1 Why the E.A.S.Y. Method? Mark Douglas, author of Trading in the Zone, states: The best traders have developed an edge and more importantly, they trust their edge.
2 Why the E.A.S.Y. Method? My trading edge rules: 1. A high probability of success. 2. Enter and exit trades without conflict or stress. 3. Trade decisions dictated by price action, not by my preconceived beliefs and opinions.
3 Developing the E.A.S.Y. Method 1. Does it really work at the moment of decision? 2. Does is have a high degree of probability and predictability? 3. Is it simple to use and follow, especially at times of critical trading decisions? 4. Does it yield more winners than losers?
4 What is E.A.S.Y.? E = Effective Provides me an effective edge in my trading.
5 What is E.A.S.Y.? E = Effective A = Accurate Delivers a high degree of probability and predictability.
6 What is E.A.S.Y.? E = Effective A = Accurate S = Simple Keeps my analysis simple in order to get a quick snapshot of the market, and make trading decisions with less stress and anxiety.
7 What is E.A.S.Y.? E = Effective A = Accurate S = Simple Y = Yield Yields a higher ratio of winning trades versus losing traders. It s a numbers game!
9 E.A.S.Y. Chart Setup Average Price Bars Price Action Channel Traders Dynamic Index
10 Average Price Bars
11 Average Price Bars Provide a better depiction of current market trend at a glance. Reveal periods of consolidation. Show market strength. Eliminate fluctuations of nominal price action. Removes the noise of price distortion of the underlying trend.
12 Average Price Bars Using the Heiken Ashi method Heiken means Average Ashi means Bar Heiken Ashi averaging technique haclose = (Open + High + Low + Close) / 4 haopen = (haopen(previous bar) + haclose(previous bar))/2 hahigh = Maximum(High, haopen) halow = Minimum(Low,haOpen)
13 Typical Candlesticks
14 Typical Candlesticks False exit points.
15 Average Price Bars
16 Average Price Bars
17 Average Price Bars Positive bars mean BUY Negative bars mean SELL
18 Average Price Bars Positive bar with long upper wick means Strong BUY Negative bar with long lower wick means Strong SELL
19 Average Price Bars A positive bar with lower wick means Weak BUY A negative bar with upper wick means Weak SELL
20 Average Price Bars A very short bar means Change of Trend Shorter bar than previous bar is an indication of Change
21 Price Action Channel
22 Traditional Price Channel Two principal formats: 1. A pair of trend lines above and below price representing Support and Resistance levels. 2. An envelope of bands around price with set deviation limits such as Bollinger Bands, Keltner or Donchian Channels.
23 Traditional Price Channel Used to determine upper and lower boundaries and signal potential reversal or breakout. Traditional price channels can cause reactive trading!
24 Price Action Channel NOT a traditional price channel. Does not set outside of price in wait for the market. It resides inside price movement. Used by institutional traders and sophisticated trading programs. Promotes responsive trading!
25 Price Action Channel Provides overall trend direction. Reveals periods of consolidation. Used primarily as an Entry target. BUY Trend Average Price Bars tend to run on top of channel. SELL Trend Average Price Bars tend to run on bottom of channel.
26 Price Action Channel Use Smoothed Moving Average Top of Channel = 5 period, High Bottom of Channel = 5 period, Low
27 Price Action Channel Good BUY (Long) Trend Positive bars riding the top of the Price Action Channel Nice upward trend of the Price Action Channel.
28 Price Action Channel Good SELL (Short) Trend Nice downward trend of the Price Action Channel. Negative bars riding the bottom of the Price Action Channel
29 Price Action Channel Range-Bound, No Trend Price Action Channel is flat with no clear direction.

32 Traders Dynamic Index Step 1: RSI Price Line Rules: Trade Long when RSI PL is above 50. Trade Short when RSI PL is below 50. Consider exit when RSI PL is > 68 or < 32.
33 Traders Dynamic Index RSI Price Line compared to Price Action
34 Traders Dynamic Index Step 2: Trade Signal Line Rules: Trade Long when RSI PL > TSL. Trade Short when RSI PL < TSL. Exit trade when RSI PL & TSL crossover.
36 Traders Dynamic Index Step 3: Market Base Line Rules: Market Base Line acts as Overall Trend. Trade Long when RSI PL is > MBL. Trade Short when RSI PL is < MBL.
37 Traders Dynamic Index Market Base Line compared to Price Action
38 Traders Dynamic Index Market Base Line forecasts Market Reversals
39 Traders Dynamic Index Step 4: Volatility Bands Rules: Add to a Long trade when RSI PL is > VB. Add to a Short trade when RSI PL is < VB. Consider exit when RSI PL crosses back over VB.
40 Traders Dynamic Index Volatility Bands compared to Daily Price Action
41 Traders Dynamic Index Volatility Bands compared to Intraday Price Action
42 Traders Dynamic Index Adjusting RSI MA & Volatility Band for Global Perspective RSI PL & TSL combined with Volatility Band
43 E.A.S.Y. Method Putting it all together! Average Price Bars - Heiken Ashi indicator Price Action Channel - 2 Smoothed Moving Averages - 5 period, High - 5 period, Low Traders Dynamic Index - RSI = 13 period, Close - Volatility Band = 34 period, Close - RSI Price Line = 2 period, Close, SMA - Trade Signal Line = 7 period, Close, SMA
44 E.A.S.Y. Method Entry Rules
45 E.A.S.Y. Method All systems GO! Average Price Bars (APB) Look for Positive or Negative bars trending. Monitor the current haclose. BUY signal Positive bar making long upper wick. SELL signal Negative bar making long lower wick. Long entry haclose > PAC High Moving Average Short entry haclose < PAC Low Moving Average
46 E.A.S.Y. Method All systems GO! Price Action Channel (PAC) Monitor the direction of the Channel. Buy signal Channel trending up. Sell signal Channel trending down. Monitor the High & Low Channel values in relation to the current haclose. Long entry haclose > PAC High & PAC uptrend Short entry haclose < PAC Low & PAC downtrend
47 E.A.S.Y. Method All systems GO! Traders Dynamic Index (TDI) Long entry = RSI PL > 50, TSL, and MBL. Consider adding to Long trade if RSI PL > the upper Volatility Band and > 50, but < 68. Avoid entering a Long trade when RSI PL > the upper Volatility Band, > 50, and > 68.
48 E.A.S.Y. Method All systems GO! Traders Dynamic Index (TDI) Short entry = RSI PL < 50, TSL, and MBL. Consider adding to Short trade if RSI PL < the lower Volatility Band and < 50, but > 68. Avoid entering a Short trade when RSI PL < the lower Volatility Band, < 50, and < 68.
49 E.A.S.Y. Method Entry Setups Long Entry: (All conditions are satisfied.) 1. APB haclose > PAC High Moving Average. 2. PAC trending up. 3. TDI = RSI PL > 50, TSL, and MBL. Short Entry: (All conditions are satisfied.) 1. APB haclose < PAC Low Moving Average. 2. PAC trending down. 3. TDI = RSI PL < 50, TSL, and MBL.
50 E.A.S.Y. Method Exit Rules
51 E.A.S.Y. Method Time to Exit the money train! APB Long exit Positive bar is much shorter than the previous bar or changes to a negative bar at close. PAC Long exit APB closes inside the channel. TDI Long exit = 1. RSI PL crosses back below the TSL to the downside. 2. RSI PL > RSI PL crosses back below the upper Volatility Band to the upside.
52 E.A.S.Y. Method Time to Exit the money train! APB Short exit Negative bar is much shorter than the previous bar or changes to a positive bar at close. PAC Short exit APB closes inside the channel. TDI Short exit 1. RSI PL crosses back over the TSL to the upside. 2. RSI PL < RSI PL crosses back up over the lower Volatility Band.
