Andrew’s Pitchfork

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

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.
