The chart starts with a rapid price decrease, which creates a bottom 1. This is actually the first point of the channel, which is currently being created. The further price action sends the price upwards, creating a top 2. Then we see a push lower, which sends the price downwards to point 3.
The further price increase stops at point 4 , confirming the channel. This is the first trading opportunity on the chart — at point 4. When the price touches the upper level of the bearish channel for second time, it creates a potential for a short trade. The further price bounces create two more long trades and two more short trades. Though we should note, once again, that since this is a bearish channel, we would prefer to trade to the short side, and wait for a channel breakout prior to looking for a long trade.
Take a look at the last short opportunity in the channel. The price returns back to the upper level and breaks it upwards red circle. Breaking the upper level the price action creates a close signal for this short trade. However, at the same time, the price creates a long signal for a new trade, since we now have a bullish breakout of the bearish channel. The price moves sharply higher after the breakout.
You would have two options to exit this long breakout trade. In both exit options the trade would have been profitable. One of the more popular channel indicators is the Linear Regression Channel. This type of channel indicator looks similar to a standard channel however, the Linear Regression Channel indicator has a middle line, which is a median price value.
The upper and the lower level are evenly distanced from the median line. In this manner, the middle line of the Linear Regression Channel also acts as a support or a resistance. Furthermore, this line could be used as a trigger to enter trades in the direction of the trend. Have a look at the image below:. This is a standard Linear Regression Channel. You see the upper level, the lower level and the median line. The black arrows on the chart image point to moments when the channeling price action reacts to the median as a support or a resistance.
After a bounce from the median line, the price usually returns to where it came from. At the same time, when the price breaks the median level, we see a further move to the opposite channel line. Traders can use the median level of the Linear Regression Channel as a confirmation for their trades.
At the same time, the median line could be used to attain exit signals as well. The Donchian Channel is another channel trading indicator. The Donchian channel indicator is calculated by taking the highest high and the lowest low of N p eriods. These highs and lows are marked by horizontal lines, with dynamically changing levels depending on the highest high and the lowest low for the progressing periods.
As such, the price action is encapsulated by the Donchian price channel. The Donchian trading indicator also has a middle line. This line is simply the average between the upper and the lower Donchian levels. However, when the price starts to continuously hit the upper band, and prices continue to rise, then we get a long signal on the chart. The same is in force for the lower band. If the price action starts hitting the lower band of the Donchian channel and pushes it downwards, then you get a short signal.
In other words, expanding the distance between the upper and the lower channels gives us a bias on the price dynamics and the formation of a trend. At the same time, the middle band can be used as a further confirmation of entry or exit signals.
You may have noticed that the Donchian channel indicator resembles the Bollinger Bands indicator. Indeed, they are used in a similar way. However, we must understand the difference between the two. The Donchian indicator is based on the price high and low over x periods, while the Bollinger Bands indicator has a volatility based configuration.
The image below will show you the Donchian channel indicator and illustrate a Forex channel trading scenario:. Above you see the Donchian channel strategy. It looks pretty chaotic, however, once you understand what to look for, this initial chaos begins to make sense.
When the two bands are tight, the Donchian bands act as support and resistance. In this phase, price bounces up and down between the two bands. We consider this a consolidation period or ranging market condition. You can still trade the bouncing price moves between the two bands, but this is not the best application of the Donchian trading method. The most attractive function of the Donchian indicator in recognizing strong momentum breakouts.
We see this when the price starts hitting the upper band, moving it upwards or starts hitting the lower band, moving it downwards. The green arrows on the image point out when the price creates higher highs. In this manner, the upper Donchian band starts moving upwards too. This means that the price is increasing with relatively high intensity, creating a suitable entry in a long trade. Then the bands get tight again. The price starts testing the upper and the lower bands as resistance and support.
Suddenly, the price action starts hitting the lower Donchian band, creating lower lows red arrows. This creates a short opportunity on the price chart. Referring to the image above, the proper place to go long would have been with the first green arrow on the chart. This is where price has closed above the previous consolidation level, and has been testing the upper Donchian channel over the last few periods, in a possible attempt to breakout to the upside.
The trade could be held until the price breaks the middle band downwards. This is the exit signal from the trade. As you see, this is actually where the bands are getting close to each other and the pair starts to range. Thanks for the comment. Thanks for the comment Datka! Sure is a great indicator. We cannot wait to see what some of you think It has huge potential!

Thanks for the comment and we hope this indicator will be extremely powerful for you as a trader. Thanks for the CTI I positive that it was the missing link to my trading. I'm not new to the Rabbit trail strategy when you first introduced it some couple of months ago I started using it because it was very easy for me to understand and was my first time to trade with channels.
I tried to get 50 pips this proved difficult. I teaked it to lower times frames my pips improved to about 25 pips plus this was a big step to as I never used to get those pips before. So now with this CTI indicators is even easier to identify pull backs as I use support and resistance. Can't to have my own copy thanks to my mentor Casey Stubbs and his team well done for making me get some profit from trading.
Once again thanks Collin Gonye. Hey Collin! Yes I agree that sometimes 50 pips is just not possible as the strategy has a default which is why we made sure there is a setting where you can adjust it to your desired pips. Thanks for you comment! It looks pretty straightforward and easy to use but most importantly it looks profitable and i think and indicator like this will be able to generate steady profits for even novice traders like me. Yes David it certainly can be profitable for any trader, especially one that is new to the market.
Thanks for your comment! This is one indicator that I would like to add to my other indicators like the EFC; they just take trading to a whole new level. All you traders out there you have to know the Trading Strategy Team and be part of the growing family.

To help people trade our strategies consistently. It sure is This looks like a very straight forward method. It is probably simple enough for even a fool such as I. Your are right about one thing this is a very straight forward method to trading the market. However, we do not agree about the fool part Thanks for the comment Joy, you are entered in the competition. Thanks for continuing to share these useful strategies, I am interested in any indicator that is not commonly available and allows me as trader to get a slightly different perspective on market activity, than the majority of traders using commonly available approaches.
A channel trading indicator variation as described sounds like a great tool to have, thanks David. This indicator is truly one-of-a-kind. Its been setting up very powerful breakout channels. This is a trade one of our team members just took using this powerful indicator Thank you for this trading strategy--extremely well explained.
I believe that if it made a number of successful trades in a row, i might be more attentive-- however the setup can go on for days Once you see that the CTI triggered a breakout out, you simply analyze the trade and make a trading decision based on what the indicator showed you. Right here there is no breakout triggered but you could use another strategy to trade that channel and find a good possible entry. Whats great about this indicator we are finding out as we go is that you can trade inside and outside the channel.
So there is basically always a possible trade happening. The indicator would make short work of trying to identify these channels. Would look forward to that! Sure thing! What interest do you have in an indicator that would help you trade the Rabbit Trail Strategy consistently? The CTI Indicator that we developed and giving one of these away to a lucky trader In this comment section will do that for you!
Comment away, we would love to hear from you! Hey Girish! Thanks for the question. This strategy will work in all markets on any time frame. We recommend on lower time frames lowering your target area to pips instead of With that small tweak the results are great for those scalpers out there who want to use this strategy. Channel trading is super simple with this indicator! Pretty Cool Right? Our focus will be on Forex currency pairs, but price channels can be also found on Equities, Futures, Commodities and other trading instruments.
Having said […]. If you need any more help with this strategy you can always reach us at info tradingstrategyguides. Thanks for the strategy! Just for clarity do I make the entry on the 15min chart or on 1 hour chart where I identified the breakout. Can the strategy be utilised by swing traders too?? Yes this strategy uses the 15 minute chart to identify the break and go if you want to call it that. So once you see a pull back candle that closed on a 15 minute chart, you wait for two min.
So the example I used you had to wait for two bullish green candles to close on a 15 minute chart in order to make the entry. Hope this helps! Wow guys everytime i see the name J Crawford or Trading Strategy i know im in for a trading tips treat!! You guys are awesome.. Ive learnt how to use the Ichimoku and some good scalping strategies eg LazyRiver.. Soon i will be equipped enough to venture into trading!
Thanks a lot and please keep up the good work.. Great to hear! We love hearing your guys feedback. Keep studying and use that demo account to your advantage! Have a great day! Did you try a backtest or reel trades during a time long enough like trades for instance? If you have done that, what are the results: number of win trades: how many pips?
Thank you again Roland. Awesome question! We would love for you to go ahead and try it yourself and post your results on here after you have back tested trades or so. It would be great to see a dedicated trader take the time to see if they are willing to use a strategy before they go live. We look forward hearing from you and can't wait to see your results if you are willing to do that.
Very well explain in simple words and charts, However Entry not very clearly understood, further Risk Reward seems not matching. Your entry is to be placed after a pull back on a 15 minute chart. The stop is placed below the last support or resistance depending if it is a buy or sell in the channel.
The goal is 50 pips so risk reward will vary depending on where your stop is placed in the channel. Do you want consistent cashflow right now?

In time, technical analysis witnessed multiple changes. Traders found new ideas to tackle the ongoing changes in the market. Including how price around a Forex channel evolves. MT4 stands for MetaTrader 4. In time, other versions followed. Moreover, big brokers developed their own trading platforms.
As such, the Forex channel indicator mt4 offers, appears on any trading platform. If not, traders can build a Forex channel on their own. Yet, any trading platform splits the indicators into two main categories. Trend indicators and oscillators. Every trader wants to ride a trend. After all, when trading, the trend is your friend. But, trends do not form easily. Furthermore, traders do not have patience. A Forex channel indicator mt4 traders apply on the daily chart requires time.
While it shows trending conditions, traders must have patience with this channel indicator. Moreover, the bigger the time frame, the bigger the potential reward. And, the risk, of course. As such, traders need to properly understand what makes a Forex channel.
On top of it, how to build a channel indicator. And, finally, how to use a channel indicator mt4 offers when the market trends. But, a price channel indicator mt4 shows is not the only way to deal with a Forex channel. The edges of a channel indicator may show a straight line. Or, not! Think of the Bollinger Bands indicator. While not a classical Forex channel indicator mt4 traders use, it is, in fact, a channel indicator.
First, traders must download the MT4 trading platform. Second, they must open a chart. Finally, the channel indicator mt4 platform offers is on the main menu. Just look for the Insert tab. Next, search for the Channel button. Finally, the channel indicator possibilities appear. The thing is, there are more option to a Forex channel.
The channel indicator mt4 may use Fibonacci for displaying the parallel lines. The Fibonacci ratios make a big part of technical analysis. No wonder the Forex channel indicator mt4 shows, uses them. Linear regression channels, equidistant ones, standard deviation ones…all these are just different types of channeling in technical analysis. On top of these possibilities, the classical channel indicator mt4 is part of the trading platform.
Not only on mt4. But, on any trading platform. However, what is a channel indicator if not parallel lines? Moreover, is it possible for the lines of a Forex channel to have a different angle? And, if yes, what is the best channel indicator to use? When the edges of a channel are not parallel, the indicator shows dynamic support and resistance levels.
These are even more powerful than classical ones. It is like in the case of classical support and resistance. When these form on the horizontal, the levels are not that powerful like the dynamic ones. The difference between a trend line and a Forex channel is huge. On the other hand, a channel indicator shows the possible target or take profit too. Moreover, in a bullish Forex channel, once price holds a support, the take profit level is set on the opposite edge of a channel.
But, perhaps the most important thing is: how do traders know when a channel indicator mt4 break is for real? When does a Forex channel indicator mt4 break really matters? To build a bullish Forex channel, traders use a several steps process.
First, they draw the lower bullish trend line. For that, they connect the closest two points from the low. The resulting Forex channel looks like any automatic channel indicator mt4 offers. Third, they buy on the lower edge. But, they do that only if the higher lows series still exists. Next, they set the take profit on the opposite side of the channel indicator. And, they keep continuing the same process until the channel breaks.
Or, both the Forex channel and the higher lows series break. Finally, when the price action gets really bullish, a new Forex channel forms. It has a steeper angle and is thicker. However, the trading principle of this new channel indicator is the same. It acts exactly like a Forex channel indicator mt4 platform builds automatically. And now that you know the basic concept behind the channel trading, I will show you a video example of a successful trade.
The video shows a trade I conducted as a result of a bullish channel bounce. I hopped into a long trade for the anticipated bullish channel impulse. Have a look at the video and share your opinion. Technical analysis is filled with multiple channel indicators.
In fact, any indicator that shows parallel lines is a channel indicator. Furthermore, any indicator that shows prices moving in a Forex channel, is a trend channel indicator. While not shown in this article, it plots three parallel lines. The result is a double price channel indicator. And, the list can go on. Moreover, some are new for retail traders. However, the resulting Forex channel should not.
A classical channel indicator mt4 offers shows a trend. However, because of the software plots it automatically, the parallel lines stretch back on the left side of the chart. And, the blue lines show the falling Forex channel. For the last two days, the Forex channel indicator mt4 traders saw was bearish. However, the price recently broke the upper edge of the channel indicator.
The channel, Forex traders know, is not broken until the previous lower high is. At this moment, traders have two options as a result of the price channel indicator mt4 break. First, aggressive traders will stay on for the market to make a new high. When doing that, the trade offers a solid risk-reward ratio. After all, managing risk is everything in Forex trading. Second, conservative traders will split the distance in two.
Next, they move the stop loss at break-even. And, finally, they stay for the 2 nd target. This is just a simple example on how to use Forex channels. Any channel indicator mt4 platform offers allows you to trade like this. On the other hand, aggressive traders will try to buy while price still channels.
This may offer a better risk-reward trade, but the risks are too high. The market may end up staying in a trend more than the trader stays solvent. As such, the safest bet is to wait for the channel to properly break.
Based on the Chester W. It shows trending conditions in the commodity markets. Yet, it functions properly on any financial asset. Some things to note: As you can see the red channel keeps moving with in the bounds of green channel. When green This is an experimental study designed to calculate polynomial regression for any order polynomial that TV is able to support.
I also designed this study with the intent of showcasing some of the capabilities and potential applications These bands use SMA as the basis. This strategy is trending, and is especially effective for trading cryptocurrency futures. This strategy is very flexible, and you can configure virtually all possible parameters, moreover, separately for longs and separately for shorts.
In the script, you can Hey guys, this little script is an addition to another one I will release right after this. This is the Price Action Channel. I have taken the smoothed moving average script from the public library in order to create this, so all props to whoever created that one.
