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 Pin­bar formed with long sell­ing wick clos­ing above VWAP
  • D1 Phase 2 still in effect and no high­er time frame sup­plies near
  • Pre­vi­ous H4 sup­ply tak­en out, pro­ceed­ed to cre­ate a new one slight­ly high­er through a strong inside bar with H4-C‑S 1.94803. No real move away from sup­ply, instead some consolidation.Price trad­ing between sup­ply and under­neath H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE but no close below (yet)
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Pro­files in uptrend
    • ADR: 1553
    • ASR: 1435
      • 359
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.95826
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.94196
      • Cur­rent­ly price trad­ing below val­ue, out­side range

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Trad­ing above W1 Demand and tried to reach above QLo and hit VWAP yesterday


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑S 1.94803 at with­in range below value 
    • H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE at open and yesterday’s low
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, out­side range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.7xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate imbal­ance, could see a con­tin­u­a­tion down or move up. Price trad­ed down to H4-C‑D 1.94262 BASE but did not take it out yet so there might be grounds for a bounce here. Too far for a high like­li­hood of VA.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Con­tin­u­a­tion down
    • Price action con­firm­ing a con­tin­u­a­tion to the H1 DBD
    • Pre­ferred: Momen­tum IB exten­sion down, sus­tained auction.
    • Con: against medium/high time frame sentiment
  • Hypo 2 — Return to value
    • LTF sup­ply below val­ue with­in range plus H4-C‑S 1.94803 could be a bounce down.
    • Pre­ferred: late IB exten­sion up, price action con­fir­ma­tion rever­sal, failed auc­tion and quick move down.
  • Hypo 3 — val­ue acceptance
    • Less like­ly due to LTF con­ges­tion and approx­i­ma­tion to val­ue edge. 

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.94803

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • H4-C‑D 1.94262 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
