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.

Gold - potential targets
There is a minor bullish support line to push through. The longer term line is still very much in tact and has not been challenged since early 2011.
The 25x3 chart shows just how parabolic gold has gone the last 2 years. The recent action has given a double bottom sell signal and an active target of 1,600. I haven't labelled it but there is also an unactivated target to the upside of 2,250 but we would need to see a move above 1,900 for this to be activated.
