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

Cycle lines are vertical lines drawn at an equal distance representing market cycles. To draw these lines a trader selects one continuous trend and draws a line between the high and low of the trend and then this MT4 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.
