SWING LINE CHARTS
I would appreciate any information you have on swing line charts. Also, do you know of a charting system that shows this type of chart?
I'm not referring to oscillators but to a type of chart that W.D. Gann used. In Gann's day, he updated his charts by hand using this technique, and in comparison to his other techniques, it was simple to understand. It also appealed to me because it potentially could
improve my own cash management of a trade - when to enter or exit a trade.

I can't tell you which software draws swing line charts, but I can refer you to two articles that explain how to create them. "Gold: bull or bear market?" appeared in the March/April 1983 issue of STOCKS & COMMODITIES, Volume 1. "Anatomy of a Trade: December Treasury Bonds" appeared in July/August 1983 issue, also in Volume 1. Both articles were by Jesse Thompson.
