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

  • Near­ing W1-C‑D 1.93978 and W1 50MA in DT to pos­si­ble CAS

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Inside bar with sell­ing wick with no continuation
    • H4 Phase 1 or 3 at H4 200MA in UT, no arrival at H4 QLo (about 45 pips below)
  • Trend: H4 down, D1 up, W1 up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is up although price has reached a MN sup­ply and W1 rever­sal print­ed through W1 Three Out­side Down

    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Open with­in val­ue although no brakceting range and could see a rever­sal due to near­by W1 demand and MN still some­what bullish.
