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 with­in W1 demand

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • D1 ham­mer at D1-C‑S 1725.10 Base level
    • H4 Three Out­side Up at H4-C‑S 1734.761 giv­ing H4-C‑S 1733.314 with con­tin­u­a­tion down through DBD arriv­ing at H4-C‑D 1715.315 and H4 VWAP in UT clos­ing below H4 QHi
    • Pre­mar­ket: Price trad­ed low­er tak­ing out H4-C‑D 1715.315 arriv­ing at D1-C‑D 1707.500
  • Mixed Trend: H4 UP, D1 DOWN, W1 UP
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue in UT
    • ADR: 30560
    • ASR: 19275
      • 490
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1739.760
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1719.160


  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑S 1733.314 at VAL
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Below Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.1xASR
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large Imbal­ance. Due to the open sen­ti­ment and arrival at D1-C‑D 1707.500 price might see a mean rever­sion. With H4 Phase 4 in play and larg­er time­frame bear­ish sen­ti­ment price might how­ev­er break low­er as it just has tak­en out H4 demand above this same level. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment and D1 C‑sup
    • Pre­ferred: Bull­ish Price action with IB exten­sion and sus­tained auc­tion. With no H4 sup­plies in the way to VAL we could see a stronger move although this might be coun­ter­played due to larg­er time­frame bear­ish sentiment. 
    • Con: Larg­er time­frame bear­ish sen­ti­ment and H4 phase 4.
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Continuation
    • Nar­ra­tive: H4 Phase 4 in line with larg­er time­frame bear­ish sentiment.
    • Pre­ferred: Strong bear­ish price action, extend­ing IB below with a sus­tained auc­tion. No sup­plies below till D1-C‑D 1693 and being mid H4/M30 swing might make for a strong play although unlike­ly due to the large imbalance. 
    • Con: Large imbal­ance.  Trad­ing right into new D1 C‑dem.
