Tim Morge has announced the formation of Market Geometry Institute. I am not connected to this organization in any way. I am simply making this information available here and encourage interested people to share their thoughts.

From the website -

The Market Geometry Institute (MGI) strives to provide the best quality educational material available to traders at any level of experience or expertise through the Market Geometry website; there is no better place to learn to become a more consistent trader.

We believe in Laozi's well known philosophy: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

The MGI is not a ‘chat site’, not plastered with advertising, doesn’t offer trade touts or buy and sell signals for $400 or $500 a month. MGI doesn’t make unrealistic promises.

We have purposely kept a great deal of our material available, free; and we have purposely kept our 'for fee' materials and services prices extremely low.

Here are a couple of links -

Good trading,

Mahlon

Let us assume that the pitchfork was a precursor to linear regression channels. Below a document that focusses on Median Lines. On of the approaches promoted by the Market Geometry Institute. Judge yourself.

Conclusions
"The Median Line method appears to be a valid method of determining potential price action. Price returned to the Median Line 80% of the time as the method suggests. The most impressive outcome is the probabilities related to price cycling within the Median Line set. If the Median Line set describes price well, and price bounces off the Median Line and Median Line Parallels, high probability patterns appear. Although limitations exist with the method, the probabilities recorded demonstrate the usefulness of the method in determining potential price action. However, the study did not consider actual trade management including entries and exists. Actually trading the method is another endeavor in itself. The study does however suggest the Median Line method can give a trader an idea of the probability of price following a certain pattern given the proper conditions. It appears intuition and experience play a major role in the success of applying the method. It is unlikely an individual can pick up the basics of the method and immediately have success in trading. It appears, as with anything, practice and study are the keys to successfully applying the Median Line method to trading."


While these methods are tried and true and have a high probability of giving good followthrough, the challenge is still proper execution and trade management in real time.

I agree that futures.io (formerly BMT) is a great site. With all due respect though, I doubt that there are very many here that would be in the same league as Tim. For example, see this article -

There is another thread on the pitchfork here. I've been studying and practicing using it for entries in sim, but really haven't had much luck so far. I keep trying to predict the swing points, instead of identifying them, which just doesn't work. But I have been using it for setting profit targets. It seems especially useful in ranging markets when shooting for the moon is not practical or you aren't really sure what the best target is. This morning it kept me in a trade longer, when before I would have dumped out earlier at the pivot/ema20. I need more experience to better analyze it, but so far it seems to be improving my stats.

Nice chart. I have had very similar experiences to yours. Looks nice after the fact, but I am also still working on real time execution. Thanks for sharing.

Here is a link to Alan Andrews' Action Reaction Course. Dr. Andrews was an active trader for 50 years. He used median lines, pitchforks, action reaction lines, etc. extensively in his charting techniques.

This is what I have been reading, and rereading, and rereading. It's pretty hard to follow and, while throwing up a pitchfork after an entry is easy, trying to apply the action reaction concept is proving to be quite challenging. Hopefully it's worthwhile.
