Premarket Prep GBPNZD 10142020

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 trade off M30/M15 for entries. M30, time-based, or look for exits after 2 hours (4 TPOs). Unless the entry is real­ly late.
  • SL place­ment
    • Add spread for shorts, sub­tract for longs

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing below last week’s body and range (below W1-C‑D 1.94836 Base) and back into W1 QLo

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Big D1 Bear Engulf (giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.95562) clos­ing below VWAP with­in D1-C‑D 1.94736
    • H4 phase 4 reach­ing H4-C‑D 1.93720 (not reac­tive yet)
    • Yes­ter­day was uni­di­rec­tion­al 180%
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Brack­et­ing
    • ADR: 1464
    • ASR: 1278
      • 32
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.96752
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.94290
      • Cur­rent­ly below val­ue, out­side range, below pre­vi­ous day’s low about 1.2xASR away


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1.93720 at ADR 0.5 with­in H4 QLo
    • ADR exhaus­tion low below H4 demand
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below val­ue, out­side range, below yesterday’s low
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.5xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Large imbal­ance hit­ting H4-C‑D 1.93720. If H4 demand gets tak­en out it would coin­cide with exhaus­tion of ADR and thus might see a con­tin­u­a­tion. Most like­ly there will be some kind of mean reversion. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Rever­sion (long)
    • Large imbal­ance. H4-C‑D 1.93720.
    • Pre­ferred: price action rever­sal on M30, IB exten­sion up (prefer­ably momen­tum), sus­tained auc­tion. No sup­plies on H4, although some LTF sup­plies in the way might see a slowdown. 
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Con­tin­u­a­tion (short)
    • Pos­si­ble D1 phase 2 continuation
    • Pre­ferred: Strong can­dles down or slight pull­back price action con­firm­ing con­tin­u­a­tion. Pos­si­bil­i­ty for a 2nd chance entry per­haps. IB exten­sion down (prefer­ably momen­tum) with sus­tained auc­tion. Exhaust­ing ADR with no rever­sal pat­tern. No real demands in the way. 

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • 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
