Premarket Prep GBPNZD 10212020

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.

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • MN C‑Sup reac­tive again, how­ev­er been test­ed 3–4 times now
  • W1 extend­ed above last week’s range returned back to range, above its body

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 pushed high­er into MN C‑Sup and took out D1 sup­ply on the way. Closed high­er but with long sell­ing wick.
    • H4 Bear Engulf formed giv­ing H4-C‑S 1.97059 at MN C‑Sup (above UKC in a range) after test­ing over­head H4-C‑S 1.97415. Slight fol­low-through to the move away from sup­ply, fol­lowed by consolidation.
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Over­lap­ping brack­ets again, with price at the top of the bracket
    • ADR: 1322
    • ASR: 1135
      • 29
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.97683
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.96188
      • Cur­rent­ly below val­ue, out­side range


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1.96000 BASE at ADR 0.5 low and H4 VWAP in Range, H4-C‑D 1.95746 below near ADR exhaus­tion low
    • MN C‑Sup and H4-C‑S 1.97415 at VAH, ADR 0.5 high and Exhaustion
    • H4-C‑S 1.97059 at VAL
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, out­side range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.5xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate imbal­ance. Due to H4-C‑S 1.97059 being at VAL and oth­er C‑sups at VAH I am weary to go for a VAA and am more in favor for a return to val­ue play. Although some news on Brex­it came out again and might have an impact. As we did test MN C‑Sup mul­ti­ple times now and D1 look­ing slight­ly bull­ish we might see a con­tin­u­a­tion to the move up. The con­sol­i­da­tion on H4 kin­da made a move down found some demand and since open we have only been shoot­ing up. Will focus on read­ing order flow to guide my deci­sion-mak­ing since I kin­da lack clar­i­ty in over­all narrative.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 2
  • Hypo 1 — Return to Val­ue (short)
    • PA rever­sal at VAL
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion down, sus­tained auction. 
  • Hypo 2 — VAA
    • Although val­ue is too tight and oppos­ing c‑lines make for a riski­er trade. Although the D1 phase 2 might still be in play.

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.97415
  • H4-C‑S 1.97059

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • H4-C‑D 1.96000 BASE

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • Con­tin­ue track­ing my DRC track­ing sheet
    • Focus on my own progress and less on others
    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym
  • Trad­ing Rules
    • Trade from D and upwards unless a pos­si­ble momen­tum trade, val­ue accep­tance or otherwise. 
  • 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
