Point & Figure Charting or P&F
has been around for over 100 years. The earliest book on Point & Figure was written in 1898. De Villiers & Taylor in their 1993 book said P&F was over 60 years old then. In recent times, Jeremy du Plessis has made significant contribution to the world of Point & Figure.

One would expect that a theory that is 100+ years old would be well known and followed in Technical Analysis. However, except dedicated Technical Analysts, few in the public have benefited from its unique approach to price analysis.

Some of the the important aspects of P&F are:
  • It's unique & amazing ability to filter out noise in the continuous steam of price data and clearly show unambiguous Trends: Up, Down & Congestion.
  • No Time on its x-axis and hence focusing on the ONLY thing that matters: Price!
  • Ability to provide price targets, entry & exit levels.
The above 3 aspects make Point & Figure an approach to Technical Analysis in a class of its own!

Given these highly actionable traits of P&F Charting, BIC's Course on Point & Figure
course will take you all the way from the Basics of P&F to practical application of P&F on live up-to-date charts.
