    PnF base period value

    What does base period type and base period value have to do with anything?

    As I understand it, if I set a box size of 2 ticks, then the following applies:

    1. For every 2 ticks bid in price, a corresponding X is created.
    2. For every 2 ticks offered in price, a corresponding O is created.

    For a reversal to occur and a new column to appear, price has to reverse and close by 2 ticks. As an example:

    Price goes 18,20,22,24. (4 x's on my chart)
    Price goes back down to 22 (a new column is created and an O is printed.)

    Can you please explain how the 'reversal', 'base period type' and 'base period value' fit into this picture?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Thanks for posting.

    The Base Period Type and Value setting will determine the base from where the Point & Figure boxes are build. A base is required in order to start calculating what boxes and columns would be created out of the underlying price action.
