TradingChannels.uk is a technical analysis service which specialises on trend channels and interim support & resistance lines without use of any other tools such as indicators, moving averages, fibonacci’s, wave counts etc. If your objective is to make good returns on your trading/investing capital we, myself and the successful followers of this service, certainly believe that you can make it too by keeping it simple and pure. This website’s main objective is to help you achieve it through not only taking advantage of the analysis posted here but also discussing to make new analyses and sharing good setups with others in the comments section.

The blog I started back in March 2013 turned into a full blown charting website with 75k+ monthly page views. That blog changed my life and my trading positively and it also made me realize how addicted I am to markets. They say if you can’t drop your addiction try to channel it into something productive. And here it is being channeled into something that can help others while I can keep doing what I like most.

The key to achieving world class expertise in any skill is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing the correct way for a total of around 10,000 hours. It’s been a while since I surpassed that number on charting. This website was built so that you don’t have to spend that amount of time staring at charts.

On a side note, on December 4th, 2014 I had a motorcycle accident which left me with a broken pelvis and hospitalised me for two weeks. On December 15th, 6 days after a major operation, I published charts in the blog from my hospital bed. This is how dedicated I am to this website. You will never walk alone.

• The daily charts and the long term charts sections are accessible only to the subscribers.
• The chart of the day section offers one arbitrarily chosen chart from the daily charts bunch for free members.
School of trading channels is offered to traders who want more than just published charts and desire to learn the technique and become a completely independent and proficient trader.

Hi, it’s Burak here. I’m in my early 40s, living in London with my wife and our little son and actively trading since 2008. Being an engineer by profession, I approach markets systematically within a certain structure. To me, engineering is about finding practical solutions to complex problems by simplifying them. This principle is our motto: Keep it simple and pure. Yes, what we do looks simple but it’s not easy. I’ve been sharing all my charts to help fellow traders through my previous blog here and I’ve been mentoring people with their trading since mid 2014. Join us at this new and more functional website. It’s gonna be fun and enriching.

  • Daily charts for day and swing traders

  • Long term charts for investors who buy and hold for more than six months

  • Tweets to provide a heads up for upcoming trade setups

  • Trade mentoring

  • Periodic video analyses

“Thank you Burak, for generously sharing your knowledge and techniques. I found it refreshing that you were so modest to speak with about something you have great skill in. With over 10 years of trading experience, I did not expect to learn much from you but I did. Probably the best trade I have made all year was trading a little bit of money for a lot of your knowledge. I paid for the class in a 30 minute trade that I took the day after our second session using one of your techniques. I hope there is a way that I can repay you for your generosity sometime in the future.”

Blake Cantley, USA

“Burak is my benchmark. Every morning I draw my own charts and I compare them with Burak’s. I strive to be smarter and to see what he doesn’t, but he is always ‘the boss’. I have been trading for a living for over ten years. Despite all my experience Burak taught me a lot. His approach is unique and has improved my trading performance. I owe him.”

Paul Maasson, Netherlands

“Trading Channels has been the best service I have ever used for trading. The best part is the simple strategies for a novice trader like me. Icing on the cake is the live tweets, end-of-day charts and your commentary. I had never been so much confident taking up trades in the past as I do now. I also like the way you encourage all the members to learn by practicing the charting along side with you.

It’s priced very nominal considering the massive profits. I’ve already recovered more than my yearly fee in just over a month. I’m a lifetime member.”

Venkat Desikan, India

“I was looking for a method to compliment my current style and provide good bias for longer term trades. The trading channels method looks simple at first glance, but applying it correctly is not trivial without proper understanding. Burak does a great job of explaining the subtleties of the rules, and starts by listening to you so that he can help adapt the method to your needs. Much of the mentoring time is spent going thru exercises to reinforce the rules and the process, and is structured around each individuals needs. After doing the mentorship, I am very happy with the results, and find the method very visually intuitive and apply it to both short and long term charts. Overall, the mentorship is a very good value, and Burak is a great mentor.”

Al Slane, USA

“Burak – Thank you for the excellent mentoring sessions which has helped me to remove a lot of the ‘clutter’ from my analysis when using support/resistance lines and channels. Prior to these sessions I would have numerous S/R and channel lines on my charts, now I plot ones which have a much higher probability of indicating the direction of the price movement. The sessions were very informative and delivered in a professional and simple manner. For me, your replies to my trade queries is where your fee was money well spent. Thanks again and I hope your new website is a success.”

Declan Dempsey, Ireland

“Excellent calls. I must say your way of trading gives structure and discipline. I’m sure you will have a bad patch at some point but so far your losing trades have been controlled and far outweighed by your winners!”

Andy Worthington, Canada

“Burak changed the way I look at charts and gave me confidence that I never really had before. His charting is unique, gives precise entries, tight stops and targets so his risk to reward is always superb. He is a great guy and explains things in a very easy way, rules are very clear and I’m astonished how I developed myself in just a few weeks. No fancy systems, indicators and lagging entries, just channels that make perfect sense. I simply can’t thank him enough for what he did for me. Thank you Burak!”

Matej Soper, Slovenia

“After few years of failed trading and blowing accounts, I discovered Trading Channels, while I was searching various trading techniques in the hopes of being able to trade with systematic setups and risk control. I started following Burak’s tweets and noticed the amazing accuracy of the analysis but still couldn’t quite understand the rules and methodology he used. We started a mentorship that was comprised of 4 online classes via Skype where Burak explained his entire method in a very understandable and passionate way. The investment I made has completely changed everything I knew about trading and price action. The trading strategy proved itself within days. In 30 days, I had taken an account that had $12,000 in profits and grew it to $45,000. With the proper implementation and guidance of his charts, I was able to produce another $33,000 in profits. Any trader looking to take their trading to a complete different level must consider a mentorship with Burak.”

“If you are looking for a holy grail to market speculation that guarantees winners every time, lifestyle shots of partying in tropical climates and footage of rented performance cars and babes in bikinis then trading channels is not for you. If however, you are looking for an honest and reliable analysis service with a solid track record, great risk reward ratios, a structured and consistent methodology, attention to detail, timely alerts, regular updates with no downtime and advice on when to cut your losses from a well humoured guy with many years of experience then this could be the holy grail you are looking for. Burak obviously takes a lot of time to work on charts and presents viable and credible opportunities across several instruments on a daily and intraday basis. His analysis and commentary are concise and do not leave room for ambiguity. Personally, my experience of his work has been fantastic, from the moment I got in touch with him to enquire about a subscription. He responds to queries promptly, he stays true to his methodology and he is not afraid to say when he is wrong. He also doesn’t go overboard with bragging when he is right either, which is great because he is right a lot. If you are thinking about trying him out, you should definitely bite the bullet and give him a shot, it could be the best trading decision you make all year!”

Nagib Meghji, UK

“I just wanted to say thank you for your service. Before I signed up earlier this year, I’d been trading for 12 years trying to find my trading style but nothing was giving me consistent results and to be honest, I lost quite a bit of money because I was reckless. This year has by far and away been the most profitable trading year of my life and it’s mostly due to your service.  In more detail, you turn the art of a trendline/channel into a science with consistent outcomes. Also, with your guidance, I’m slowly mastering the the psychological aspect of trading. You’re very methodical with your entries/exits, consistent with your stops but most importantly maximize on your winners… something I’ve been able to emulate and apply to my trading as well.  And to top it off, you are a really humble dude even though you’re probably best trader I’ve ever seen in action… and I’ve seen many.”

Peter Millington, USA

“I witnessed Burak to be a consistent and professional chartist that provides clean and solid setups based on price channels, for a really competitive price. Firstly, he presents setups for trade entries on reversal points in an authentically neat and easily understandable way with clear targets and stop loss points, often with superior risk/return ratios. His charting style is based on channels, which slightly different than trend lines. Most of the time prices appear to be respecting some line until they don’t and Burak’s approach does give an edge to figure out which have a higher probability of causing price reversals. There is a good track-record for both winning trades and also good exits on losing trades with failed setups. Secondly, he is a professional. He covers a satisfactory amount of instruments and delivers his daily charts on time. During the day he has a good amount of time online and shares many intraday updates. He is friendly and easily accessible, responds timely to any questions on both the commonly traded instruments he is charting regularly, and also for lesser traded instruments on demand. Finally, he does not only point to sweet spots, but also takes trades which is great, especially when the trades do not go into profit right away. Sometimes slight tweaks prevent early stop-losses that otherwise could end in deep profit, or targets can change in time depending on price action. What I like the most is clean, consistent performance and humbleness. He is not an arrogant self-proclaimed guru, like many on the market are. After getting used to his charting, I find it very hard to look into messy charts that have lines and curves flying out of everywhere on other sources.”

Ali Kaya, Turkey

“Burak’s channel drawing method is totally unique. He taught me how to draw channels with precision and demonstrated all his personal trading experience as well. Now I am capable of finding very high probability trades; a whole new way to spot support and resistance. Thanks for your mentoring sessions!”

Felix Thang, Hong Kong

“Burak provides very clear, easily interpreted charts for both long and short term traders. His approach and methodology helps me identify support & resistance levels for easy trading decisions. His expansive coverage of equity indices, commodities and currencies provide multiple trading opportunities daily. I have dramatically improved my win rate, and thus returns, using his service”

Anonymous private equity fund manager, USA

“After some months of subscription, I experienced his stonewall consistency, accuracy, full time availability and the straightforward and unvarnished style of communication. The next step was obvious for me with the mentoring program to understand all the details of his method. All the sessions of the mentoring gave me a deeper conviction that I found what I was really searching for. He explained me every part in clear contexts which harmonized what I experienced on the other aspects of my life. The details started to form a comprehensive system and nothing can be more convincing when you see the strong pillars of a method. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Szilard Kurunczi, Hungary

“I covered 2 years worth of subscription with a single ‘no brainer’ trade. Great service and a lots of content (way more markets than I trade!)”

Chris Rowlands, USA

“Thanks a lot for very fresh and sharp calls and prompt feedback . Fantastic.”

Vladimir Kolovrat, Hungary

“Burak posts very clear charts, posts his trades and stops and consistently makes money. Over time, you see how he does it and you start doing the same kind of charting on your own charts. You learn while you make money! What more could you want?”

Greg Kesselring, USA

“You are the best. I used several services from others. Especially, commodities no one can beat you. Thanks for everything.”

James Oh, Hong Kong

“Burak is very knowledgeable, detailed, hard working and he generates a barrage of real-time analysis every market day. And he has a cute kid. I can’t ask more than that.”

John Dycus, USA

“Simply the best trader with excellent predictions and preparations. Your posts have become my daily routine.”
