Point & Figure Charting: A brief tutorial

Figure and Then Point Your Way to Major Profits by readtheticker at Safehaven.com:

Why use Point and Figure Charts?

Your stock went up $1.00 on Monday and continued down $.63 on Tuesday. It went back up $1.40 on Wednesday while falling down $.30 on Thursday. When you take a look at the intraday charts you see something frustrating and erratic. No price at which to sell is clear. If only there were a method to eliminate some of the noise perhaps the stock trend would be somewhat clearer. For this, many turn to point and figure charting, because it aids in reducing noise and elucidating market tendencies. Point and figure charting displays the interplay between these two fundamental forces of the marketplace, while at the same time not tracking relatively insignificant changes.
