I haven't quit using "those silly assed forks", Wayno. I use whatever trendlines are the most appropriate and compatible for the existing pattern that will best define the current trend or situation of a market. In the case of the current daily gold chart, it is not conducive to, or appropriate to use a fork in this instance with the current prevailing pattern being what it is, an ascending triangle.
Wayno says: "The forks are a lessor understanding of the bigger picture. In other words they are like Microsoft software...all MS is, is a method by which the computer is dumbed down so the idiot masses can work a computer...same with forks."
That is precisely why I use the forks when given the opportunity to do so, so that I can get a clearer picture of where market price can possibly go. The center line and upper and lower reaction lines of a fork gives a poor dumb bloke a heads up in advance of what is possible for the market to do. I have found that when used in combination with the "golden ratio" calculations of a waveform, the forks are an invaluable tool that can enhance anyones trading toolbox.
