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

  • Don’t take trades where SL place­ment is sub­op­ti­mal. Instead, reassess for a bet­ter entry if possible. 

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price arrived at and is trad­ing just above W1-C‑D 1.92065

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1-C‑D 1.91298 proved reac­tive form­ing an Inside bar with slight­ly longer buy­ing wick (with­in D1 QLo)
    • H4-C‑D 1.91432 formed through H4 Bull Engulf on top of D1-C‑D 1.91298 with fol­low-through though still trad­ing with­in D1 QLo and below H4 VWAP in DT.
    • H4 closed above H4/D1 QLo (slight­ly above VWAP)
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Brack­ets expand­ing dis­tance with cur­rent­ly price trad­ing below the over­all range
    • ADR: 1576
    • ASR: 993
      • 25
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.92251
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.90974


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1.91432 at VAL
    • W1-C‑D 1.92065at VAH
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.8xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Large Imbal­ance but due to the nature of the week a mean rever­sion might not be the best option although HK has tak­en it high­er. There is a con­sol­i­da­tion at the top of the M30 UT just below LTF Sup­ply and D1-C‑S 1.92947 although the H4 move up looks forceful. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — H4 Swing Rever­sal Con­tin­u­a­tion (long)
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion up (momen­tum) clear­ing LTF sup­plies. Mon­i­tor for sus­tained auc­tion exhaust­ing ADR.
  • Hypo 2 — Mean Rever­sion (short)
    • Pre­ferred: PA rever­sal, strong bear­ish PA

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Fri­day
    • ECB Pres­i­dent Lagarde / BOE Gov Bai­ley / Fed Chair Pow­ell speaks

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.94104
  • D1-C‑S 1.92947

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • W1-C‑D 1.92065
  • H4-C‑D 1.91432
  • D1-C‑D 1.91298

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing good. 
  • Not trad­ing today since I am not at my desk. Just tun­ing from time to time. 

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
