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

  • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym + manda­to­ry cardio
  • Only trade the main account
  • Be mind­ful of DTTZs
  • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
  • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing below the Neu­tral Inside Bar mak­ing a LL

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Price took out D1-C‑D 1.96720 through Big Bear Engulf giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.96852 return­ing to D1 UKC in UT / D1 VWAP in UT
    • Mid D1 swing
    • H4 Bear Engulf with con­tin­u­a­tion and long-legged doji below H4 LKC in R cre­at­ing some demand (VWAP in R too)
  • Trend: H4 Down, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend although hav­ing reached an oppos­ing MN sup­ply zone
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2‑day over­lap­ping val­ue with 3rd cre­at­ed above, although price is trad­ing way below
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 1078
    • ASR: 832
      • 21
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.97503
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.95619


  • Loca­tions

    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.5xASR
    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 Bear Engulf formed with an imme­di­ate retrace­ment and tak­ing out of supply
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large Imbal­ance. Look­ing at a pos­si­ble mean rever­sion. With D1 c‑sup at VAL there could be a nice Return to Val­ue oppor­tu­ni­ty as well. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Large Imbal­ance at the open, IB range wide but not too wide. Retraced all of H4 bear Engulf and took out supply. 
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bull­ish Price action, IB exten­sion up, sus­tained auc­tion to VAL
    • Con: Pos­si­ble D1 Phase 3
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: D1 C‑sup at VAL, pos­si­ble D1 Phase 3

  • 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
