, indicating an increase in the supply sufficient to overcome the proportionately smaller demand. The volume of stock wanted by buyers may not have shrunk, but the increase in the quantity coming to market would be more than these buyers were able to absorb. So the price would decline, and the effect of its declining under these conditions would be to induce more people to sell, thereby adding to the supply.

 

Why wouldn't the price drop induce people to buy, when they see the lower prices as a bargain? How does this increase in volume differ from that of a selling climax? In both cases the price drops lower on large volume. But in a selling climax the recommendation is to go long. Where as in the paragraph above, it seems that Wyckoff is suggesting that prices will continue lower..

      Hey guys , what are the main things you look for to detect if the consolidation area is accumulating or distributing ? 
      1 ) I see springs in top , still markup happens and it becomes accumulation area and vice versa
      2) There is lots of volume absorption in support line and still markdown occurs.
      3) sometimes in market high / low it becomes re-accumulation  / re-distribution
      Is there any clear way to find it ?

      Hello everyone!
      I am an advanced trader, with many years of experience (about 15 years - 10 living exclusively from this)
      I am going to give you some tips that you must know:
      There are going to be many people who tell you that trade is easy, that with only crossiing a line  with another one you will win a lot of money.... and that´s not true.  No, Sir, reality is far away from that. Many people who start arrive here with the hope that someone "gives them" a free method, they watch youtube videos thinking that this will give them the "strategy" and in a few days they realize that it does not work for them - they lose money - and then They go looking for a new one ... and so on. YES, IT´S TRUE YOU EARN IN TRADING, A LOT. BUT THINK: for a few to win (10% + any BROKER) many others must lose (90% people). YOU MUST HAVE A MONEY MANAGMENT FORMULA ( you can email me) People study so many years to live on this, not because they are dumb, but to know what they do, when, and have absolute effectiveness. It´s very easy to get lost here: do not disperse, jumping from one to another strategy WILL NEVER give you money, it will only waste your time and make you nervous when trading. PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR METHOD CONSTANTLY : LOOOOSE ALWAYS.   If you have the knowledge to develop it, take your time and do it.  Always try it first on DEMO for at least 2 weeks! If not: search to buy a solid strategy (no you tube videos pleassse ! Avoid losing money! ) This is like any business, it requires some capital to start (capital = money in the broker + solid made /purchased strategy) If you are lost: I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO WASTE TIME IN YOUTUBE, JOIN PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A METHOD ... PLEASE !!!! DO NOT BUY 10 BAD AND CHEAP METHODS, SAVE MONEY AND BUY ONLY 1 BUT EXCLUSIVE AND MUST ALLWAYS HAVE SUPPORT !!!!!  Do not buy Signals! They never keep up with constant profits! One week will win and the next will lose. Nothing that does not depend absolutely on you will give you the money you are looking for. And if you do not have a strategy (made or purchased) do not even try PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: DO NOT USE REAL MONEY! AT LEAST 2 WEEK DEMO FREE HELP HERE!!!!!  IF YOU FOLLOW MY ADVICE YOU WILL BE PART OF THAT 10% WINNER, email me.
      Have a nice trading day

    • Good news is my posts no longer seem to need moderator approval! Beginning tomorrow, I will be day-trading two currency pairs: EUR/JPY and GBP/USD. I'll trade during the morning and afternoon hours, New York time.  I'll be using an Oanda "core pricing + commission" account. I plan to trade a "practice account" through the end of January, then a small "live" account beginning February. I've set my charts up to closely resemble the format popular in the RCRT thread (NinjaTrader + MetaTrader). My trading style will primarily consist of what I've learned from that thread. I'll track my performance in terms of R-multiples.  The purpose of this thread is just for a little fun with some bonus accountability. I've got nothing to sell/teach, and I will probably lose money! 😁

    • Date : 22nd January 2020. Bitcoin – Exposed to corrections; bias cautiously bullish 22nd January 2020. Bitcoin, Daily and Weekly For the past two days, Bitcoin has been consolidating gains seen during January in a  a safe haven play on rising concerns about the US-China trade war, geopolitical tensions and Iran sanctions, but also following the launch of options on the CME Globex. Bitcoin staged a stunning upside reversal around the $6,400- $6,800 support area a week ago, with the price surging back above the 200-day Simple Moving average and towards two-month highs. Currently however, sellers are pushing for a recoil below the 61.8% Fibonacci of $8,562 of the downleg from $9,904 to $6,407, a break of which could see the retest of the $8,148 barrier, which reflects the 50% Fibonacci level. Particularly if the 50% Fibonacci does not hold and sellers move below it, then the $8,000 number could come back into play. However, moving higher, above the psychological resistance at $9,000, could next captivate trader’s attention and trigger another bullish action towards $9,570 – $9,904, i.e. the October-November upswings. Still, with the RSI close to overbought waters,as the indicator moves softly towards its 70 overbought mark, downside corrections cannot be ruled out in the near term. On the contrary, MACD lines keep gaining ground in the positive territory. If MACD and RSI keep gaining ground in the positive territory, the price may continue to head higher.
