vtrader. the charts have some qualities i wouldn't mind seeing at oanda, the high/low lines in particular. The connection on the demo drops alot, so the alerts aren't reliable.

Surrender to the reality that volatility exists, or volatility will introduce you to the reality that surrender exists.

For free Live Point and Figure Charting I use the one from Dukascopy:

For a tutorial on Point and Figure charting try the PnF University by Dorsey Wright and Associates:

Point and figure charts

xlin,

I use Point and Figure for a better picture of support and resistance areas particularly when price is in a consolidation.

The area above the rows of X's is resistance and below the O's is support. Once a new X or O is formed above or below the previous row that signals a breakout and I place a trade in the direction of the break.

As far as the settings go it depends on the time frame you trade. I am a short term trader looking at 5,15, and 30min charts. I trade only the EUR/USD pair. On the Dukascopy Point and Figure chart I set the chart to display 10min data with 6 pip 3 box reversal (6,3).

It is recommended to play with the setting to see which looks best when plotting PnF for the time frame and currency pair you are comfortable trading.


Hope this helps!
