Two Channel Trading Strategy

Two Channel Trading Strategy

This strategy takes components from turtle trading.

Turtle trading was an experiment in 1983 to prove that traders who followed a strict set of trading rules could be profitable. The two channel strategy borrows a key component from turtle trading.

The strategy is based on using 2 Donchian channels. Donchian channels were developed by Richard Donchian. The upper boundary of the channel is the highest high of the last n periods and the lower boundary is the lowest low of the past n periods.

In this strategy I use a 4 hour chart and 24 and 12 period Donchian channels. I chose 24 and 12 periods because these equate to 4 days and 2 days respectively. If you trade a different timeframe you may want to adjust the channel length to something that is meaningful for that timeframe.
