Hi All,

Can anyone please provide an explanation on the “Boxcar Effect” as it applies to TA? I understand it has to do with price behaviour as a trend or maybe averaging period is finishing.

I came across the term in a review of Murphy's "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets" - the tome was criticised for NOT describing this "important" phenomenon.

What does it mean? How does it work? Is it a useful tool?

Googling has turned up nothing for me so far……any good references?

Thanks in advance
