With growing technology, other charting methods were made easier, and this classic paper-pencil method took a back seat. However, timeless charting has recently gained importance again, creating a renewed and growing interest for Point and Figure charts. With the 2017 v3 releases of ComponentOne Studio Enterprise and Wijmo, our FinancialChart control now lets you take advantage of timeless charting with Point and Figure charts.
