Image does not match text[edit]

If I follow the instructions for drawing a Kagi Chart then I wouldn't get the chart shown in the images. Also the charts in the images don't have thick and thin lines as per the instructions, I think this need sorting out by someone with domain knowledge. Rich257 13:20, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Agreed, and the references don't offer much more info. Instead, I found a very good description at <http://www.investopedia.com/articles/trading/07/kagi_chart.asp> and I think I can improve this article based on that. LightYear 04:51, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
Have made my first attempt. Would eventually like to see a format similar to Candlestick chart. Need some better free images too. Also might be worth creating wikilinks for things like signals and stock charts. LightYear 05:35, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Doubt on history[edit]

  1. Kagi charts are logically equivalent to point and figure charts.
  2. I have *never* seen any documentation that shows they were invented in the 1870s in Japan. The first reference I've seen to Kagi charts is in Steve Nison's book, Beyond Candlesticks. For all I know, Nison could have actually invented Kagi charts from looking at American swing charting techniques invented by Dow, Wyckoff, Jesse Livermore and others. -- Ed Borasky (znmeb) 3 February 2010 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Znmeb (talkcontribs) 23:48, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Should this article be removed?[edit]

At this point it doesn't seem like any more sources are going to magically appear to bring this article up to standards. It's been over two years since the call for more citations was posted and the silence is deafening. As far as I can tell the Steve Nison book is the only source there is. IMHO the article should be removed. If there's an article about Steve Nison what little content there is here can easily be pasted there. ;-) M.
