  • oops AND [max(200, PPO Line(12,26,9)) < 1] and [min(200, PPO Line(12,26,9)) > -1]
  • AND [max(200, PPO Line(12,26,9))] < 1 and [min(200, PPO Line(12,26,9)) > -1]
  • If you click on the Check Syntax button it says There is a misplaced "and" keyword in your scan expression, near " and min(200, ppo line(12" On your last line you have two separate criteria using the AND but are treating them as one. They need to…
  • Using the Rank by function in a scan is a great method. If you already have a list, you can also use the Summary and Number in Sorted Order function, for different specified time periods, in the Summary list view for a generalized view of the "pe…
  • @markd I do make all my suggestions to StockCharts support. A recent one was about adding the Yield to the PnF chart price header. The yield shows on bar charts price header using the Full Quote option. It doesn't show on the PnF chart and no op…
  • Do you have any examples?
  • Thanks, I'm just starting to get the hang of the public list. If StockCharts ever allows annotation on PnF charts, that would be great. I will say, that if StockCharts added a portfolio management tool, I'd drop my Dorsey Wright membership as well…
  • Hi George, In several texts I've seen they talk about all different lengths being of interest to the point and figure study. Usually from 3 to 20. The ones that best define the trend will be "the best". Remember, most texts are written by and …
  • George, I maintain a public chartlist on StockCharts.com, in the point and figure section. It contains recent dynamic CSS patterns from the SML and MID pool. As the list is limited to 100 symbols, it's basically showing the last (approximately) 10…
  • To get to a listing of the "bullish" patterns, go to the Predefined Scans on StockCharts and scroll down to the P&F Patterns section https://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/SC.scan

  • I would suggest that you set up a 6 month, monthly chart to use on this review. Note that CLR.TO doesn't meet the "High" part of the scan. It appears that you are looking for monthly declining highs and monthly rising lows. The July High, for one…
  • JJJJ, to reply to your original question, ANY of the predefined bullish P&F patterns, except Bear Trap and Low Pole, are based on when a column of X's exceeds the prior column of X's by a box. A pattern is valid until another pattern comes abou…

  • I had some good "teachers" to assist my "education". I try to pass it on.
  • If I had to buy one book for learning the PnF methodology, it would be a DuPlessis book. He has several, each builds on the prior, so go for the latest version(s). When learning new things, remember, it takes both time and effort. It's like learn…
  • George, I use those three scales. High/Low on the full figure 1 box. Full figure is the default box size. I may also substitute a 3% x 1 or a 5% x 1 depending on the chart. Remember, the objective is to get a clear picture of the activity. …
  • Rank by [Fast Stoch %K(251,1)] could be an option. The Stochastic Oscillator measures the level of the close relative to the high-low range over the 251 days.
  • You can substitute for the 7xx column, 2 columns of X's that are 6 X's high, but the 2nd column must have a hgher bottom than the 1st. The columns need not be consecutive either.
  • The best PnF chart is the one that gives you the best information. They all have different strengths and weaknesses. Using Close ONLY is a great way to see a less noisy chart. It can give clues that might be obscured by the High/Low. The High/Lo…
  • Put Rank By [Chande Trend Meter] as the last line of your advanced filter / scan
  • Excellent points for all scan writers to remember on markd's response.
  • In a separate column you would add together the 50 days close (for a basic SMA) and divide the total by 50. I don't use the google sheets but let's say your close prices are in column C and column D has no data. In cell D 51 you would have a formu…
  • ah, didn't try spelling it out. Thank you gord.
  • You can also view the Price Relative (against anything) in candleglance view. So you can see the comparator visually on the candleglance view
  • In the search you can put in the terms that you are looking for. Both on this site and on StockCharts. The scan codes are often listed in those posts.
  • If you view your list in Candleglance view and then select the ROC period you are looking for. You should be able to SEE the ROC but it's not sortable. You can also view your list in summary view and pick different time periods, sort it that way, …

  • I must emphasis, that this is NOT a trading strategy. It's best to assemble the names, in a CSS ETF Portfolio of sorts. A good CSS name will allow a month or three for entry. Patience in stalking the names and understanding their DNA is a vital e…

  • Unfortunately, on StockCharts, there is no filter for 3 or more consecutive sell signals on a point and figure chart. A descending triple bottom would be 2 consecutive sell signals but not all multiple consecutive sell signals patterns will show a …

  • I think that SCTR is a good tool, as is the Chande Trend Meter (CTM). As with all tools, it's what you make of them. I think there was a recent blog post on using the right tools for the right job. The RS comparisons are good things to be aware o…

  • From reading the SC definitions, perhaps, Ease of Movement technical indicator, EMV in the technical scan workbench, might come closest to the original poster's question.
