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 Phase 4 with price cur­rent­ly trad­ing below last week’s body and range
  • Slight reac­tion off W1 VWAP and W1-C‑D 1.92120 (pos­si­ble BASE)

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 demand tak­en out by D1 Bear Engulf giv­ing D1-C‑S 1.92188 right at W1 demand although trad­ing at D1 LKC in R above D1 QLo (no touch yet)
    • H4 Bull Engulf at W1 demand but trad­ing below H4 VWAP in DT 
    • Trad­ing with­in H4 QLo

  • Mar­ket Profile

    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 closed high­er from Bull Engulf
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Bal­anc­ing Mar­ket. Although price has con­tin­ued high­er from W1 demand (coin­cid­ing with W1 VWAP) so there is a pos­si­bil­i­ty for a val­ue rejec­tion up.
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Bal­anc­ing Market
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sentiment

    • Con: H4 VWAP in DT, opened at VAL

Addi­tion­al notes

Mind­ful Trad­ing (lack of sleep?)

  • Feel­ing okay

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

  • Trad­ing Rules
    • Trade from D and upwards unless a pos­si­ble momen­tum trade, val­ue accep­tance or otherwise. 
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • With­out forc­ing a trade: aim to take 1 trade a day, if pos­si­ble 2. 
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
