•The dollar index continues to remain firmly bullish on the daily chart, moving higher and breaking above the 81 region, as the currency of first reserve continues to strengthen following the U.S. election.
•This firm move higher for the U.S. dollar has been accompanied by sustained buying volume on both the daily and the three day chart, which have both provided additional momentum to the move higher, following the key breakout from the sideways congestion created during September and October, which saw the index trade in a narrow range.
•This platform of support is now providing the necessary springboard, and with the Hawkeye Heatmap now firmly green, the U.S. dollar looks set to continue higher in the short to medium term.
•Should the three day trend also transition through to bullish in due course, then we can expect to see the index climb to test the 83.00 region and beyond with consequent weakness across the major currency pairs, along with commodities. [Written by forexpros]

Interesting re this chart, I was looking at it on StockCharts earlier this morning and wondering if it was about to start to move higher.
I use PnF charts to help with Forex trading as part of my strategy. You can go through the process of using indicators and the like on your platforms but I simply use the Index on Stockchart.com and plot them there. If you print it out you can just manually add in the Xs or Os during the off hours of the New York Martket. I had to do this as I am using ThinkorSwim and they lack any PnF plotting, though I have asked. But it is minimal work when you consider the amount that Stockcharts already does for you. The price differences between the Index and the forex product is not important for my analysis. The index is also in large amounts than the product; You just have to move the decimal over in your mind.
Here is an example of what I use frequently:
GBP/USD: Use $XBP and a set the scaling method as USER DEFINED. That will allow you to change the interval. I use a box size of 0.1 which would correspond to 10 pips. You can't go smaller than 0.01 box size, btw.
For other Major currencies you can use the following Indexes:
EUR/USD: $XEU (or "FXE")
If you want to trade futures look there are more indexes for these.
I am not a fan of using these charts intraday (or PnFs intraday.)
Others may disagree.
I prefer to use P&F on a daily basis although I have attempted, in the past, to use it on 60 minute charts...
My thinking now is that daily and 240 minute charts are the right ones for me to use because I seem to do better with those time frames.
You are quite right to adjust the parameters on StockCharts.com to get the look that you like IMO.
how many columns of X AND O do you get on a daily basis ? I know pnf does not operate according to time but when I look at your charts there seem to be a lot of movement on them even when the boxes are more than 10.thanks
I thought the whole point of PnF was there is no time frame. I have just started to look into websites that offer PnF and they all seem to require a time frame setting 5min hourly daily etc. And then the charts seem to look different. If a PnF chart is a 1 pip box size and 10 pip reversal I don't understand why they are asking me for a time setting? Could you explain please?

whats the difference of using pnf 10 ,3 on a 1 min chart or a daily ?
Actually that is what I did, Ive put a 10 box size 2 reversal on a one minute and on a daily chart, what happened is that on daily chart the boxes never reverse at the correct number (in this case 2) as they do on the one minute.In fact they go way past the mark so i was wondering if there was a limit to the size of the box according to the timeframe.Hope you understand better what i mean .

The program is dead, I think so ...
Hello guys. I loke the P&F charts!
I posted this to another thread but youmay be more interested. Here it is:
There are many ways of representation of Volume, Price and Time. I am looking to check a Tape Reading Chart in live. For the ones do not know what that is, here is an attachmet to study. Like I hinted above, its purpose is the same as all the nice indicators developed by you fellow traders. Yet, it does look different.
It looks like a P&F chart. It is a Break out chart, so one has to have a variable with a pre-determined (and adjustable) price range, which must be traded through in order to allow the indicator to plot an entry.
Instead of "X" or "O" there are however Volume figures plotted in numbers (in thousends or hundreds or whatever appropriate for the timeframe).
Also, different from the traditional construction of the P&F chart in that, it must plot zero values in case a gap happens. So there are either numbers or zero values.
As an additional difference, the next column starts only if the place above or bellow the current bar, where the new entry would come, is already filled.
So the time is not very vell registered here, only the price and the traded V at the set price levels. The representation of time would be a different color or indication for the Volume figure at every, say, 30 minutes or hour or whatever the user sees fit. (The figures are circled on the attachment.)
And we all own with thank and respect to Mr. Wyckoff for his chart by the way. This method is old but there is not so much new in the markest. Nothing new in human nature anyway.
Since the time of Mr. Wyckoff the markets grew and have become somewhat more hectic. Broader public, more funds, the f...ing high frequncy sh.t.
For example, the DJ has a far higher value since the 19-es, though the same number of companies construct it. Hmm, perhaps the USD inflated like crazy in the last times? Where does it end? Will we do the same in 100 years only with different figures? S&P will trade at some idiot 5000 points? So there is no more value whatever, only inflating money. Not a bad idea to pile up with gold, silver, land, or whatever real assets after all..... Even with water!
So is any skillful madam/gent interrested to code this? Could be a usefull addition to the set of tools.
Anyway, I wish you good trading all
To follow up wit my previous post I would like to point out that the cute P&F is the best sort of figure chart I have seen on MT4 so far. It is very friendly and pleasing to the eye. It should be as we look the charts quite often…
One point I did notice, though, is that the 1 reversal entries do not look good. Better said, Wyckoff also did use 1 reversal figure charts but the standard construction of such a chart is so, that no 1 point entry happens. In doing so, one must add another entry to the same column.
and not like this:
Anyway, just my point. Very useful tool non the less.
Specimen of Tape Reading Chart.pdf
Wycoff traded Stocks, not Forex. His point and figure charts were for the top stocks and group stocks and individual stocks. Wycoff explained that point and figure charts show how far price might go, and vertical charts or line charts are used to see which way the trend is headed. You use point and figure to see how far the price will go, then you use the line charts or vertical charts to spot the trend and place your stops and profit targets. Don't know if it will work with Forex, it should I would think, but I believe Forex to be a bit different than stocks. for one thing you don't have top groups to pick from, other than time frames or volatility. You have your majors and crosses, but that isn't like picking the top 500 stocks. I use Wycoff methods for spotting supply and demand, absortion, springs, accumulation, distribution and upthrusts, it is very helpful in that way with Forex.
is there any software that allow you to do backtesting in P&F charts? I have forextester but it doesn't have the option of P&F
also I have a simple system that I try to backtest bar-by-bar but is not the same
any advice would be appreciate
You might have a look at Neoticker.
