This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for GOLD. 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

  • Don’t take trades where SL place­ment is sub­op­ti­mal. Instead, reassess for a bet­ter entry if pos­si­ble. Unless there is a momen­tum play.

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • React­ing off W1 demand after Bear Engulf was formed

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Drag­on­fly doji (ish) formed at D1-C‑D 1847.306
    • Pos­si­ble H4 Phase 1
    • Mid H4/D1 swing
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue cre­at­ed below 2 day brack­et­ing range
    • ADR: 35023
    • ASR: 19463
      • 487
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1857.440
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1830.770


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1844.527 near VAH W1-C_D 1839.109 below at VAL
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.5xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate to large imbal­ance. Due to hav­ing reached high­er time frame demand and a pos­si­ble phase 1 on H4 we could see a push high­er after all this bal­anc­ing in the market. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Return to Value
    • Pre­ferred: Move down to VAH / H4 C‑dem with Price action con­firm­ing bull­ish sen­ti­ment, IB exten­sion up with sus­tained auction.
  • Hypo 2 — Swing Reversal
    • Pre­ferred: Fol­low-through on H4 move tak­ing out H4 sup­ply, IB exten­sion up with sus­tained auction. 
  • Hypo 3 — Respon­sive Activity

    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends

  • Trad­ing Rules

  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 3 trades 1% risk, 3rd trade only if first 2 worked out
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
