It's just a very basic chart - no bells or whistles. As I said in my earlier post, the user has the facility to set the chart to a variety of scaling options, one of which is 'automatic scaling with square boxes'. Using the mouse wheel one can then zoom in and out and the boxes remain perfect squares. No adjusting of the chart is necessary. If you're viewing a chart - which let's say has a very large and dramatic move on it - with just one click of the mouse, you can toggle to manual scaling which will enable you to compress the chart down so you can see the whole move. Basically, anything you can think of - you can do with this program! And the range of indicators is second to none.
Tim.

Hi Dentist,

After our last discussion about PnF charts I decided to make use of the 2 weeks trial from Updata to test some PnF with it.

The problem I have with following Du Plessis strategy is that you are buying on a break out. After a breakout you often see a big retracement which not always will come back. What I found out is that you get whipsawed a lot if you keep your stop under the bottom of the pattern you used to enter the trade.

Maybe I am just missing the clue, or missing just that little point to make it profitable using PnF charts. I hope you can point me a little bit in the right direction?

I will post two charts from the same instrument only one with a .25 reversal and the other one from the same data with a .50 reversal. And I hope you are willing to point out a few trades you would have taken, and why you would have taken them?

Anyone else is also aloud to post their opinion
