This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for the Forex pair GBPNZD. 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

  • Don’t take trades where SL place­ment is sub­op­ti­mal. Instead, reassess for a bet­ter entry if pos­si­ble. Unless there is a momen­tum play.

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Retrac­ing pre­vi­ous week’s move down test­ing W1 supply

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Inside bar with slight­ly longer buy­ing wick. Mid D1 Q swing
    • H4 con­sol­i­da­tion with Bear Engulf and no fol­low-through. Instead Three Inside Up clos­ing with­in over­head sup­ply H4-C‑S 1.89784 near W1-C‑S 1.90104 and H4 QHi.
    • Pos­si­ble H4 Phase 3 or redis­tri­b­u­tion (less like­ly although still possible)
    • Pre­mar­ket: H4 closed as an Inside Bar
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue cre­at­ed below pre­vi­ous day’s val­ue (kin­da like a head and shoulders 🙂
    • ADR: 1303
    • ASR: 937
      • 25
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.90140
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.89126


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑S 1.89784 at VAH
    • W1-C‑S 1.90104 just above range
    • H4-C‑D 1.89281 below ses­sion range
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Mod­er­ate Imbal­ance. Due to near prox­im­i­ty to val­ue edge plus over­head sup­ply we might see a move down. Although H4 VWAP is still in UT so we might run into some push­back. Also no con­firmed rever­sal on D1 either. Let pro­file and price action guide as always.
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.2xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Val­ue Acceptance
    • Pre­ferred: Ear­ly accep­tance with quick follow-through
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Pre­ferred: Strong bull­ish price action formed at VAH, IB exten­sion up with sus­tained auc­tion pos­si­bly tak­ing out H4 sup­ply. Prob­a­bly low/medium ini­tia­tive day due to over­head supply. 
  • Hypo 3 — Sin­gle Print Fade / Failed Auction
    • Pre­ferred: Move high­er into sup­ply fail­ing to sus­tain auc­tion (LTF fal­ter­ing) fol­lowed by pos­si­ble TPO struc­ture buildup and price action rever­sal. Pos­si­bly tak­ing out a sin­gle print although trad­ing direct­ly into sup­ply I con­sid­er less like­ly for sinlge prints to get formed. Pos­si­ble too wide IB range and fake out extension. 

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

  • W1-C‑S 1.90104

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • Con­tin­ue track­ing my DRC track­ing sheet
    • Focus on my own progress and less on others
    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym
  • Trad­ing Rules
    • Trade from D and upwards unless a pos­si­ble momen­tum trade, val­ue accep­tance or otherwise. 
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 3 trades 1% risk, 3rd trade only if first 2 worked out
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
