STA Monthly Meeting October 2008 Swing charts and the test of time

Marc’s book on swing trading is devoted mainly to the use of point & figure charts and swing charts. Marc has introduced a subset of rules which make pioneering alterations to the swing charts proposed by WD Gann. The modifications are intended to improve risk/reward for traders and investors but also to make trend definition more accurate.

In this talk Marc examines how swing charts have stood the test of time since his last talk to the Society in May 2004.

STA Monthly Meeting May 2004 Swing Charting

WD Gann’s swing chart looks like the ideal chart for swing trading, but the stop losses required are so huge that some modifications are necessary. Marc will talk about the modifications he has made to the Gann swing chart and show how essential it is either to draw the swing chart or visualise it on the chart. Marc will demonstrate how the modified swing chart is ideal not only for trend definition of the market as a whole, but also as practical trading tool.
