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

  • Price trad­ing above MN C‑Sup after hav­ing been test­ed mul­ti­ple times
  • W1 is trad­ing above last week’s range with 2 more days to go
