Point and Figure Charts: Trend Reversals

Trend Reversal Patterns

Point and Figure Charts: Loss of Momentum

Here is a Point and Figure chart for Ford Motor Company. Note the marginal new highs at [1] and [2] before a strong trend reversal.

Point and Figure Charts: Marginal Higher Lows

In a down-trend, a series of higher lows indicate accumulation. Equal or rising highs are a further bullish sign.
