Simplest Trading Strategy that works

Hello Traders,

As a trader, One always looks for a Good Trading setup until he finds a one. I have tried many setups and using this Simplest trading setup using the Donchain channel and I have explained in this article how to set up your trading setup.

This is a very simple setup and anyone can trade easily without any other Signals or indicators.

“Less Noise & More Action” Setup.

Here in this setup, we will follow the Support & Resistance rule.

  • Support shall be Minimum of the 2 Previous days LOW ;
  • Resistance shall be Maximum of the 2 previous days HIGH.

Yes, This is very simple.

For this, you need to have 2 Sets of Data.

If “T” is the Trading day you want to use this setup, you need to have “T-1” & “T-2” OHLC Data.

Resistance = Max (“T-1” HIGH & “T-2” HIGH)

Support = Min (“T-1” HIGH & “T-2” HIGH)


  • Go LONG (buy) when the index/underlying stock crosses “Resistance” with Stoploss T-1 Low.
  • Short (sell) when the index/underlying stock loses “Support” with Stoploss T-1 High.

You may doubt that what software is required to build this setup. Luckily, we don’t need any elegant software. All we need is “EXCEL”.

Trade Set-up :

1.Create 6 sheets in a Workbook like below:
