"The Definitive Guide to Point and Figure: A Comprehensive Guide to the Theory and Practical Use of the Point and Figure Charting Method"

has anyone received this book yet? Would it be worth to fork out another 40 odd quid or would Carroll Aby and Zeig's book suffice on this subject?

Hi bbjit,

I received my copy about a fortnight ago and I’ gradually working my way through it.

It’s obviously a seminal book and I expect that it will come to dominate the whole discussion of P&F charting and its various applications for years to come.

As you probably know, it comes highly recommended. For example, here’s what John Murphy had to say about it: “Rarely does a book live up to its claim of being the ‘definitive’ guide to something. Jeremy du Plessis’ new book lives up that claim and more. It’s almost impossible to imagine a more definitive treatment of point and figure charting. The author pays homage to its early development and the pioneers who first wrote about it. He gives extensive coverage to the original 1-point reversal method before moving on to the more modern methods. The subject is examined from every conceivable angle. I’m not aware of anyone who has even attempted to combine p&f charting with so many modern technical indicators. I expect that du Plessis’ book will not only become the definitive book on point and figure, but will also become a classic in the field of technical analysis.”

It’s a must have book, IMO!

HTH

Cheers

I have been reading my way through it but it could have been condensed into a much smaller book without losing anything. It is interesting none the less but a bit expensive because of the excess. It reminds me of when children write with big words to fill the page..

It's very good book based on the explanation in chapters: 2, 3 &4.
You can see Du Plesis really struggles in chapters 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9) since
these are his contributions, the other chapters are his compilation of
others' writing. Chapter 1 is an attempt to thicken the book by writing
long lines about the history of P&F.

Again, it's a good book but it's not solid like How I made $2,000,000 . . .

PS: While I respect John Murphy for his technical knowledge and his
contribution to the field of Technical Analysis, if you read Greg Morris' book
on candlestick and your respect of him will lessen greatly due to his
endorsement to a book that is very poorly written.

Cheers,
