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 above last month’s / week’s body and range
  • Price trad­ing with­in W1 supply

    • Wide val­ue cre­at­ed yes­ter­day slight­ly over­lap­ping the pre­vi­ous high
  • Nar­ra­tive
    • D1 Phase 2
    • Price trad­ing deep­er with­in D1 QHi with no test of D1-C‑S 16250 (yet)
    • Trend is UP 3/3
    • Price trad­ing at old H4 supply
    • Asia trad­ed high­er after trad­ing down form­ing a Neu­tral Day
    • Mod­er­ate Imbalance
    • Prev. Day Exceed­ed ADR by 1.07, pos­si­ble momen­tum behind the move
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)

  • Hypo 4
    • Auc­tion Fade Short

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • Not favored in equities
  • D1-C‑S 16250
  • W1-C‑S 16102.51

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 15850.32
  • D1-C‑D 15393.40

Mind­ful Trad­ing (lack of sleep?)

  • Feel­ing Okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • No momen­tum trades on Non-Farm Fridays
    • Total of 15 trades by the end of the month, can take 2 a day (not in the same prod­uct at the same time) 
    • No ear­ly exits, either hit SL or 2R target
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
  • Process
    • Keep trade review com­ments short
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
