Zeus' Strike And The Alignment Of The Stars

I had my fair share of profitable adventures with my linemen when
 dealing with 3rd or 2nd Liners. And I think it's about time I wrote
 and shared it to you guys.

Let's start it off with 

"The Zeus' Strike!"
The only lightning strike you'll be wanting to catch.

Now whenever my linemen, the moving averages, like the 20MA or the 50MA go below prices, 
I noticed that most of the time, a short term rally happens.

But when the 100MA dives under the prices,
It takes the rally into another whole new rampaging level!

Now I don't know how you call it in your village, but I call it Zeus'
 Strike because of that Blue 100MA that kinda reminds me of Zeus'
 Lightning bolt strikes that sends things flying whenever it hits the ground.

"Smite that downtrend my brother and
bring my ipitsky position to life!" 

Just like this Fulgarite:

Posted by Ken Smith from Australia

A lighting strike in the sand has melted the sand along the fingers of electricity
and then wind has blown the sand away leaving incredible sculptures.

I heard these things are worth a lot of moolah!

Well . . .

"Damn Right Mortals"

So when you see that 100MA getting close to the prices,
you better be locked and loaded.

. . .

On to the next shall we?

"The Alignment Of The Stars" 

I'm sure this isn't the first time you've heard about this right?
I've heard and seen this a lot in movies. And they say that this
 phenomenon usually brings "Good Fortune"

When you see the 3 moving averages in this order : 
where 20MA > 50MA > 100MA,

EEI Daily Chart

That means the Alignment of the Stars have favored the Bulls.
And we can all sit tight and start counting our growing profits.

These lines and parameters are the Trend Follower's Favorite.

"The gods have given us an UPTREND!"

. . .

But I also remember some scenes where the alignment caused


"Look my king! The stars are foretelling of
some shiny Mayan asses getting whopped later!"

NI Daily Chart

"We're Screwed!"

You can Call this "The Reverse Alignment"
And yes, there's also A Reverse Zeus' Strike.

But when dealing with 3rd liners (and some jockeyed 2nd liners), 
it is sometimes important that you also watch its weekly chart. 
Not all 3rd liners can sustain big and long runs. 

So by doing this, you'll be able to get hints if a Zeus' Strike 
or The Alignment Of The Stars is a sign of more God Smitin',
 Mayan Ass Whopping, Price Action in the days to come!

ZS = Zeus' Strike

Rare Instance When ZS and AOTS 
happen in both Weekly and Daily Charts

NI's Weekly AOTS = Top!

Additional Notes

In the case of Blue Chips and fundamentally sound 2nd Liners,
ZS and AOTS in the Daily Chart is enough.

  1. Good article as expected zeefreaks :D Do you have a term for the reverse Zeus strike phenomenon?

  2. Ha ha ha. I enjoyed reading it. But you have very good observations.

  3. This is called a crossover technique by some technical analysts

  4. thank you for sharing..

  5. Sir, how about FOOD as of today (6mar13)? will it qualify under your strat?

  6. As usual, brilliant!

  7. Will test buy using this. Thanks Z!

  8. Hi ZF small question .. noticed the charts are using 2 SMAs and 1 EMA ... is this a variety of the 20 SMA>50 SMA>100SMA? What would be the settings?

  9. Boss Zee, ano gamit nyo na browser para lumabas ang COL chart? Sinubukan ko firefox lumabas naman. Kaso hindi ko makita kung paano gawing intraday. Wala kasi akong makita sa taas ng chart kng daily, weekly or monthly.

  10. Sir zee, I read from your previous post that not all ZS are sustainable.. are there parameters to look for to help verify that when a ZS will be successful? thanks sir zee!

  11. Hi Sir Zee,

    Kung same day ba mag ZS, advisable b na bumili kaagad or wait muna sa closing kung ok si ZS before magenter?

    1. Buy before ZS, sell on ZS spike.

    2. Hi Sir Zee Freaks, ilang %up po ang kinoconsider nyo na ZS Spike?

    3. hi zee! kng buy before zs, panu po malalaman bago pa ito mngyari? kpag ng close b price above 20ma or pg ngcross ang 20ma sa 50ma?salamat

  12. Clear on the ZS ... not sure about the spike part ... can you elaborate? - Balatsibuyas

  13. sir ZF, what are the MA settings for weekly charts? thanks!

  14. Hi sir ZF. for AOTS ba may times kasi na parang di pa umaangat yung price.If ever ba hold lang? may false AOTS rin ba?

  15. Thank you for sharing this sir! I am truly grateful in learning these 2 terminologies! :D

  16. wow, great one.. im learning a lot.. thank you

  17. ang galing, may natutunan na nman ako

  18. ZF thanks for sharing, I have the same question as already posted above. Can you explain ZS spike or the time you actually sell? Thank you very much.

  19. Hi ZF, Does AOTS and ZS works on all time charts (minutes,weeks,months) ?

    1. That's for you to find out. Happy backtesting. :D

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Alright, will do on the weekend. Will I get my mind blown? hehe :D
      Thanks By the way.

    4. Hi ZF thanks for the great lessons here. ask ko lang kung may chances ba na ma-ignore nung market yung stock na nag-aots, dahil sa ibang active stocks? posible bang mag-fail yung aots, i mean ma-mis align ulit?

  20. Hi ZF, Maraming salamat po. Since last year paulit-ulit ko na binasa at piag-aralan at backtest itong AOTS at Zeus' Strike. This January 2017 sinubukan and i'm very happy it works. MARAMING SALAMAT ZF!

  21. Hi po Sir ZF, do you use po ZA and AOTS sa intra day? salamat po

  22. Pano malalaman ang ma ng isang stock na gusto mo

  23. This is brilliant Sir Zee. I started learning this field and your teaching is awesome. Don't stop spreading tips and tricks for us to able to succeed too. God bless you sir. sanay ulanin ka ng maraming blessings.

  24. (noob question) sir ano po yung backtesting at pano sya gawin?

  25. How are you able to keep posting like this and be so imaginative in your writings (based on my observation). You write very good and can relate daily things and quotes in life (which I usually just ignore) to stocks :O

  26. Sir may tanong lang ako....ano ba dapat mauna? AOTS ba o ZS?

  27. hi sir ZF, i would just want to ask. The additional charts below is that weekly or daily? because the dates are daily but there are a lot of candles. Thank you po.

  28. saan ko po ilalagay ang stop loss?

    1. hmm... for me it's should be the previous resistance level. ZS is just a short term spike in price and the mindset should be sell at highs.

  29. you could have added the ODEN stike as in 200ma

  30. Thank you sir zeefreaks, for sharing your knowledge about trading, GOD bless you always at sana mas marami pa kayong matulungan na mga newbie... and finally nagkaron na ng mukha yung imagination ko kung sino talaga ang nasa likod ni zeefreaks :) :)

  31. This becomes my favorite.. I wish i could master this . Keep inspiring newbies like me Lodi Zeefreaks.

  32. AOTS happens if the price breaks the previous high candle, supported by rsi 70above and big volume. which will give you a entry point?am i correct sir?

  33. I've made an online screener inspired by Sir Zeefreaks' ZS and AOTS. Please visit Thank You!

  34. Hi nabasa ko sa comment sa taas, buy before ZS, pero how would we know kung malapit na mag ZS? How to be your student po?

    1. You can join trading for rookies by ZF sa FB.

  35. Im learning a lot! 2021 na! im here to learn ZF technique which is effective tlga!! thanks to this sir ZF! gonna read a lot on this blogspot!

  36. Gising pa fr this.. hehe thank you for sharing your knowledge sir Zee. Stay healthy and Godbless ♥
