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

  • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym + manda­to­ry cardio
  • Trad­ing rules
    • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
    • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
      • Oth­er­wise a Bart Simp­son exercise

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Price is trad­ing above last week’s W1 formation
  • Mid W1 swing
  • Still trad­ing above MN-C‑D 1738.50

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Pos­si­ble D1 Phase 1 (reac­cu­mu­la­tion) or Phase 3
    • D1 Bear­ish Inside Bar with no fol­low-through. Instead a Bull­ish Inside Bar with longer buy­ing wick react­ing off D1-C‑D 1771.75 and D1 VWAP in UT (although test­ed a few times)
    • Trad­ing with­in D1/H4 QHi
    • H4 Three Out­side Up giv­ing H4-C‑D 1777 and con­tin­ued move high­er to H4 UKC in R
  • Trend: H4 Up, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is UP
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue was cre­at­ed below the pre­vi­ous and price is still trad­ing with­in over­all range
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 22487
    • ASR: 12260
      • 310
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1787.920
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1770.270

Sen­ti­ment

  • Loca­tions
    • H4-C‑D 1777 with­in Val­ue at PPOC below VAL
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.2xASR
    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 closed high­er above H4 UKC in R but below H4 C‑sup (no test)
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large Imbal­ance at the open. There could be a mean rever­sion. Although D1 closed bull­ish yes­ter­day there could be some kind of con­sol­i­da­tion going on. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 3
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment, Near­by H4 c‑sup at H4 UKC in R
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bear­ish PA, IB exten­sion down, Sus­tained auc­tion, pos­si­ble an exten­sion up to failed auc­tion to Neu­tral Day
    • Con: Trend is up, larg­er time­frame bull­ish sentiment,
  • Hypo 2 — Return to Value
    • Nar­ra­tive: H4 Phase 2, pos­si­ble H4 pullback
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion down to LTF demand and strong bull­ish rever­sal to failed auc­tion. Or if lat­er on in the ses­sion a pos­si­ble TPO struc­ture build up or Sin­gle Print Fade
    • Con: open sentiment
  • Hypo 3 — Trend Continuation 
    • Nar­ra­tive: Larg­er time­frame bull­ish sentiment
    • Pre­ferred: IB exten­sion Up, sutained auction,
    • Con: open sentiment

    • Non-Farm Fri­day tomorrow

Addi­tion­al notes

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1783.670

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • H4-C‑D 1777
  • D1-C‑D 1771.750

Mind­ful Trad­ing (lack of sleep?)

  • Feel­ing okay

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Month­ly Goals
    • No momen­tum trades on Non-Farm Fridays
    • Feel­ing okay with NOT trading
    • Have ‘qui­eter’ weekends
  • Week­ly Goal
    • Min. 3 times hit­ting the gym + manda­to­ry cardio
    • Trad­ing rules
      • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
      • Only price-action based exit rules (or if hit time stop comes earlier)
        • Oth­er­wise a Bart Simp­son exercise
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • With­out forc­ing a trade: aim to take 1 trade a day, if pos­si­ble 2. 
    • Cap­i­tal Preser­va­tion dur­ing draw­down allows for 1R profit-taking
    • 2 con­sec­u­tive days of lack of sleep = NO TRADING
