Andrew’s Pitchfork

The Andrew’s Pitchfork is drawn between three points first point is the middle point of gold price, the next is the upper point of gold price and the third is the lower point of gold price. This draws three parallel lines that form a channel. XAUUSD Price should xauusd trend within this channel, if gold price moves outside of this channel like in the xauusd example shown 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 xauusd trader selects one continuous xauusd trend and draws a line between the high and low of the xauusd trend and then this MT4 xauusd 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.
