Andrew’s Pitchfork

The Andrew’s Pitchfork is drawn between three points first point is the middle point of indices price, the next is the upper point of stock indexes price and the third is the lower point of indices price. This draws three parallel lines that form a channel. Indices Price should indices trend within this channel, if stock indexes price moves outside of this channel like in the stock indexes trading example explained and illustrated below the trade should be closed.

Cycle Lines

Cycle lines are vertical lines drawn at an equal distance representing market cycles. To draw these lines a indices trader selects one continuous indices trend and draws a line between the high and low of the indices trend and then this MetaTrader 4 stock indices indicator automatically plots the cycle line, these lines represent market cycles.

From the above example the buy is a text and the sell is a text label, both are not much different only that the text will move with the chart, while the text label is fixed at one point and will not move with the chart.
