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.

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • D1-C‑S 1.97293 was formed through D1 Bear Engulf coin­cid­ing with H4 Bear Engulf after reject­ing over­head sup­ply H4-C‑S 1.97489
  • H4 closed below VWAP with drop and base for the first time but still trad­ing with­in demand ZOI and need AS to close to see if we have anoth­er drop
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Since Fri­day val­ue has been wider than usu­al and has been overlapping
    • Cur­rent­ly price is trad­ing below just VAL but will need to reassess at LN open
    • ASR 109.8 
      • MAX SL (including/excluding spread)
        • Short 33 pips
        • Long 23
    • ADR 137

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Mid MN, W1, and D1 swing
  • W1 trad­ing with­in pre­vi­ous week’s body look­ing like an inside bar how­ev­er the week is not fin­ished yet
  • H4, D1 trend is up, W1 is down


  1. Short:
    1. Bounc­ing off new­ly formed H4-C‑S 1.97489 coin­cid­ing with cur­rent  ADR 0.5 location
  2. Short:
    1. Open below val­ue with­in range, failed val­ue accep­tance bounc­ing of D1-C‑S 1.97293
  3. Long:
    1. Drop to H4-C‑D 1.96348 or H4-C‑D 1.96146 coin­cid­ing with ADR and 4+ TPO struc­ture for a pos­si­ble reversal

Sen­ti­ment — Slight­ly Bearish

Focus Points for trad­ing development

    • Trade idea con­sid­er­ing mar­ket con­text based on larg­er time frame analysis 
  • Risk Man­age­ment

      • GBPNZD
