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.

VIX: which way next?

An interesting cross roads here for Vix. That target of 29 is active and the first target off the bottom of 20 given by the 3 x's (next to the number '7') was met. A move above 22 would give a triple top buy signal and make this target more compelling.

But see also, we now have resitance at 21.5 and an unactive target of 17 which will activate if the Vix falls below 19.5.

So the question is which will break first -the support at 20 or the resistance at 21.5? It's such a tight range, we will see very soon.
