This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for GOLD. 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

  • N.A.

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
