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

Although P&F first appeared in charts in the 1930's, it is an often overlooked techique for analysing stocks and charts. 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.

Hang Seng Update; Can I play with Madness?

Hot off the press this morning and too quick for Stockcharts, the Hang Seng closed overnight at 21,091, so (on the 250x3 closing chart) we should see the 21,000 box get filled (which I have highlighted in green). That gives an upside price target of 24,250, based on the previous column of X's which reversed down at 20,720.

The 'shape' of the chart still suggests the HSI is rolling over and Christian (Perfectstockalert) said today he considers the HSI an easy short, so we'll see. Those active downside targets are still valid and (while i've not drawn it in) the index is approaching some short term minor resistance at 21,250.
