Premarket Prep GBPNZD 11242020

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 and Asia today com­plete­ly retrac­ing yesterday’s Bull Engulf
    • H4 Bear Engulf with long buy­ing wick after pre­vi­ous sup­ply gets tak­en out giv­ing the same H4-C‑S 1.92348. Asia made an extend­ed move down clos­ing with­in D1-C‑D 1.91298.
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • VAs dis­tanc­ing but still with­in over­all range. ADR has been exhaust­ed to the down­side at 140% now.
    • ADR: 1172
    • ASR: 916
      • 23
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.92794
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.91229


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑D 1.91298 at ADR exhaus­tion low (already hit), new LTF demand formed
    • H4-C‑S 1.92355 at VAH
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.6xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Slight­ly large imbal­ance at the bot­tom of a rang­ing mar­ket. H4 closed as an Inside Bar at D1 C‑Dem. H1 con­sol­i­da­tion with longer buy­ing wicks with a bull­ish fin­ish­er (plus price overex­tend­ed from VWAP in Range). With Asia mov­ing down 140% ADR, plsu being at the bot­tom of the over­all range as well as the imbal­ance in rela­tion to pro­file I am more look­ing for bull­ish opportunities. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Swing Reversal
    • Pre­ferred: Bull­ish PA and IB exten­sion up, sus­tained auc­tion. Per­haps a val­ue acceptance. 
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Pre­ferred: PA rever­sal con­fir­ma­tion at VAL (per­haps even a poke into val­ue hit­ting H4 C‑Sup) before revers­ing. Failed auction. 
  • Hypo 3 — Trend Con­tin­u­a­tion (unlike­ly)
    • Pre­ferred: Tak­ing out of LTF demands and mak­ing a swing low. Ib down and sus­tained auction.

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • D1-C‑S 1.92947
  • H4-C‑S 1.2348

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 1.91298

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay. Not look­ing to force any trades even though I have had only 5 trades this month. It is the last week of the month so unless some­thing is super clear I am stay­ing out. 

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
