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 goal

  • For­mu­late hypos in order of like­li­hood and track with actu­al devel­op­ment on the day

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • D1 RBR (tak­ing out sup­ply and closed above 1.94, right below VWAP) con­firm­ing a tran­si­tion to phase 2, price is now trad­ing at VWAP, D1-C‑D 1.92284 BASE formed
  • Price closed well above H4/D1 QLo
  • H4 RBR giv­ing H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE now trad­ing below H4-C‑S 1.94667 (but no high­er time frame supplies)
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive pro­files print­ed above the previous
    • ADR: 1483
    • ASR: 1451
      • 363
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.94476
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.91538
      • Price above value(¾ ASR), range and yesterday’s high

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Trad­ing above W1 Demand but still with­in QLo


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑S 1.94667 
    • H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE 
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above val­ue, out­side range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • ¾ ASR but made a high to 0.9xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Due to not ful­fill­ing mean rever­sion fac­tors at the open, might be indica­tive of high­er momen­tum and could be look­ing at a continuation
        • But because we did hit it at ADR 0.5 we might see a mean reversion.
      • With H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE not far below, if hit, we could see a fur­ther retracement.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
  • Hypo 1 — con­tin­u­a­tion long
    • Momen­tum trade long extend­ing IB range dur­ing 1st two hours, sus­tained auc­tion tak­ing out H4 supply
    • Con: trad­ing right into H4 supply
  • Hypo 2 — Mean Reversion
    • Price action con­firm­ing rever­sal, IB exten­sion down, 
    • Pre­ferred: hit­ting H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE we could see a fur­ther retrace­ment, mon­i­tor val­ue accep­tance for a poten­tial con­tin­u­a­tion to the move. 
  • Hypo 3 — Con­tin­gency on Hypo 1
    • No momen­tum, slight IB exten­sion up fol­lowed by failed auction
    • Pre­ferred: sim­i­lar to Hypo 2

Addi­tion­al notes

  • BOE Gov Bai­ley Speaks at 10pm

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.94667

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE
  • D1-C‑D 1.92284 BASE

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Week­ly Goal
    • For­mu­late hypos in order of like­li­hood and track with actu­al devel­op­ment on the day
    • Incor­po­rate pro­file day type
  • Trad­ing Rules
    • If Open out­side of val­ue con­sid­er the place­ment in rela­tion to ADR 
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 3 trades 1% risk, 3rd trade only if first 2 worked out
    • OK to take 1R when in DD
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
