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

Larg­er Timeframe

  • MN
    • Pos­si­ble devel­op­ing MN Three Out­side Down although price is trad­ing with­in last month’s buy­ing range/wick (2 weeks left) and with­in MN demand
    • Price testes devel­op­ing MN C‑Sup (coin­cid­ing with D1 C‑sup)
  • W1
    • Last week closed as a near-Grave­stone Doji (longer sell­ing wick) clos­ing with­in W1 demand
    • Price trad­ing below last week’s body and range
    • Price almost took out W1 demand before react­ing and trad­ing high­er, still below last week’s body but with­in range
    • Price cur­rent­ly trad­ing above last week’s body but with­in sell­ing wick/range

  • D1
    • D1 react­ed off of D1 Sup­ply and closed as a Grave­stone Doji
    • Price breached yesterday’s low, pos­si­bly devel­op­ing a D1 Evening Star
  • H4
    • H4 Three Out­side Down giv­ing H4-C‑S 15400.33 tak­ing out demand but with no con­tin­u­a­tion, instead a H4 Bull­ish Inside Bar
    • Price returned to H4 QHi
    • Pos­si­ble H4 Phase 1 / 3
  • Trend
    • Mixed Trend
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2 over­lap­ping val­ues indi­cat­ing a slowdown
  • LN Open
    • 0.03xASR Below Val­ue, With­in Range
    • Mod­er­ate Imbal­ance, although very slight mar­gin pos­si­ble ambigu­ous open
    • Asia formed a Neu­tral Day but pre­dom­i­nant­ly trad­ed lower


  • Hypo 1
    • Long
    • Sus­tained Auc­tion, prefer­ably Val­ue Accep­tance and rota­tion, risky with new H4 sup­ply with­in value
  • Hypo 2
    • Short
    • Return to Val­ue, Rever­sal, pos­si­ble Failed Auction
  • Hypo 3
    • Short
    • Late-Sus­tained Auction

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
