The entry is carried out at the moment of the breakdown of the support or resistance level. Exit signal - price breakout in the opposite direction of the trend of the same time interval.

1) Shorter term entry:
- An entry condition is a breakout of the 20-day high or low.
- The deal is skipped if the previous signal was successful.
If the previous trade was closed with a profit, we skip the entry . If it suddenly turns out that the breakout is profitable, then later we enter it after breaking through the 55-day channel.
When the price breaks this channel, we enter the trade.
2) Longer term entry (if the 20-day breakout was missed for the reasons stated above):
- The price breaks the 55-day high or low of the Donchian Channel.
Note! Approach 2 does not use the filter for the previous trade, we always enter.
1) In the classic version, there is a simplified form of calculation for turtles. It looks like this:
In order to work with the formula for calculating the stop loss, you should add the ATR indicator to the chart:
StopLoss = ATR (20) * 2
2) We offer an additional option for calculating StopLoss. This is an exit along the middle line of the indicator.
The screenshot in the product description shows both StopLoss options:
- At the bottom, the ATR indicator with a period of 20 is displayed. Thus, in the first calculation, the Stop Loss will be 389 * 2 = 780 points.
- In the upper part of the screenshot you can see the estimated Stoploss level for the second strategy, that is, along the middle line. The second option is Stoploss = 745 points.
As you can see, the StopLoss levels in the first and second cases are different, but have similar indicators. You can use any of the presented options in your trading.
Installed at a distance of at least every 0.5 ATR from the entry point.
- Period Donchian - Channel period. Based on the previous specified number of candles, from the low to the high price level. On channel breakouts, we receive signals of a trend reversal.
