Premarket Prep GBPNZD 11172020

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
    • Fol­low-through on Inside bar after D1/H4 C‑sups react­ed form­ing inside bar and move down giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.92401 after tak­ing out D1-C‑D 1.91857 (deep­er mak­ing slight LL with­in D1 QLo, W1 demand with sev­er­al tests now)
    • H4 Inside bar and con­se­quent move high­er at D1-C‑D 1.91298 hav­ing cre­at­ed long buy­ing wicks indi­cat­ing pos­si­ble Phase 1 (although price still below H4 VWAP)
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Brack­ets expand­ing dis­tance with cur­rent­ly price trad­ing at the bot­tom of the over­all range
    • ADR: 1434
    • ASR: 956
      • 25
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.92396
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.90917


  • Loca­tions
    • ADR 0.5 High just above VAH at LTF sup­ply. Although if LTF sup­ply gets tak­en out we might have to mon­i­tor for a sus­tained auction. 
    • D1-C‑S 1.92401 at yesterday’s high and just below H4 QLo (from the inside).
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • With­in Value
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • N.A.
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Bal­anc­ing. How­ev­er due to H4 move up we could see a con­tin­u­a­tion from the bot­tom of the over­all brack­et­ing mar­ket and D1-C‑D 1.91298.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — VA Rejec­tion Up
    • H4 Phase 1 tran­si­tion phase 2 com­ing off D1 C‑Dem + over­all brack­et­ing mar­ket with expand­ing profiles.
    • Pre­ferred: Good close out­side VA, IB exten­sion up with sus­tained auction.
  • Hypo 2 — VA rejec­tion Failure
    • ADR 0.5 High + LTF sup­ply + H4 VWAP (plus fail­ure to exit W1 demand, this is for exper­i­men­tal pur­pos­es). Near­by D1 C‑sup.
    • Pre­ferred: PA rever­sal after IB exten­sion up fol­lowed by failed auc­tion and quick fol­low-through on mov­ing through IB.
  • Hypo 3 — A fol­low-through on Hypo 2
    • Pre­ferred extend and close below VAL deep into D1 demand. Sus­tained auction.

    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
