What is Andrews Pitchfork?
It is a not well known technical indicator that can be very effective. It consists of three points and three lines, that together make three parallel trend lines that indicate possible levels of support and resistance.
A pitchfork is created by; placing points at following High, Low and High points or Low, High and Low points. Then drawing a line from point one through the midpoint between point two and three.
The drawn lines on the chart could indicate resistance and support levels.
