Hi Gary,

First of aall, thank you for this thread...

When you have time, could you please explain how you use the donkian channels? Which one do you consider for an entry, the 15, 34 or 55? Or the cross of 2 of them?

Thanks a lot.

Raphael

I use them in a few ways.

The cross of one end over the other on the 15 and the 34 as a trend change, I use them for entry areas in the direction of the trend; the 15 for impulsin markets, the 55 for whipsaw market, the 34 as my favorite probably for a lot of conditions.

They are also visual references to key past areas when you look back over an extended chart period.

OK thank you for your answer.
In this last case, did you use the lower band of the Donkian or the mean?

Thanks

Done.

Summary;

-13 long (divergence on 9, no trend cross)
+21 long (after trend cross)
+35 long (2pm short covering)
Net 43 ticks


The support area that held today is significant on a daily chart, and therefore could signal a major trend reversal to the upside in the days to come.

I don't use the mean at all.

I believe a Donkian is one who rides a donkey, .

It is Donchian Channel, after a guy named Richard Donchian. Richard Donchian: The Father of Trend Following; Learn from Michael Covel

This I believe was posted earler, but the LSP support on the daily caught some attention at the close. That was also the 786 range.
