13# Donchian Channels Forex Trading System
Trading with Dochian Cannels
The Donchian channels are set as follows:
First channel to 60 periods - white channels
Second channel to 20 periods - magenta channels
Third channel to 10 periods - yellow channels.
Under input the ADVANCE is set to 2 on all channels, that mean that the channels are moved forward by to candles. THis have the effect that candles can break through the lines, of the advance is set to 0 then the candles will be contained by the channels. Since this is a breakout system it is easier to see the candles break a line and therefore I have made the adjustment for visual effect.
If you want to trade only short time frames you can delete the 60 period channel.
If you want to trade only longer time frames you can delete to 10 period channel.
For short time frame trading enter when price break to Don 20 (Magenta) and exit if it retrace back over the Don 10 (yellow) channels.
For longer term enter when Don 60 (white) channel is broken and exit when retrace back over Don 20 (Magenta). In other words enter a trade on either a break of the 20 or 60 longer Don channels and exit on a shorter channel.
I further look at the MA and enter in the direction of the shorter (green) MA.
These two the RSI and MA's are my filters. You can set the time lines to any setting you want
Just to avoid confusion, you enter long if the upper channel is broken and visa versa for short
