This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for GOLD. This prep builds off of my week­ly trade plan I made here:

    • Push high­er towards D1 VWAP in Range form­ing an Evening Star test­ing under­ly­ing demand at W1‑C‑D 1839.109 (plus new­ly formed D1 demand). Reac­tion off said demand left a long buy­ing wick behind.
