Beginner and Intermediate Level

Volume 1 is focussing on developing the basic knowledge of the pitchfork analysis through the market dynamics and the morphology of the pitchfork (market kinetics and study of pitchfork’s structure: definition, form, inflexion, derivation and compounding).
No prior knowledge of trading is required.

Figure 1

The morphology of the pitchfork reveals a true relation between price and time, in both trending or sideways markets.

Figure 2

Multiple pitchforks set-up is one of the indispensables elements, which senses the abrupt change of the trending market

Figure 3

The price faithfully describes the down-sloping market through the channel formed by the internal median line and the upper median line in the search for the path of the least resistance!

Figure 4

The market outburst with a high steamed momentum, is best described by a pitchfork having the anchor at the high, the middle or the low of a gap. The anchor is on this chart at the high gap pivot.

Figure 5

The choice of the Schiff median line is very useful when the projected pitchfork faces a "vis-รก-vis" swing, especially after a reversal, followed by a breakaway gap.

Figure 6

Most of the traders don't think of observing "what doesn't happen" on the chart. The concept of running out of steam gives the trader a serious edge to reveal the up-sloping or down-sloping failures, especially in topping or bottoming markets. They are the basement of many low-risk high-probability trades.

Figure 7

Some of Action / Reaction line set-ups bring the question of integrating a pitchfork with a suspended pivot (P2 in our case). Only one thing counts ... get the best market description!

Figure 8

The pitchfork perfectly integrates in the multiple pitchforks set-up, to pinpoint a possible reversal, or the termination of the current swing.

Figure 9

The sideways market, which represents around 70% of the trading time is very well put to profit with the association of the horizontal trend line support-resistance and the usual multiple pitchforks set-up.
