When we search the internet for information about trading Supply and Demand, we are flooded with information.
Often you no longer know which information is the correct one. This is mainly because you see that the information you can find can be quite contradictory. There are some really good books on the market when it comes to trading Supply and Demand. I am especially a big fan of the information from Wyckoff and I have also learned a lot from it.
So I have also learned a lot from some information on the internet and after years of practice and trying I have finally developed a correct Supply and Demand strategy which gives me a very good win rate. In the end, after I became successful in trading, I wrote a well-organized book myself and later an extensive S upply and Demand course. I first wrote the book and I described a number of topics well and through a clear and useful step-by-step plan. Not only do you learn everything about Supply and Demand and how to trade it, but also various other topics are covered in my book.
For example, how you can use Support and Resistance in combination with trading Supply and Demand. What should you pay attention to as the price approaches the Supply or Demand zone? When is a Supply of Demand zone less reliable and is the price likely to break through the zone? And how do you deal with it in trading? Where should your Stop loss be and what should you pay attention to in the event of a possible entry?
And of course this is not all, we will also talk about the candles and what some candles mean or patterns and how you recognize them. In any case, you will learn the basics to an advanced level. There is also an online course available where you can also hand in homework assignments and get tips from me and so keep track of your own progress.
Well I have already told you a lot about what you can find in my Supply and Demand book and course.
You will often see price reverse from old zones, yes. But, it is not the zone causing the reversal. It is probably some other technical factor. You probably already know this; but, I thought I would put it in since it is a mistake I see many new supply and demand traders make all-too often. It is all- too-common for price to spike through the edge of a supply or demand zone before reversing. If you put your stop at the edge rather than leaving a slight gap, the spike will take you out and make you miss what could be a successful trade.
Just when it looked like price was about to reverse from this zone, price spiked through the upper edge. Bye, bye stop loss! To add further insult, price reversed in a big way soon after, meaning you missed out on a great trade as well as losing money. How big should that gap be? In my experience, 15 — 20 pips should be sufficient for most zones.
Add a few pips for higher time-frame zones: think 4-hour, daily. Remove a few for low time-frame zones: 5 minute, 15 minute, etc. Another big mistruth you will hear in the supply and demand community is the idea zones have the power to cause reversals more than once like support and resistance levels. The zone loses its power and validity. The only exception to this rule is if a zone forms at the top or bottom of a consolidation. These zones can cause price to reverse two or three times.
However, once the consolidation is over, the zone loses all its power and probably will not cause another reversal. Remember: the banks cause supply and demand zones to form because they cannot get all their positions placed in one go. Soon after placing what they can, they bring price back to the same point, the Supply of Demand zone, to get their remaining positions placed. That way, they can place the trades within their position at a similar price. That allows them to make a similar level of profit from each trade with a similar amount of risk.
After bringing price back to get their remining trades placed a first time, why bring it back again? They would only bring it back the first time if they knew enough orders were free to get their remaining positions placed. Sure, price will return and reverse from the odd zone more than once, but it is not often. I have used the strategy for a long time.
It is a core component of how I trade, and view the markets. That said, it was impossible for me to cover everything about supply and demand trading in this one writing. So below, I have put together a list of my Supply and Demand articles for you to add to the knowledge you have gained from this writing. So, I created this book to clear them up. While Sam Seiden gets credit for coming up with Supply and Demand, many of the ideas he promotes about the strategy are flat out wrong and at odds with how the market really works.
These two types of zones perform very different to one another due to what causes them to form. Read More. On top of two types of zones, they can also form for two different reasons: either the banks placing trades, or taking profits off trades. Each type of zone has its own quirks and characteristics which, if you know, can help you trade them and make fewer mistakes.
In the case of supply and demand, there are 3 key mistakes traders make over and over again that you MUST avoid to become successful. When you fail to incorporate the nearby rises or declines when drawing the zone, you end up missing trades that otherwise would have been successful. For all other zones though, only take the trade the first time price returns to a zone. If you learn from the people who actually use them in their own trading you should have a decent chance.
Stick with the timeframe you trade off for now. You can use a lower time-frame but I need to explain it more, as there are a few things you need to be aware of. I have again some ideas how to read price. The profit-taking level should be the closest zone on the higher time-frame. So if you trade off the 1 hour, you need to take profits once price reaches the next zone on the daily. If you trade off the 1 min or 5 min, take profits once price reaches the 1-hour zone.
Wait for signs of a reversal first, and then take profits if you see something developing. Great post, you have taught me how to draw supply and demand zones. I have more idea now how to draw these zones. Hi great article! I just found about this website and it is really helpful. Do you have any tips about profit-taking strategies you use? Do you take some profit at the first trouble area or do you just wait for it to hit the target?
I have been having an issue where I tend exit the trade pretty early so I usually only earn around 2Rs per trade. I feel like you never know if the price is gonna reverse at the first trouble area. Did you ever has this issue when you were learning?
I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest. Hello, Can you please explain more about the curve? I trade the daily time frame and using H1 for confirmation when the price reaches the daily zone. It kind of narrows your view of the market and what zones are important, I think. As for daily zones, you can drop down to a lower timeframe if you want, it depends on your preferences really.
Please what is your take on this? Thank you. Yes, you can trade them at anytime, Steve. Hi Liam thank you for the quality lesson above. Cheers, Liam. Part 1: Overview Of Supply And Demand Trading Before we get to grips with supply and demand as a strategy, we need to talk about the supply and demand as a concept. In economics, the law of supply and demand determines the price people pay for a product.
Sound familiar? So, for example… When you buy a house, supply and demand determines the price, which is governed by various economic factors. One of the biggest factors is birth rate, the number of people being born. When price rises, demand outstrips supply. When price falls, supply outweighs demand. Supply outstrips demand for a while, as more and more people decide to sell. They see price fall, so they decide to sell themselves. The answer lies in what causes supply and demand to change in the first place.
On a chart, that process looks like this… First: the banks place what positions they can, and price shoots away. Then: the banks can allow price to fully reverse, and a large move ensues. These are called supply and demand zones. Price moves from supply zones to demand zones and back: over and over again. Amazing, right? Demand Zones Demand Zones represent points where the banks have placed a significant number of buy positions. These are the support levels of supply and demand trading.
The point where price reverses is the demand zone. Supply Zones On the other side of the fence, we have supply zones. The point where price reverses, usually a prominent swing high, is the supply zone. If price returns here, it has a high probability of falling again.
These zones always form mid-move, either from the banks taking profits or closing trades. On to reversal zones now… Reversal Zones: Rally — Base — Drop and Drop — Base — Rally zones Form, when price reverses direction, Base, then Reverse and set off a new swing These zones form when one major swing changes to the other, usually caused by the banks buying or selling large quantities of currency. Starting out, your goal is to simply gain experience finding and trading zones.
Finding and Drawing Supply and Demand Zones: If you want to be successful trading supply and demand, you MUST master the finding of high probability zones and correctly drawing them on the chart. Well, what does that look like on a price chart? Typically: a sharp rise, or a sharp decline, appears in price. So, to find supply and demand zones look for sharp rises and declines in price. But what causes the imbalance? Why has price suddenly shot higher?
Because the banks have decided to enter a large buy position! To locate Demand Zones, then, look for sharp rises… These reveal the banks have decided to take some action in the market, like place buy trades, which means price has a high probability of reversing once it returns to the source of the rise. And with the zones marked, this is how it looks… Right away, you can see how almost all the zones resulted in price reversing or at least caused a reaction of some sort.
Also, notice how the zones are drawn from the base? This is the point where demand exceeded supply and price shot up. If we mark the zones on the chart, this is how it looks. Keep in mind: Zones are formed from ALL rises and declines , sharp or not. This rise seems good enough. If you have drawn it correctly, it should look like this.
Simple: draw the zone from low to the point where price took off. Nine times out of ten, that will suffice as a valid zone. As with demand zones, we always draw supply zones from the base or source of the move. That is the point where the banks placed their sell positions. With the zone drawn, it should like this… You can see the top of the rectangle rests on the swing high and the lower edge sits on the open of the last small candle before price fell sharply, which was a bear candle in this example.
Look for the first big candle in the decline. That will give you a valid zone, just with a slightly bigger risk due to the increased size. How to Trade Supply and Demand Zones As trading strategies evolve, new ways of trading them get created. Supply and Demand has also gone through this process, and today, there are TWO different ways of trading the zones… Price Action entry, and Set and Forget entry.
Each method has pros and cons, and it is possible to be successful with either. I have made money with both in my time trading Supply and Demand. Set and Forget Entry Popularized by Sam Seiden, the set and forget entry is the original way of trading supply and demand. With the set and forget method, you trade the zones using limit orders. Now, just wait to see what happens… In this case, the trade was successful: price came up, spiked the upper edge triggering our order , before reversing and moving lower.
More on this in a minute. Price Action Entry This is my preferred way of trading supply and demand, and the method most pro traders utilise. Rather than place limit orders at the edge of zones, you wait for candle patterns. So, the price action gives you more confirmation price will reverse. This way we know our trade has a better chance of being successful and making money. Now, we wait to see if it reverses. And in this case, it does… A few hours after the engulfing pattern appears, price reverses and exits the zone.
Taking profits really comes down to personal preference. So, in our example, I would take profits like this… I also use the same method to move my stop to break-even. That way, I reduce risk AND secure profits. Why the Price Action Entry is Better I am not going to knock the set and forget entry too much, because it is a decent way of trading supply and demand, and you can be quite successful with it. When it comes to trading the zones, you need to stick to using price action.
The problem with using limit orders is a problem we price-action traders know all too well: Confirmation. Price blasts through zones frequently, usually without stopping. With the price action entry, however, things are different. I am going to tell you right now, in fact, I insist, that is complete hogwash! THE FACT IS: It is one of the biggest lies in the supply and demand community, and if everyone would stop and think about it for a minute, they would understand why it simply does not make sense!
As we all know, supply and demand zones are formed by the banks: The banks need to be buying and selling with huge orders. That is why price returns and reverses from the source of sharp rises and declines. They would NOT want to wait a long time!
Their reason for entering may change. Of course not, the whole market could have changed by then! Really, they would want price to return ASAP. Always Put Your Stop Slightly Outside the Zone You probably already know this; but, I thought I would put it in since it is a mistake I see many new supply and demand traders make all-too often.
When you trade a zone, put your stop slightly above or below the opposite edge. DO NOT put it on the edge itself to skimp on the risk. You can see that happen here… Just when it looked like price was about to reverse from this zone, price spiked through the upper edge.
SO: always leave a little gap between your stop price and the edge of the zone. That should give you headroom to avoid any random spikes while still keeping risk low. And again, this is not true, not even close. The probability price will reverse again in the future is extremely low.
If you think about why a zone forms, It is obvious why they lose power after one touch. With this in mind, why would the banks want price to return a zone a second or third time? This makes it pointless to bring it back more times.

Trading is all about putting your emotions aside to prevent them from affecting your trading decisions. A trading plan and a good trade management plan is executed and managed by a human being made of emotions, so unless you control your emotions, success in trading will be unreachable no matter how much you want it or how good your edge is. No need to be in front of the computer all day long Worried that you will not be able to learn how to trade or manage your trades because you have a full or part time job?
Your job is not a handicap, it is actually a blessing. You only need 30 to 60 minutes a day to do your multiple timeframe analysis, set your trades and go to your work place, it is as simple as that. Having a job is a positive thing, it will help you to detach from the charts and let the trade breathe and play out.
You do not need to spend hours a day analyzing the markets to become a profitable and successful trader. The type of trader you are is directly related to the timeframe sequence that you will choose to trade. It will determine the type of trades that you take, how long you will hold them and how you would manage them.
Once you have decided which type of trader you are by determining the timeframe sequence that you trade and which timeframe sequence fits your personality, you should accept that and not deviate from it because otherwise you will always be second guessing your trade decisions which will lead to emotional distress. You will only take the trades that your chosen sequence allows you to take. You should not look at different sequences and worry about missing trades. You should ignore them as you will have enough trades per month with the sequence that you are trading.
The greater the imbalance, the greater the move in price. Most traders are not aware of the power that trading a supply and demand trading strategy can have. Most of us are really good applying supply and demand logic when we want to buy some food at the supermarket, buy a bottle of wine or a car. Would you buy your favourite bottle of wine worth 5 euros a bottle for 15 euros? Of course you would not.
Why would then most retailers buy a Forex currency pair or a stock when price is so high? Ask yourself that question. Supply and demand together with price action is one of the best edges you could ever possibly have. It is very easy to get lost and distracted by reading dozens of books and looking at internet resources that push fancy, colourful and lagging indicators of which only tell you what has already happened.
RSI, CCI, Bollinger Bands and a long plethora of indicators are just telling us what is already known to big investors that trade supply and demand, they just buy low and sell high, it is as simple as that. There is no cable you can plug in your neck to learn how to trade or gain the professional mindset required to become profitable.
There is no holy grail. If you believe supply and demand is the way you want to trade, you must work very hard. Allow for years to learn the rules and gain confidence in them. Learning how to trade is much more difficult than any university career, be realistic!

If you see the potential to make money trading but for some reason still can't make money trading then there are other issues at work like trading plan, emotions, a fix set of rules, other traders supporting you, etc. The only reason why a price moves in any, and all markets, is because of the imbalance in supply and demand. Why do imbalances occur? They have the ability and capacity to move and change the markets with thousands of orders- These orders create the so called supply and demand imbalances.
Supply is simply the amount available, while demand is the amount that is wanted. Supply is the amount available at a particular price, while demand is the amount that is wanted or desired at a specific price. The opposite of this shows that as prices increase, we see demand reduces.
Buyers will demand more when prices are lower. Read more about it in the community. Now you will think differently to the previous week. You will cloth, a pair or shoes or a house. You go to the market and see the price of the steak buy any! As the price of steak lowered, how valuable that steak might be. You begin to look at demand increased, not only for you, but the market in general. Not every behind the traded assets.
Whenever one economy wants to trade with replacement products because they could not afford the new another economy provided different currencies are used a higher price. This is a living example of a supply and demand SD Forex exchange will be required. More or less, traded by professionals and not by retailers. A hunter has all sort the charts will look the same, but individual bars can be different of traps to capture its prey, so do the big institutions.
We are and price patterns in particular can vary a little from broker to trying to combat professional hunters, as retailers we are their broker. Ultimately, the various markets created by the brokers prey. In the end you have to trade what you see on your charts and ignore everything else. What we perceive as the personality of a currency pair is just manipulation of that pair. Some instruments have lower liquidity some Forex cross pairs and exotics , zones are overshot and then they work great.
This is why using multiple timeframes happening right now for every single combinations like Weekly, Daily and 15 minutes charts make no instrument that exits. Price is fractal. Fractal meaning that sense, the scale factor is broken. Multiple timeframe analysis is needed to make a high probability decision. The best combinations for trading multiple timeframe analysis are those that use a common multiplier, in our case four to five.
Any multiplier or scale can be used but we need to keep it consistent over the timeframes we select for our sequence. Remember that Forex is the biggest market in the world, it's traded by professionals and not by retailers. A hunter has all sort of traps to capture its prey, so do the big institutions.
