Re: point & figure charts

Got interested in point and figure charting a while back, and I have been using the method ever since. I love the way you can use it purely mechanically.

Bull's-eye broker is by far the best point and figure software and with a good price tag http://www.pointandfigure.com

They also have a free book on point and figure that I am reading http://book.pointandfigure.com

Re: point & figure charts

the ig charts are correctly calcualted.however, the problem is with the charts is that the plot area of the chart does not consider the aspect ratio of the "x" and " O " s.there is a simple way round that.it only means,that uneless the aspect ratio is correct,then you cannot plot 45 degree trendlines correctly
prorealtime have the same problem
if you send me a pm.i can go thru the ways of correcting the aspect ratio

Re: point & figure charts

hi dentist,
I've been trying to get ig to give me a readable p&f chart and would be interested in hearing your solution. i'm only discovering p&f at the moment, trying to get to grips with box sizes etc.
have you tried using ig charts for futures on a short (say 1/5/10 minute) time frame?
any advice on settings would be much appreciated

ig charts....
it finance provide the charting packeg.pretty good if you know what you are looking at
you need to resize the charts when they look out of sync.ie the"x and o" s are mishapen.u need decently formed x and o to put on 45 degree trendlines
try this out first
then match the box size to give a rough interpretation of a 15 min candle
let me know how you get on

Re: point & figure charts

i wondered about the shape of the the 'o' s, they were looking distinctly oval in some charts, i'll try it out in the next few days and let you know.

thanks for the tip

I use Sharescope...I am bit puzzled by what you say - but the p & f charts are not what it should be.

Could you explain more..??

Hi i am trying out the demo version of Bull's eye Broker. I am using it for viewing data from NSE(India). I am having trouble in viewing the charts. Since i have amibroker, I tried linking it with Bull's eye in the select data source option(Data- data wizard- "I use amibroker"). But none of the stock names appear (though i select "all stocks" option). Can anyone suggest what could be the problem ?

Curiously, Bull's eye did not ask the path to the folder where i am storing the amibroker data. Shouldn't it be asking ?

I tried to use the downloader which came with Bull's eye to download the free data from yahoo. It gave the message that download is over but the Bull's eye did not show any data.Is there any simple step that i am missing?

I don't find any forum or support link for Bull's Eye broker in their site. Have they stopped the support ?

Thanks for help

Thanks for your reply. Did you mean Direct data source ? I tried that too to set up amibroker as the data source (apart from selecting the same from data wizard). I deleted the sample data also now. Still does not work!
