This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for DAX. This prep builds off of my week­ly trade plan I made here:

The pur­pose of a pre­mar­ket prep is to find setups with­in my week­ly trade plan bias

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • MN made a LL but is cur­rent­ly trad­ing with­in last month’s body again
  • Price trad­ing below W1 Bear Engulf with con­tin­u­a­tion low­er fol­lowed by a reac­tion off W1 VWAP in UT trad­ing above W1 demand.

    • H4 con­sol­i­da­tion and Break out from H4 VWAP in DT, cur­rent­ly con­sol­i­dat­ing at a pre­vi­ous H4 base level. 
  • Trend: H4 Down, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is UP 2/3
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue cre­at­ed above the pre­vi­ous but still with­in the range of the 2‑day range
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 20197
    • ASR: 16727

  • LN open
    • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
  • Open dis­tance to value
    • 0.72xASR
  • Nar­ra­tive
    • Large Imbal­ance. Price opened above yesterday’s high. H4 con­sol­i­da­tion break­ing high­er. IB tra­versed high­er, tak­ing out an old H4 Base sup­ply lev­el cur­rent­ly hit­ting D1 QHi. Yesterday’s range exceed­ed x1.32ADR although pos­si­ble upward pres­sure through D1 V‑shaped correction.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1
    • Mean Rever­sion, pos­si­ble rever­sal with­in IBR, less like­ly a Failed Auc­tion Short
  • Hypo 2
    • Trend Con­tin­u­a­tion, sus­tained auc­tion long, pos­si­ble pull­back from with­in IBR, risky due to trad­ing at D1 QHi and W1/D1 Supply
  • Hypo 3
    • Auc­tion Fade Short, vari­a­tion to Hypo 2
  • Hypo 4

  • W1-C‑D 15401.45
  • D1-C‑D 15276.33
  • D1-C‑D 15127.39

Mind­ful Trad­ing (lack of sleep?)

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • No momen­tum trades on Non-Farm Fridays
    • Total of 13 trades by the end of the month
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times work­ing out at home + manda­to­ry cardio
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • With­out forc­ing a trade: aim to take 1 trade a day, if pos­si­ble 2. 
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
