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 after div­ing deep­er into demand but still have 3 days to go

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Nor­mal For­ma­tion retrac­ing almost all of Monday’s move still trad­ing with­in D1 QLo, pos­si­ble D1 Phase 1
    • Price trad­ed high­er after test­ing D1-C‑D 1.91298 and arrived at H4-C‑S 1.92839 (@ H4 50MA in DT) proved reac­tive and start­ed consolidating
    • H4 Evening Star at 2nd test of H4-C‑S 1.92739 clos­ing at H4 VWAP in DT
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Brack­ets expand­ing dis­tance with cur­rent­ly price trad­ing at the top of the over­all range (M30 QHi) with VA very wide
    • ADR: 1375
    • ASR: 1032
      • 26
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.92752
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.91052


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑S 1.92401 at VAH + LTF sup­ply / M30 QHi
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • With­in value
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • N.A.
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • VA is wider than usu­al. Bal­anc­ing mar­ket. Although price is at the top of the brack­et­ing range com­ing from M30 QHi in a medi­um time­frame down­wards move (already mid-swing). H1 DBD. Not look­ing to force anything. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 2
  • Hypo 1 — Bal­anc­ing Mar­ket — LTF / ADR 0.5 
    • LTF PA rever­sal. Near­by D1 C‑lines, LTF supply/demands etc. 
  • Hypo 2 — VA rejec­tion (short)
    • Pre­ferred: IB clos­ing into LTF sup­ply con­fi­dent­ly. IB extend­ing down with sus­tained auc­tion. Per­haps a 2nd entry oppor­tu­ni­ty on pull­back off D1 C‑Dem.

Mind­ful Trading

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • Con­tin­ue track­ing my DRC track­ing sheet

  • 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
