books on p & f : LUSENET : : One Thread

I stumbled upon your site following a thread and am very impressed. I understand x0 charts but do not know how to interpret the meaning. Please suggest a book that will explain the reversals and tails that are denoted on some of the charts Thank you.

I am in the midst of writing a tutorial series for my website that should get you a good handle on point and figure charting and it'll start coming on the website this weekend.

The best treatment of point and figure charting I have read is in:

Trading Systems and Methods (Wiley Trading Advantage Series) by Perry J. Kaufman It has an excellent chapter on point and figure charting.

Other books: Carroll Aby Point & Figure Charting : The Complete Guide

Michael Burke Point and Figure Construction and Formation Manual

Thomas J. Dorsey Point and Figure Charting : Essential Applications for Forecasting and Tracking Market Prices

Victor Devilliers The Point and Figure Method of Anticipating Stock Price (The 1935 classic tome on point and figure technique reprinted) Victor De Villiers, Owen Taylor, &Donald Mack De Villiers and Taylor on Point and Figure Charting

General technical analysis books like:

Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets : A Comprehensive Guide to Trading Methods and Applications by John J. Murphy. Has a good chapter on point and figure charting.

It is taking a little longer than I expected (took Sunday night off to see the Van Gogh show!). But I should have a basic tutorial on point and figure charting up on the website sometime this week.
