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 div­ing deep­er into demand W1-C‑D 1.92065

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Phase 1 / 3
    • H4 RBR at D1-C-D1.91298 with con­se­quent retest through pin­bar with con­tin­u­a­tion higher
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Brack­et­ing profiles.
    • ADR: 1232
    • ASR: 987
      • 25
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High @ D1-C‑S 1.91842
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low @ D1-C‑D 1.90953


  • Loca­tions
    • Over­all rang­ing mar­ket. Trade extremes. 
    • H4-C‑D 1.91562 BASE at VAH
    • ADR Exhaus­tion high above H4 C‑sup
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.6xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Even though a slight­ly large imbal­ance at open we could see a con­tin­u­a­tion high­er due to H4 hav­ing print­ed bull­ish PA and tran­si­tion to Phase 2. Nonethe­less, due to near prox­im­i­ty to ADR 0.5 and H4 C‑sup above the best play might be a mean reversion.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Pre­ferred: IB extend­ing towards H4 C‑Sup fol­lowed by PA con­firm­ing a rever­sal and either an IB exten­sion down or failed auction. 
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Continuation
    • Pre­ferred: IB clos­ing print­ing Bull­ish PA, IB exten­sion up (momen­tum), sus­tained auc­tion into over­head supply

Addi­tion­al notes

  • GBP & EUR — Flash Man­u­fac­tur­ing PMI

  • Risk Man­age­ment
