Premarket Prep GBPNZD 10272020

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 below MN C‑Sup again (as well as last month’s body) after hav­ing been test­ed mul­ti­ple times
  • W1 con­sol­i­da­tion / pos­si­ble phase 3

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Bear Engulf with a very long buy­ing wick with C‑sup at pre­vi­ous H4 C‑sup now giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.94995
      • Mid D1 swing
    • Pos­si­ble H4 Phase 1 just above H4 QLo and D1 C‑dem
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • After mul­ti-day brack­et­ing we have 3 VA’s formed below one and other
    • ADR: 1347
    • ASR: 1083
      • 28
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.95354
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.94236
      • Cur­rent­ly with­in val­ue, pos­si­bil­i­ty for some balancing


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑S 1.94995 at VAH
    • LTF sup­ply right above VAH and below VAL
    • ADR 0.5 Low with­in H4 QLo
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • With­in Value
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • N.A.
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Bal­anc­ing mar­ket. With an open with­in val­ue we could pos­si­bly trade off near­by LTF SD ZOIs. With pos­si­ble H4 phase 1, it is implied that oppor­tu­ni­ties long would be safer, but with a bal­anc­ing mar­ket it might take a while. Though be care­ful for a force­ful move up this week. Fur­ther­more, I will mon­i­tor the rel­e­vance of ADR 0.5 and exhaus­tion being this far out from value.
      • Due to the new for­ma­tion of D1 Bear Engulf, although weak due to buy­ing wick, that could be because of the ini­tial reac­tion of pre­vi­ous D1 demand. The week­ly is con­sol­i­dat­ing but look­ing slight­ly more bear­ish than bull­ish. As always with a bal­anc­ing mar­ket will have to see what direc­tion the oth­er mar­ket par­tic­i­pants chose first. Then pig­gy-back ride!!! 🙂
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Val­ue Rejec­tion Failure
    • LTF SD ZOI + PA rever­sal + poten­tial failed auction
  • Hypo 2 — Val­ue Rejec­tion Up
    • Sus­tained auc­tion up but due to near­by sup­plies we would see a low/medium ini­tia­tive day

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Since we are near­ing the end of the month I am not look­ing to take any risky trades. So might sit out and observe instead.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.95845
  • D1-C‑S 1.94995

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 1.94746

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
