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.

Bitcoin Macro Analysis - Approaching Key Yearly Pivot

Here's a fresh macro look at what's coming using weekly ichimoku, elliott waves and fibos. Bitcoin is rapidly approaching a key yearly pivot. Whatever happens in the next 2 weeks will define Bitcoin (and the whole crypto) market till the end of the year. We will soon enter the vertical rising ichimoku cloud on a weekly (Point 3). Historically we already had 2 ...

Gold Looking Up

Gold broke its trading range to the downside but bears are seemingly not capable of taking it lower. Taking long positions at this stage is justified with tight stops under recent low of 1282. The R:R could be better on this trade but that's one of the drawbacks when traders wait for a breakout of the trading range as a confirmation to enter the market. There are ...

APPLE Looking For A Pullback

Apple went for the measured move after extended pullback consolidation. Achieving measured moves is usually followed by another round of pullback consolidation. Though the trend is up, short sellers can also make money as the price action shows a broad channel up. Though short selling in uptrends is a risky business, it seems reasonable to sell short around ...

USOIL Bears Fail Yet Again

There's a constant inflow of demand for USOIL. Dips are being bought by trend continuation players without hesitation and the overextended state of this market is not scaring bulls away. Given the HHs and HLs, it seems reasonable to buy around 7150 with tight stops under recent lows around 7120. Lower probability set up with decent R:R.

Rinse, Wash, Repeat: the fractal road to 8K

(see related ideas below) Called the 17.2K bulltrap when folks were expecting to unload bags at 18-19K. Called the 9K low on the second selloff, when folks were clamoring for even more blood. Now we're repeating the same rebound, retrace, and collapse cycle on this pitchfork. This rally should get stuck under the old yellow triangle bottom, so no more than 14K. ...

XLMUSD (Lumen) Stellar 05/01/18 9 p.m. EST by MMansfield. Hi trader friends! Stellar Lumen (XLM) appears to be at or near a Wave 3 high. This should be followed by a pullback to 0.3200 area (previous Wave 4 territory) then another wave higher that could take it into the 0.60s. REASONS: The longer-term cycle (blue) is strong up until mid-July so there is still ...

Goldman Sachs Anti Set UP

GS seems to be attracting demand recently. The trend down is losing momentum and it might just be the time to enter an anti set up here for a modest 1.5-2R target. Though sellers can enter this market any time, it seems more probable that bulls will take this higher to the Warning Line.

I think STELLAR have always good news and good contract and I keep it in my basket always but this time I feel that we should be more patient xlm is on the wave C from second wave can go faster to finish it and start to run up but I dont think so!

EURGBP: Key Level to Watch for Shorts

Price has breached below both the lower quartile of the upsloping median line set and a structure S&R level. There is a high probability that it will retrace to test the broken level and in such a case we better watch for a sell setup completion to join the upcoming selloff

At the WL1, price is clearly extended and I look for a Trade up to the L-MLH at least. (if you don't know what L-MLH means, it's the Lower-Medianline-Parallel - checkout my free course). Another fact that I want to bring to your attention is, that price reacts very nice at the lines of the Fork - even with all the GAPS in between... I wish you all a happy and ...
