"This book provides a number of new tools for P&F analysts and truly does bring this technique into the modern era." - Mike Carr, editor, MTA's newsletter 'Technically Speaking'
"Jeremy Du Plessis is probably the leading expert on Point and Figure charts. His earlier book, 'The Definitive Guide to Point and Figure', is the premier resource for anyone wishing to learn about this underused charting technique...As with the earlier book the text and charts are immaculately presented with numerous examples across all asset classes. They also benefit from Du Plessis's clear and unfussy style in explaining the various techniques and trade set-ups. This is a publication of real value and should be required reading for all technical traders, investors and analysts who are serious about expanding their understanding of technical analysis." - Jim Biss, The Technical Analyst
"An expert in Point and Figure technique, Mr. du Plessis is well qualified to take Point and Figure into the 21st century. Although it touches on the background of Point and Figure, this is a more advanced book, full of practical information. Picking up where The Definitive Guide to Point and Figure left off, Mr du Plessis explains a variety innovative techniques that truly do bring Point and Figure into the modern age." - Ken Tower, CMT
"Once again Jeremy du Plessis has pushed the boundaries of Point and Figure charting by applying moving averages and Bollinger Bands in unique ways to the chart. His application of time based indicators makes the Point and Figure chart even more relevant to today's traders and investors." - Bruce M. Kamich, CMT, Adjunct Professor of Finance at Baruch College / Past President of the Market Technicians Association and the Market Technicians Association Educational Foundation
"Jeremy du Plessis has been teaching Point and Figure charting on the Society of Technical Analysts (STA) Diploma Courses for nearly a quarter of a century. In 2005 he decided to write The Definite Guide to Point and Figure: A Comprehensive Guide to the Theory and Practical Use of the Point and Figure Charting Method, which has been on the STA's reading list ever since. His new book, 21st Century Point and Figure, takes Point and Figure charting to a whole new level. It expands on his first book and includes invaluable new techniques, such as advanced analysis of relative strength and spreads, market breadth and indicators on Point and Figure charts, to name but a few. The STA is pleased to add 21st Century Point and Figure to its Diploma Course reading list." - Axel Rudolph, Chairman of the Society of Technical Analysts
"Du Plessis brings Point and Figure into the modern era with new insights and innovation to enhance this time-proven technique. This work is invaluable to the serious chartist and highly recommended for the professional tasked with forecasting price targets or establishing risk management strategy. It pushes the envelope for Point and Figure enthusiasts to help them use their skill in new ways." - Gordon Scott, Managing Director, CMT Program, Market Technicians Association
"Mr du Plessis has taken traditional Point and Figure charts and successfully integrated key momentum indicators, volume and other commonly used tools, bringing Point and Figure analysis into the 21st century. As a market technician who has used Point and Figure for 20 years, I strongly believe that there is no better time to educate yourself on these updated approaches, first to better navigate the 'noise' that is bound to persist in all types of markets, and second to be able to effectively expand your horizons of market observation across the globe. With such high reliability, and a uniquely objective and quantifiable nature, there is no charting technique like Point and Figure, and this book can guide you to mastery of it." - Craig Johnson, CFA, CMT / Senior Technical Market Strategist, Piper Jaffray / President, Market Technicians Association
"Jeremy du Plessis has once again taken Point and Figure charting (P&F) to a new level. He has continued from where his first book (The Definitive Guide...) left off, by showing how pretty much any technical indicator can now be plotted on a P&F chart. This ranges from oscillators, moving averages, price bands/Donchian channels, and now even volume. But with one added benefit - when these traditional indicators are combined with P&F buy/sell signals for confirmation, it increases their effectiveness, resulting in fewer false signals (whipsaws). This in itself is a huge advantage. I particularly like his new breadth indicators that are unique to Point and Figure, which now further increase the effectiveness of P&F charts. Mr du Plessis has taken Point & Figure from a well-respected method of charting prices, and turned it into stand-alone branch of technical analysis." - Colin Abrams, CMT, TheMarket.co.za
"Jeremy du Plessis' new techniques will truly revolutionise this method of charting, dragging it kicking and screaming into the new century." - Nicole Elliott, STA
