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
  • Trad­ing rules
    • 1 trade per day min­i­mum (unless I missed the 1st DTTZ and the 2nd DTTZ is a con­tin­u­a­tion to the first)
      • 1R tar­gets allowed if con­di­tions are less than opti­mal (buffer trades allow for 0.5–0.8R profit-taking)
    • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
    • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
      • Oth­er­wise a Bart Simp­son exercise

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing below last week’s body. If it holds it will close as a W1 Bear Engulf. Still 3 days left.

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Ham­mer clos­ing below D1 QHi
    • H4 Three Inside Up at H4 LKC with no fol­low-through. Instead, a big Bear Engulf
  • Trend: H4 Down, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is up how­ev­er H4 turned to down
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue cre­at­ed below brack­et­ing range
  • Dai­ly Range

      • 2.1xASR
    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 con­tin­u­a­tion to Phase 4
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Huge Imbal­ance at the open cou­pled with ADR exhaus­tion indi­cat­ing pos­si­ble strength behind the move. Price has not yet reached H4 QLo.

    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bear­ish PA, IB exten­sion down (momen­tum), sus­tained auc­tion to D1-C‑D 1.92400 
    • Con: Trad­ing near H4 QLo
  • Hypo 2 — Swing Reversal
    • Nar­ra­tive: Vari­a­tion to Hypo 1, price trades low­er and forms TPO struc­ture before reversing
    • Pre­ferred: 4+ TPO struc­ture with Strong rever­sal PA, pos­si­ble fad­ing the auc­tion or Sin­gle Print Fade. 
    • Con: 
  • Hypo 3 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open Sentiment

    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
