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 trad­ing above last week’s body and range near­ing the end of supply

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price action
    • Price trad­ed high­er and closed with­in D1-C‑S 1856.064 almost tak­ing out sup­ply and D1 QHi
    • H4 price fal­ter­ing at W1/D1 Sup­ply End although still inch­ing higher
  • Trend: H4 Up, D1 Up, W1 Up
    • Pre­vail­ing trend: Trend is Up
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • Val­ue in UT
  • Dai­ly Range
    • ADR: 24383
    • ASR: 14661
      • 370
    • Day
      • Yes­ter­day’s High 1868.390
      • Yes­ter­day’s Low 1843.480

Sen­ti­ment

  • Loca­tions
    • D1-C‑S 1856.064 at VAH
  • Sen­ti­ment
    • LN open
      • Above Val­ue, Out­side Range
    • Open dis­tance to value
      • 1.2xASR
    • Pre­mar­ket
      • H4 trad­ed high­er with­in D1 supply
    • Nar­ra­tive
      • Large Imbal­ance. Price is slow­ly inch­ing high­er although there is a large imbal­ance price could pop D1 sup­ply and see a con­tin­u­a­tion to the move. Shorts are favored due to the large imbal­ance so there might be a mean rever­sion first. 
  • Clar­i­ty (1–5, 5 being best)
    • 4
  • Hypo 1 — Mean Reversion
    • Nar­ra­tive: Open sen­ti­ment, trad­ing with­in sup­ply near End
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bear­ish PA, IB exten­sion down tak­ing out LTF/H4 demand
    • Con: There could be strength behind the move up
  • Hypo 2 — Trend Con­tin­u­a­tion (Return to Value)
    • Nar­ra­tive: Pos­si­ble strength behind the move, near­ing D1 sup­ply end
    • Pre­ferred: Strong Bull­ish PA, IB exten­sion up or a failed auc­tion in case of an exten­sion down
    • Con: Trad­ing with­in Supply

Addi­tion­al notes

  • Cap­i­tal preser­va­tion rule in effect

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • D1-C‑S 1856.064
  • W1-C‑S 1847.500

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • D1-C‑D 1825.850

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
