Making Cash In A Market Crash

Last week we saw some major moves in the market and many of them were around the Brexit market news. The UK held a referendum on whether or not they should remain in  the EU and talks had been going on for weeks about the uncertainty, especially in the markets. One thing was certain and that was that there would be an impact on the markets. Lots of pips were made but it was all based on supply and demand not the news. Check out the details below:

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not consider the news when trading. I trade based on what I see on the charts. I heard some traders say that because of the likely volatility that would be in the markets during Brexit week, they would stay out all together as it was safer.

Trading is all about taking risks, so as long as the risks are within certain boundaries like a knowledge of supply and demand with a solid trading plan then there shouldn't be a problem.

Here's some of my analysis.



Below is a weekly chart of the GA. You'll notice the supply level marked in red and the demand level lower down marked with solid and dashed lines in blue. You will also see the blue rectangle in between though it may not be clear why on this time frame.

Price had left supply and the path was clear for a ride back down. You can see that price however stopped and begain to rally. If you look at the daily chart you'll see why:

Price hit demand and began to rally. The plan was to wait for price to rally up before signalling a move back down to the weekly demand below at which point I'd look to short. This is what I discussed with the premium members.


As the week went on, price did as I thought it might. Price rallied up and indicated that it may fall so I looked to enter.

There's a very good reason why this was all I needed to see for an entry so when I saw it, I took the trade according to my rules. I didn't know what would happen next, I didn't have any inside information, I didn't know there would be a crash. All I knew is a setup came up that met my rules and I was prepared to take the trade whatever the outcome. That is all we can do.

2016-06-23 GA Short H1


Boom! Over 1000 pips in a single trade.

2016-06-24 GA Short H1 dukas

That wasn't my only winner this week but it was definitely the biggest. I did have a loser too but that pales into insignificance when compared to the gains.

I won't go into all the details on the other trades but I will show you these:

2016-06-24 EN Short H1 dukas

2016-06-24 AC Long H1 dukas

I don't know what else to say really. Stick to the plan and the wins will be steady. Occasionally there will be some monster gains too.

    I am a new trader.wanna learn more about supply and demand.still unclear how you draw the supply box in blue colour.

      Hi Muhammad. For demand, I look for a base that forms before big rally then I’ll mark it with the blue rectangle. For supply I look for a base that forms before a big drop and mark that with a red rectangle. Focus on the ones where you can see a big move. Those are often the key levels.

    Hi Joe,
    Can you please let me know confirmation rules and on which time frame you look for entry.

    • Joe Wright on December 15, 2019 at 00:53

      Hi Muneer, I normally use the 30m timeframe for entries now, once the H4 aligns with a daily or weekly key level
