Hi dentist007,
Always like a thread about P&F!
In your last post you say that the S&P is in a downtrend and, certainly, most people looking at the chart wouldn't argue with you about that. Can you outline how you define uptrend and downtrend in P&F terms please? I'm curious because the horizontal red line you've drawn at 1095.2 shows a breach of the double top (which is why you've drawn it, I presume) and makes the chart bullish, according to Jeremy du P'. In your view, what else needs to happen (if anything) to be able to say that the downtrend is over and that the index is now in an uptrend?
Cheers,
Tim.

a simple way is to draw a trendline after each signal.however,this would then crowd the
chart with too many lines.so then only draw the ones that the price came off a top/bottom.see the ones that were drawn in the chart below
the downtrend is over when there is a breach of the 45 degree trendline,usually with a signal at or near the trendline.so.yes the chart is bullish in a downtrend.bullish,being the lsat double-top signal

Re: learning to read price action with p/f charts

dentist007 started this thread we shall start at the very beginning.
the chart is plotting change in price.also renko,kagi,three line break,range charts are doing the same.each type has its own way of presenting the data visually
candlesticks,bar charts,line charts give the price change over a certain time frame
so,by looking at p/f we are studying the change in price,and therefore we can study price action a a guide for future price action
"X" records the unit of price that moves up one tick.this tick value could be £1,$1.50 cents or 1p,or 1 euro.the user fixes what price change he/she wants to look at
"O"records the unit of price when it moves down 1 tick

we look at the daily data plot for google.this chart is bearish
i shall explain more as we go .this is just a feel of what we are looking at

Re: learning to read price action with p/f charts

dentist007 started this thread price action ..we are looking at the current price and its relationship to previous prices
there is no time,volume,high ,low or close values.however,these can be superimposed on the chart
we can do this for any tradeable security,even property prices.we then look at the column characteristics and make certain deductions
