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)

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.
