Power Charting TV: Accumulation in the Master’s Own Words

Richard D. Wyckoff, the Master, in his own words; and his quest to understand what propelled stock prices.

He observed large interests conducting campaigns of a magnitude that resulted in trends lasting for months and years. As a young man he studied these Composite Operators (C.O.) and how they would stealthily conduct campaigns. He developed a methodology for detecting the footprints of C.O. interests on the charts (which he called Tape Reading). He created an entire approach called the ‘Wyckoff Method’ for identifying the campaigns of large Accumulation and Distribution and how they emerge into the trends where sizeable returns are made.

In this Power Charting TV episode, we study the very words of the Master as he recounts his discovery of the Accumulation process as performed by legendary operator E.H. Harriman (of Union Pacific Railroad fame) as he conducted a major campaign. In our Power Charting case study, we apply Mr. Wyckoff’s words to a campaign transpiring a full 100 years later. The essential conclusion is the principles of successful speculation have not changed much, if at all since Mr. Wyckoff’s Wall Street tenure.

Mastery Lessons from Richard D. Wyckoff

Johni Scan (John Colucci) then illustrates a one-line scan that ranks the leading industry groups. Then how to search those groups for the best leading stock ideas and how to use those scans for identifying emerging Accumulation.
