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 is cur­rent­ly trad­ing with­in last week’s body after an ini­tial reac­tion off W1 QLo last week
    • Moved to below last week’s body in premarket

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Bull Engulf and first retest of D1-C‑D 1.92921 (coin­cid­ing with D1 200MA) and con­se­quent move high­er (leav­ing a buy­ing wick) return­ing to D1-C‑S 1.94900 (coin­cid­ing with D1 VWAP CAR) with ini­tial reaction
    • H4 VWAP in DT BO CAS through large bull engulf giv­ing H4-C‑D 1.93717 and con­se­quent con­sol­i­da­tion and break down at H4 QHi (coin­cid­ing with H4 UKC in DT CAR at H4 200MA) 
  • Trend: H4 Up, D1 Down, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Mixed Trend
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Yes­ter­day val­ue was cre­at­ed above the 2 over­lap­ping pre­ced­ing val­ues with a wide­ness of more than 75% of ASR

    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1.95015
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1.92830

      • H4 Con­tin­u­a­tion down

      • Mod­er­ate Imbal­ance with A clos­ing slight with­in Val­ue. H4 con­tin­u­a­tion down reach­ing H4 demand with under­ly­ing VWAP there might be cause for a bounce. If val­ue is tru­ly accept­ed price could see a rota­tion to D1 demand.
