so you wanna know more about pitchforks...
The number one question I am asked is: Where do I find out more about Andrews pitchforks?
The fast track is to visit marketwarrior.com. Patrick Mikula has published a very simple and concise book titled The Best Trendline Methods of Alan Andrews
, which I recommend to those who like a working desk reference. Don't think $55 is too much for such a slender volume-- you won't find the material in such an easy to use
form elsewhere. Even Alan Andrews own course material isn't as clearly presented! If Andrews pitchforks "speak" to you, this is my first recommendation.
I have not personally used pitchforkprimer.com, but it is a low key site with a chart teaser posted now and then. What feedback I've read has been positive. It looks hands on, ie, turn in your examples as you learn, which may appeal to some.
ed: Since first posting this, Tim Morge has published a book on forks. There are copious examples of his work on his various sites and although I have not bought his book and thus cannot recommend it from personal experience, it is available through his website
and is likely to appeal to those who prefer a meticulous and extremely detailed approach to learning.
At last, over the rim
of the waiting earth
the moon lifted with
till it swung clear of the horizon and rode off,
free of moorings
