Pitchforks are used as part of a popular analysis and trading technique. In essence, there are 3 key elements to it: 2 outside parallel lines that provide support and resistance and a median line in between them. To use a pitchfork correctly, identify 3 points that are consecutive highs and lows, where the first point represents the start of a trend. The median line connects the first point to the midpoint of the other 2. Additional lines can be added at a set number of standard deviations from the median, forming parallel trend channels.

Pitchforks can be used to identify buying and selling opportunities at those lines (for trading bounces or breaks), depending on the specific rules of entry and exit a trader may have. Conservative traders will look for additional confirmation. Apart from Andrew's Pitchfork there are variations like the Schiff Pitchfork, the Modified Schiff pitchfork and the Inside Pitchfork. TradingView has smart drawing tools for all of these techniques and there is a popular chat where users share pitchfork-based ideas.

Litecoin Bull Run Take 2

If Litecoin can hold above Fib retracement levels and stick to its current trend inside the pitchfork we could see another big bull run. With all the ETH and BTC FUD happening lately this could be a great entry before a possible moon mission.

A huge storm is brewing here. Going to push some buttons and open some of those blocked channels, clear some dark matter hopefully as painlessly as possible. But lets be honest: nothing good comes without pain. Get your hand of choice on that fib tool. Look at ETH on the daily. Drop it down on DAO hack back last year and line it up with the hardfork that ...

Well, that's no longer a wave-2. Two stops in a row hit for me on what looked like such a promising trade. Hey, reminder to self and all... there's no easy money in trading. Take the hit, live to trade another day and look for the next trade. We can read this... Yea, I'm sorry the channel didn't hold. It was gorgeous. But we've got a nice big fat A-B-C that ...

XRP Three drives

The pitchfork currently shows xrp is slightly underbought. 2 of the three drives have already formed and I fully expect the third to play out as well. When the third drive occurs seriously consider an exit. Btw, not the best chart, sorry I was in a hurry.

Two big dumps in one night, we are clearly swimming in whale shark infested waters. However, even with hundred of millions dumped within minutes, SIA remains within pitchfork range... for now. The support is too real.

Mysterious MIT Litecoin Project: Coblee is Satoshi Nakamoto?

A mysterious Litecoin project and countdown was launched today on MIT's official website: http://litecoin.mit.edu/ This has lead to many speculations regarding the project. However, I like extreme thoughts, so I want to speculate about something else: could Coblee, aka Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, be Satoshi Nakamoto himself? Lets take the following ...

BTCUSD: Update

I think we will see a sideways range in $BTCUSD, as anticipated in my last publication. Having bought a position very close to the recent correction bottom, I can comfortably wait it out until the weekly trends are ready to rally again. The timing for this event interestingly approaches August 1st, so, it makes me think the market will grind sideways for ...

Siacoin has been in a pitchfork (log scale) since the first pump starting on May 18. It has formed two pennants since then and the first one broke out very similarly to the initial pump. I'm watching SC closely to see if the pattern will repeat for a third pump. Entry - 550-650 Target - 750 Good luck!
