The 3S

3S is my priority when execute a trade. What is it?

1) System - such as technical , fundamental ,intermarket etc.. (used for entry purpose)
2) Style - such as martiangle, layers, hedge, partial etc.. (used to manage for those entry)
3) Stoploss (used to protect equity)

System & Style can be choose differently at any condition that suit the current situation.
The 3S applied for every entrance of market. Once the style applied (personally i use partial) then we
can look for other opportunity and much more benefit:
Topdown analysis

Not everybody like to do this but i'm always do before any entry been made. Simplicity of analysis. I did
not rely on indicator for my analysis just sometimes use MACD to see a divergence. Topdown give an
information about the price. When the rule say sell at supply & buy that demand, obey the rule. Start
from big timeframe to the smallest you can get the idea
How to control emotion in trading
It is a subjective topic but i conclude as what i have decide. The best i can do to control my emotion is
with a FREE RIDE . It was combination of partial close and stoploss. Explaination in detail
Emotion control with Free Ride
Emotion is the main factor blowing in our head and can be disturbing. A one solution that we made
years ago is FREE RIDE. To overcome an emotion, it need an action. FREE RIDE is a combination of Partial
Close and Positive Stoploss. Yes we always greed in executing an entry. The FREE RIDE offers you a great
opportunity to re-entry as long the FREE RIDE is in the mode. Below is the rule of FREE RIDE :

1) Stoploss is a must for every trade

2) When the trade gain of minimum risk:reward 1:1 or 30 pips the FREE RIDE is applied.
3) Close partially for example volume 1.0 lot trade, you can close 0.50 lot.
4) Move stoploss to positive or +1 pips after the partial close.
5) Let the price move to the desired target or let it hit your stoploss.
6) You can open trade again after FREE RIDE applied.

It offers you a freedom of trading. When FREE RIDE applied means a money already in your bank.

Below is the step how to close partial :

Sample of trading with FREE RIDE :
A little rules
This is the golden rules that should apply in all trades :

1) Buy at demand
2) Sell at supply
3) Always look to the left
4) Always use stoploss
The movement of price
There are 3 movement that price does :
1) Move up - demand exceed supply = RALLY
2) Move down - supply exceed demand = DROP
3) sideway - supply equal to demand = BASE

Each of the movement described as below :

A Base description :
1) Base is a low volatility area (small movement)
2) Base is a high liquidity area (many transactions order)
3) Base is a low spread area (spread low as huge transactions done)
4) Base is a balance area ( where buyers meet sellers / negotiations / sideway)
5) Base known as 4 :
- RBR (Rally-Base-Rally) Demand zone
- DBR (Drop-Base-Rally) Demand zone
- DBD (Drop-Base-Drop) Supply zone
- RBD (Rally-Base-Drop) Supply zone
Balance Versus Imbalance :
Balance = Low volatility, high liquidity, low spread
Imbalance = High volatility, low liquidity, high spread
During the formation of a base, we consider price to be in balance. This is because there is not a
significant difference in the amount of buy or sell orders in this area thus price doesn’t rally or drop as
long as this balance exists. For price to start moving in a direction there needs to be more of one type of
order (buys or sells) than the other causing price to rally or to drop, it is at this point a base is confirmed
and a decision that price was either too cheap or too expensive has been made. When price moves
away from a base there are naturally unfilled orders which remain, so when price returns to the base in
the future we can expect the remaining orders to be triggered causing a reaction in price. It is this what
supply/demand traders try and take advantage.
How to draw supply & demand zone
There is subjective in drawing supply & demand zone. Subjective because it can be draw from
body to shadow or shadow to shadow. Here is the guide that been practice according to 6
conditions of candlesticks:






Ain Ilustration Art

Supply & Demand Area

Potential setup

Stoploss placement
Series of supply consumed. Price awaiting on right demand to hike
Series of demand consumed. Price awaiting on right supply to drop
What you can get from HHLL or LLHH
In order to validate HH or LL , the Decision should be broken


The best i have practiced is to monitor PA at the previous supply or demand zone. PA that i refer is QM
(HHLL) at up/under level. I don't care where the price go (imbalance area)
I do care when the price came back (balance area)

There is no validity of the zone..that zone is a zone..once the PA perform, than its traded
Did u know? >> HHLL - Namely Can-Can
Its all about The BASE
To fill the big orders, manipulation is essential :
Know the order will lead to the big money.

Refresh - A little rules for supply & demand trader :

Sample of Rule
Forex is about risk & reward. Nothin above it. Again, an example of my trade..#3S
BEWARE!!! Fellow traders, this is not HHLL. Sometimes you may get lucky but not most of the time.
Checkout the real HHLL.

It should be like this

Step by step on how i use. Do refer to my blog about 3S that i use.
Simple little strategy
Everybody have their own strategy either individual or institutional trader. As for me, there is No PA
Without Engulfing. Two kind of movement price usually do are Consuming or Engulfing .

If consumed occur it gave 2 signals either it will reverse or it will engulf. But engulfed on the other hand
tell us the price is concerning to go lower or higher to find a new base or liquidity. Therefore, watch
closely when price pullback & give the best shot by considering your risk to reward ratio
Next is DP or Decision Point with a Great Imbalance. The best decision point is always at where the
price drop or hike with a great imbalance (significant move). This will always causing a gap. When the
price it carefully
The other main factor is Freshness of the zone. My entry always on the fresh zone because there is a
liquidity there. Price will attract to the fresh zone because of liquidity.

This is generally my strategy & of course for other factor like timing etc will explain later.
3 movement pattern
Price regularly make this 3 movement pattern. Spike or bank intervention is another things.

1) Shoot - strong/quick/sudden/wide gap

2) Stack - medium/moderate/expected/medium gap
3) Compress - weak/slow/manipulation/no gap

* please refer gap explained on page freshness & gap.

A shoot always have a middle gap & if this gap engulfed, the price usually went to base.
A stack always make price have to consumed step by step (like a trend)
A compress have 2 options either shoot up or down. Don't think that if compress down price will shoot
down. It may have another order in the opposite side.

What is a touch trader ?
Somebody just don't really get what touch trader is. I trade at a very minimum stoploss with a huge
profit. There is a loss & i can't make all trade as a no loss trade. It takes a vital topdown analysis to grant
a precise entry. I can get a zero floating entry & thats the fact. A lot of practice needed until one can
adapt the style of touch trader. I mean a lot of drawings on supply & demand to find those decision. I
just post a simple chart on every post ...wonder why? I want everybody to learn by thinking. I wont give
a fish, i'd rather hand over some fishing rod.
