Point and Figure RS Charts are calculated by dividing one security by another and plotting the ratio on a PnF chart.  When the ratio is rising, it is plotted in a column of X’s and reflects the numerator outperforming the denominator.  Likewise, when the relative strength ratio is declining, it is plotted in a column of O’s and reflects the outperformance of the denominator.
