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 trade the main account
  • Focus on time-based exits
  • Don’t look at M5 chart unless with­in the last hour of trad­ing window

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price trad­ing with­in last week’s body but in the middle
  • W1 Phase 4 still possible

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 Bull Engulf formed giv­ing D1-C‑D 1707.500
    • H4 VWAP in DT break out, H4 Phase 2 with clean arrival at H4 50MA in DT + H4-C‑S 1715.630 form­ing a Three Inside Down
    • Pre­mar­ket: reac­tion off new­ly formed D1 C‑dem and closed as an Inside Bar
  • Trend: H4 , D1 , W1 
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue cre­at­ed above pre­vi­ous value
    • ADR: 33555
    • ASR: 19920
      • 500
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1720.550
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1660.20


  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑D 1707.500 at VAH and M30 QLo
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 0.3xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Mod­er­ate Imbal­ance. With a larg­er time­frame bear­ish sen­ti­ment and two con­sec­u­tive opens above val­ue we see a shift in sen­ti­ment. Plus a D1 Bull Engulf was formed at D1/W1 demand lev­els of which the con­ter­mi­nous line was test­ed pre­mar­ket. With D1 C‑dem and H4 sup­ply there we could see fur­ther con­sol­i­da­tion unless we can see a val­ue accep­tance to show for more down­side as we are at H4 50MA in DT. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Val­ue Acceptance
    • Nar­ra­tive: Pos­si­ble H4 DBD in the mak­ing at Sup­ply with larg­er time frame bear­ish sentiment
    • Pre­ferred: Ear­ly accep­tance and quick follow-through
    • Con: 
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: D1 Bull Engulf and open above sentiment
    • Pre­ferred: Test of VAH with Bull­ish price con­fir­ma­tion, per­haps a failed auc­tion even oth­er­wise an IB exten­sion up but a sus­tained auc­tion might be trou­ble­some due to over­head sup­ply. Thus a H4 con­sol­i­da­tion might be form­ing and thus we could pos­si­bly trade swing high and low. In this case low. 
    • Con: Larg­er time­frame bear­ish sentiment

Addi­tion­al notes

  • N.A.

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • 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
