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

  • Trad­ing below W1 Three Out­side Down deep with­in W1 demand and W1 QLo

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Inside Bar cre­at­ed clos­ing just above D1 QLo
    • H4 Closed slight­ly Above D1 QLO fol­lowed by a gap up over the week­end and ini­tial reac­tion off H4 VWAP in DT
    • Pre­mar­ket: Bull­ish Inside Bar cre­at­ed with­in new­ly formed sup­ply clos­ing above D1 QLo
  • Trend
    • Mixed trend: H4 down, D1 down, W1 up
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ues in DT with cur­rent­ly price above value
    • ADR: 27652
    • ASR: 20474
      • 512
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1815.060
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1791.920


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1795.513 below VAL inside range
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.3xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Mod­er­ate imbal­ance. With H4 and D1 being down and arrival and new­ly formed sup­ply at H4 VWAP in DT we could see a move down. Although with open sen­ti­ment above val­ue and a close above D1 QLo we have a bull­ish medi­um time frame nar­ra­tive. A val­ue accep­tance would negate it although it might be less reliable. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment above val­ue with mod­er­ate imbal­ance we could see a test of VAH before con­tin­u­ing high­er as part of a pos­si­ble D1 Three Inside Up / W1 pull­back narrative
    • Pre­ferred: Bull­ish Price action con­firm­ing and reject­ing H4/D1 QLo with a momen­tum exten­sion up and of course a sus­tained auction.
  • Hypo 2 — Val­ue Acceptance
    • Nar­ra­tive: Con­tin­u­a­tion of W1 Three Out­side Down. A full rota­tion could negate the bull­ish sen­ti­ment of hypo 1.
    • Pre­ferred: IB tak­ing out LTF demand and exten­sion down accept­ing val­ue (ear­ly on) with quick rotation.

Mind­ful Trading

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • Con­tin­ue track­ing my DRC track­ing sheet
    • Focus on my own progress and less on others
    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym
  • Trad­ing Rules
    • Trade from D and upwards unless a pos­si­ble momen­tum trade, val­ue accep­tance or otherwise. 
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • 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
