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

  • Price trad­ing with­in last week’s body and W1-C‑S 15824.94

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 demand giv­ing D1-C‑S 15824.94 and price reached D1-C‑S 15887.25 BASE
    • H4 Bull Engulf at W1-C‑D 15660.10 with con­tin­u­a­tion high­er acti­vat­ing swing
    • H4 QLo reject­ed with no arrival at H4 QHi (yet)
  • Trend: H4 Down, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is UP 2/3
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2‑day over­lap­ping val­ues cre­at­ed with price cur­rent­ly trad­ing above it
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 13407

      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 15653.81


  • LN open
    • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
  • Open dis­tance to value
    • 1.96xASR
  • Nar­ra­tive
    • Huge Imbal­ance at the open. IB tra­versed down against Asia and FF pulling back to H4 VWAP. IBR 1.25xASR wide. Pos­si­bly devel­op­ing a H4 Bear Engulf with devel­op­ing H4 c‑sup near D1 Base lev­el there could be some weak­ness with­in IBR if the day con­tin­ues on respon­sive activity. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1
    • Mean Rever­sion, sus­tained auc­tion down, although due to wide IBR prob­a­bly not likely
  • Hypo 2
    • Failed Auc­tion Long, Pos­si­ble Strength from with­in IBR
  • Hypo 3
    • Auc­tion Fade Long, vari­a­tion to Hypo 1
  • Hypo 4
    • Weak­ness from with­in IBR, pull­back to devel­op­ing H4 c‑sup 

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion Rule in effect

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • Not favored in equities
  • D1-C‑S 15966.51

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 15824.94
  • W1-C‑D 15660.10

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
