This method remains one of the best for those who want to learn how the market is trending.
  3. 3. • Point and Figure Chart Benefits Just like the online real time forex trading charts, there are a number of benefits which point and figure charting offers.• This method of trend analysis does not have an occurrence time because both axes of the chart are price dependent.
  4. 4. • Here are some of the major advantages of using point and figure charting technique of trend analysis.

  9. 9. Using the Trend to Trade profitably
  10. 10. • After the trend is generated, forex trader may still opt to trade against it. This is the scenario when the signal isnt in agreement with the underlying trend. There is high probability when you trade following the patterns produced by the underlying trend. To do an assessment of a bullish market, a forex trader should draw a line upwards at the angle of 45 degree starting from the point the previous low was last recorded. Any signal above this point would be ignored and buy signals can be taken.
  11. 11. • However, if you want to access a bearish market, you will have to draw a line at 45 degrees going downwards from the last preceding high point.• Any signal that asks you to buy which is above the line you have drawn should be ignored. Any available sell signals can be traded on. Traders should be keen to detail when doing this.
  12. 12. • If you are a forex trader and trades on the Metatrader 4 trading platform, you will not have access to point and figure charting because it does not comes within the standard charting package. You can gain access to point and figure charting by downloading the mt4 point and figure chart indicator here.
