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

  • Only take trades accord­ing to a hypo unless there are mul­ti­ple con­di­tions met

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price is trad­ing with­in last week’s Bull Engulf with long buy­ing wick
  • Still trad­ing with­in W1 QLo

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • After reac­tion off D1-C‑S 1.91538 there was a pull­back to D1-C-D1.89878 after a bull engulf was cre­at­ed giv­ing new demand at D1-C‑D 1.90495
    • Mid D1 swing
    • H4 Bull Engulf formed at D1 C‑dem with con­se­quent move high­er although leav­ing behind some sell­ing wicks and cre­at­ing a base at H4-C‑D 1.90635 BASE. Price arrived at H4 QHi and H4-C‑S 1.91149
    • Pre­mar­ket: H4 closed as a spin­ning top with slight­ly longer buy­ing wick at H4-C‑S 1.91149
  • Trend: H4 up, D1 up, W1 down
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2 day brack­et with yesterday’s val­ue area being much wider
    • ADR: 1137
    • ASR: 868
      • 22
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.90918
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.89946


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1.90635 BASE­be­low VAH, D1-C‑D 1.90495 with­in val­ue below POC, plus large LTF demand between VAH and D1 C‑dem
    • H4-C‑S 1.91149 at H4 Qhi, D1-C‑S 1.91538 just above it
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.3xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Mod­er­ate Imbal­ance. With H4 push­ing high­er and an open mod­er­ate imbal­ance above val­ue we could expect a push high­er. Although we have reached H4 QHi and sup­ply we coils see some push back.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Swing Reversal
    • Nar­ra­tive: W1 Bear Engulf, price reach­ing H4 QHi and over­head supply
    • Pre­ferred: Bear­ish Price action rever­sal prefer­ably with­in IB fol­lowed by exten­sion down, accept­ing val­ue with rota­tion through. Oth­er­wise a failed auc­tion before reversing.
    • Con: D1 D‑dem at POC with­in val­ue although a retrace­ment to H4-C‑D 1.90635 BASE might be in favor of the direction. 
  • Hypo 2 — Trend continuation
    • Nar­ra­tive: H4 ral­ly look­ing bull­ish although some­what slow­ing down. W1 hav­ing retraced pre­vi­ous bear engulf with very long buy­ing wick indi­cat­ing more buy­ers are still present. 
    • Pre­ferred: Bull­ish price action with momen­tum IB exten­sion up fol­lowed by a sus­tained auc­tion tak­ing out supply.
    • Con: due to the wide nature of the sup­ply we could see a lot of push back and thus a low/medium ini­tia­tive activ­i­ty day.
