Welcome to EV's point and figures. This blog is dedicated to the use of point and figure charts in technical analysis.

A poor relation compared to line and bar charts and their range of momentum indicators. Yet few charts provide a clearer picture of the daily battle between bulls and bears for market control.

Like most methods, it should not be used in isolation. It should form part of an analysts 'tool box' and be used with other techniques to help form an overall view.

The charts that appear on this blog and any accompanying comments are purely for information purposes only - my own personal take on where the prices may be heading. They do not constitute investment advice.

Oh well, at least they are good at sport!

The 25x3 has far too much noise in it for my liking but the recent price action and upside target is the same
