I have made an effort to explain the actual mechanics of the “SM market manipulation” and the logic of their algorithms in a more structured and understandable manner. I have tried to do so by formulating general “principles” such as the “time and range principle”, the “DM tolerance principle”, the “pre-stop run-countermove principle” etc. I have also made various illustrations and presentations that will help you to understand how the “market causality” unfolds.
This content allows you to better understand “how FX works” these days; in particular if you watch it before and after analyzing the documented live trades.
In order to be able to share all that with you, I had to go through a multi-year process of research, testing, experimenting and analysis. Basically, one could say that I “reverse-engineered” the SM Cartel’s algos.
You should understand that the content shown here represents less than 35% of the overall content I developed. Advanced topics, such as the “meta-levels” will only be available to clients. However, even this content shown should help you to completely change your view on modern FX markets.
This content and more will also be included in my first book (link). I would recommend to anyone who is involved with FX markets to read it; since this could improve your changes of at least reducing your exposure to some of the “SM Algo tricks”.

Still, the tools provided cannot and never will replace a complete, adequately tested trading system or investment approach.

Before deciding to trade foreign exchange and derivative products or to invest in vehicles that do so (directly or indirectly), you should carefully consider your objectives, financial situation, and level of experience and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some, all or more of your funds deposited and therefore you should never speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the different risk factors associated with foreign exchange trading and derivative products, if in any doubt, seek advice from an independent advisor. The list of risk factors presented within this text may by no means be complete. Please note that any investments related to FX involve significantly high risks and the value of an investment may fall as well as rise, and you may not get back the amount invested.
Active trading approaches as well as trading on margin or investing in a vehicle that trades on margin, carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all individuals. Please always check with your own financial advisor before considering any trading or investment decisions.

You must understand that if the market moves opposite your open positions, your chances of losing your initial deposit and other funds intended to maintain your open positions is very high. You are fully responsible for the use of your own funds and accounting for respective risks.

It is not in the control of SME Ltd. whether users of the tools offered apply reasonable risk management rules to their potential engagements in the FX markets. You are responsible, in full, for any losses you may or may not experience while using or not using any of the tools offered by SME Ltd.

CFTC RULE 4.41 Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
