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

  • W1 50MA in DT BO to pos­si­bly CAS, no W1 rever­sal pat­tern (yet)
  • W1 demand got tak­en out last week

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 50MA in UT BD to CAR after Bull Engulf above D1 QLo, LKC in UT and D1 200MA
    • H4 Bull Engulf giv­ing H4-C‑D 1.92290 with fol­low-through (break­ing above H4 Qlo) to H4 VWAP in DT trad­ing slight­ly above to H4 50MA in DT trad­ing mid H4 swing
  • Trend: H4 Up, D1 Down, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Mixed trend after an uptrend hit­ting a HTF sup­ply and reversing
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • 2‑day over­lap­ping values
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 1245

    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.93810
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.91730


  • Loca­tions

    • H4-C‑D 1.92290 above D1 QLo
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.2xASR
    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 closed as a doji with longer sell­ing wick. Pos­si­ble DBD in the making. 
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large imbal­ance at the open after a M30 VWAP in UT BD. Not far above D1 c‑dem so shorts can be tricky. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion 
    • Nar­ra­tive: Large imbal­ance at the open, pos­si­ble H4 DBD in the making
    • Pre­ferred: Momen­tum exten­sion down, sus­tained auc­tion to Val­ue edge
    • Con: D1 demand right below at M30 LKC in UT coin­cid­ing with M30 QLo, plus price is mid M30/H4 swing
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: D1 c‑dem at VAH, M30/H4 QLo
    • Pre­ferred: Exten­sion down, bull­ish PA rever­sal to failed auc­tion, pos­si­bly form­ing a neu­tral day
    • Con: Large imbal­ance at the open

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion Rule in effect

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 1.92921
  • H4-C‑D 1.92290

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing jumpy, didn’t sleep well. Gonna sit today out in terms of trad­ing but will observe and take notes.

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • No momen­tum trades on Non-Farm Fridays
    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym + manda­to­ry cardio
    • Only trade the main account
    • Be mind­ful of DTTZs
    • Only price-action based exit rules (or hit time stop)
    • M15/M30 com­bi­na­tion at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
  • 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
