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 below last month’s body but with­in range
    • Pos­si­bly devel­op­ing a MN Three Out­side Down
    • Price reversed to devel­op­ing MN C‑sup
  • Price trad­ing with­in last week’s body after duck­ing below with­in range
    • Price pro­ceed­ed to trade high­er and is cur­rent­ly trad­ing with­in last week’s sell­ing wick
    • Sell­ers came in and price trad­ing with­in body again

Addi­tion­al notes

  • 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
    • 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
