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 arrived at and is trad­ing with­in W1-C‑D 1.92065

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

    • Break down from D1 con­sol­i­da­tion giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.92947 with clean arrival at D1-C‑D 1.91298 trad­ing with­in D1 QLo
    • H4 Evening Star at D1-C‑S 1.92947 with fol­low-through down trad­ing with­in H4 QLo fol­lowed by H4 Inside Bar (retrac­ing more than 50% with longer buy­ing wick) after react­ing off D1-C‑D 1.91298
