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

Week­ly Focus Points

  • Min. 3 times work­ing out at home + manda­to­ry cardio
  • Trad­ing rules
    • Focus on tak­ing ONE trade a day. If I missed the first DTTZ then a trade needs to be tak­en on the 2nd DTTZ unless there is a high/medium ini­tia­tive activ­i­ty day.
    • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
    • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
    • Buffer trades (prof­it tar­get >1R) are allowed and encouraged
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
  • No social media / mes­sen­ger apps / phone calls allowed dur­ing the trad­ing window

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing with­in last week’s body at W1-C‑S 1890.750

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Closed as a Bear­ish Inside bar but with a longer buy­ing wick after react­ing off D1-C‑S 1899.150 (back trad­ing with­in D1 QHi)

    • H4 Bear Engulf at pre­vi­ous sup­ply and H4 QHi giv­ing H4-C‑S 1892.583
    • Pos­si­ble H4 Phase 3
  • Trend: H4 Down, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is up 2/3

    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Bal­anc­ing Mar­ket. 3‑day over­lap­ping val­ues form­ing a brack­et although slop­ing slight­ly high­er. Plus the open inside there and near­by Sup­ply above val­ue there could be a val­ue rejec­tion fail­ure. If price can hold above VAH in a sus­tained auc­tion there could be a con­tin­u­a­tion of the rejec­tion in line with a pos­si­ble D1 RBR (although yes­ter­day closed as a Bear­ish Inside Bar). Trend is still up which could pro­vide a con­tin­u­a­tion higher.

    • Con: Trend is up
  • Hypo 2 — Val­ue Rejec­tion Down
    • Nar­ra­tive: W1/D1 sup­ply at QHi, Pos­si­ble H4 phase 3, D1 Bear­ish Inside Bar (although with longer buy­ing wick), 
    • Pre­ferred: Strong close below VAL coin­cid­ing with an IB exten­sion, pro­file mak­ing LLs and price clos­ing below IB in a sus­tained move. 
    • Con: huge demand below
  • Hypo 3 — Val­ue Rejec­tion Up
