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

  • Only trade the main account
  • Focus on time-based exits
  • Don’t look at M5 chart unless with­in the last hour of trad­ing window

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • W1 sup­ply got tak­en out
  • No imme­di­ate W1 sup­ply nearby
  • Price react­ing of MN-C‑S 1.97300

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 sup­ply got tak­en out, then price closed as a Bear Engulf with sell­ing wick (giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.97044) after the first touch of D1 QHi and D1-C‑S 1.98138 return­ing to D1-C‑D 1.96432 BASE
    • H4 ham­mer with Bear Engulf at MN c‑sup with con­tin­u­a­tion down, pos­si­ble H4 Phase 4
    • H4 VWAP in UT BD (no CAR yet), near­ing H4 50MA in UT
  • Pre­mar­ket
    • H4 Inside Bar at H4 50MA in UT
  • Trend: H4 down, D1 up, W1 up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is up although hav­ing hit a larg­er time­frame sup­ply zone there might be a rever­sal coming. 
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue was cre­at­ed above the pre­vi­ous one then price trad­ed much lower
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 1230
    • ASR: 919
      • 23
    • Day

      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.96334


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑S 1.97044 near VAL 
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.1xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large imbal­ance. Due to the open sen­ti­ment price could see some kind of mean rever­sion (H4 VWAP BD to CAR) although with H4 Inside bar being some­what neu­tral there could just as well be a continuation 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment, H4 50MA in UT, D1 base demand level

  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: D1 Bear Engulf c‑sup at VAL, pos­si­ble H4 phase 4
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion up with price action rever­sal, pos­si­ble sin­gle print fade or failed auction.
