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 trad­ing with­in last week’s body.

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Retraced back to H4-C‑D 1.90553 BASE with con­tin­u­a­tion down arriv­ing at D1-C‑D 1.89833 and H4 QLo
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Pro­files in UT, cur­rent­ly price is below Value
    • ADR: 1371
    • ASR: 931
      • 24
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.91855
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.90132


  • Loca­tions
    • LN open at ADR 0.5 with near­by ADR exhaus­tion and H4 QLo
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.6 x ASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate to large imbal­ance but due to near by D1 C‑dem and H4 QLo, we could see a mean rever­sion. Although last H4 can­dle print­ed a strong Bear Engulf and ADR got exhaust­ed dur­ing ini­tial min­utes of IB. Fur­ther worth men­tion­ing if IB is too wide we could just see some reac­tive behav­iour although unlike­ly at this point due to news event it could just mean high momen­tum behind the move.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Mod­er­ate to large imbal­ance, near­by D1 C‑Dem, H4 QLo
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bull­ish PA, IB exten­sion with sus­tained auc­tion. Mon­i­tor for val­ue acceptance.
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Continuation
    • News dri­ven. LTF bear­ish PA. 
    • Pre­ferred: Take out of LTF demands with a close deep with­in D1-C-Dem. Ib exten­sion down with sus­tained auction. 
  • Hypo 3 — Return to Value
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion up with PA rever­sal at VAL fol­lowed by failed auction.
