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.

TRON down channel

Price drops within a down channel and is almost to hit a major dynamic support. It is pressuring the 0.05915377 static support and the 61.8% retracement level. The perspective remains bearish as long as it stays within the down channel. A valid breakdown below the warning line (w1) will confirm a further drop at least till the 76.4% level.

USDCHF - Temporary Buy at .9635 and .9606. Stop .9574, Thursday

A renewal of Asian selling yesterday confirmed our bearish call. But the resulting downside lacked the momentum to break below the overnight low and, towards the end of the day, more significant profit taking resulted. Net gains were not extensive, but enough to end a sequence of 5 down days and although Asia has seen modest downside, our studies are left ...
