Remarks

Nicolas Darvas was a pro dancer, self-taught investor and author. He is also widely known for his book, "How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market", where he describes his "Box System", which he used to buy and sell stocks.

His trading method was also called "BOX theory", according to which he considered a stock price move as a series of boxes. When the stock price was within the limits of such a box, he just waited. He bought only when the price rose out of the box. At the same time he also set a stop-loss just under the bottom of the most recent box.

There are some default rules about the dimensions of a "Darvas Box", that is for when the top and bottom of a box are confirmed and make a clearly formed box (for further details you can see among many others, the e-book "Darvas Box Trading" by Frank Watkins).
