This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for 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. Unless there is a planned momen­tum trade.

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing slight­ly below last week’s body form­ing a pos­si­ble W1 DBD if we close like this. Still a lot can hap­pen in a day. 

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Big D1 Bear Engulf giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.89847 tak­ing out demands near­ing the next demand at W1-C‑D 1.85922 but no arrival yet
    • H4 Phase 4 arriv­ing clean at H4-C‑D 1.87235 fol­lowed by a con­sol­i­da­tion leav­ing longer buy­ing wicks behind
    • H4 closed down from con­sol­i­da­tion into under­ly­ing demand leav­ing some sup­ply H4-C‑S 1.875 (round num­ber) although low in dis­tri­b­u­tion curve. 
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Broke down from Brack­et­ing Range
    • ADR: 1689
    • ASR: 1130
      • 29
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.90799
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.87020


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1.87235 at yesterday’s low and ADR 0.5 Low
    • ADR exhaus­tion low­er deep­er into H4 demand
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.1x ASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Large Imbal­ance. Due to the large imbal­ance a mean rever­sion would be the best prob­a­ble play. How­ev­er, due to H4 clos­ing down into demand (Might be more news dri­ven momen­tum) we might see some con­tin­u­a­tion to the move. As always will let order­flow con­firm or negate any plays. If ADR gets exhaust­ed mov­ing deep­er into demand we could poten­tial­ly see a con­tin­u­a­tion to the move. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Pre­ferred: IB tak­ing out LTF sup­ply. Exten­sion up (momen­tum) with sus­tained auc­tion. Mon­i­tor for fur­ther Val­ue accep­tance. Might see a move down first before a mean rever­sion can take place.
  • Hypo 2: Return to value
    • Would coin­cide with a retest of new­ly formed H4 C‑sup. Might even see a pop of round num­ber H4-C‑S 1.875?
    • Pre­ferred: Price action con­firm­ing a rever­sal at VAL. Ib exten­sion up fol­lowed by failed auc­tion and quick through
  • Hypo 3: Trend Continuation
    • IB extend­ing down (momen­tum) tak­ing out under­ly­ing demand

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Brex­it talks ongo­ing: strong pos­si­bil­i­ty no-deal Brexit
  • BOE Gov Bai­ley speaks

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1.91275
  • H4-C‑S 1.90471
  • D1-C‑S 1.89847
  • H4-C‑S 1.875

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • MN-C‑D 1.89659
  • H4-C‑D 1.87235

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay

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
