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

  • Only take trades accord­ing to a hypo unless there are mul­ti­ple con­di­tions met

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing high­er near­ing W1-C‑S 1889.402 and W1 VWAP CAR

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 con­tin­u­a­tion high­er reach­ing D1 VWAP in Range
    • H4 sup­plies tak­en out with price form­ing a RBR giv­ing a base at H4-C‑D 1855.975 BASE
    • Mid H4/D1 swing
    • H4-C‑S 1869.965 formed through Bear Engulf Premarket 
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ues in UT with yesterday’s val­ue fair­ly wide
    • ADR: 30603
    • ASR: 19099
      • 480
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1872.030
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1832.480


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1855.975 BASE at VAH
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.5xASR
    • Sen­ti­ment
      • Mod­er­ate to large imbal­ance. New­ly formed H4 bear engulf at D1 VWAP in Range might prove to have some fol­low-through (Asia kin­da trad­ed side­ways slight­ly up) on although a safer play would be a Return to Val­ue with H4 C‑dem there although it is a Base and thus risky if we retrace all the way back. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Swing Rever­sal / Mean Reversion
    • Pre­ferred: Bear­ish Price action, IB exten­sion down with sus­tained auc­tion. Mon­i­tor for pos­si­ble Val­ue Acceptance.
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Pre­ferred: Retrace­ment to above VAH, bull­ish price action per­haps with failed auc­tion and or IB exten­sion up with sus­tained auction
  • Hypo 3 — Trend Continuation
    • Pre­ferred: Strong bull­ish price action with momen­tum exten­sion and sus­tained auction. 
  • Hypo 4 —  Respon­sive Activity

    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends

    • 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
