Premarket Prep Gold XAUUSD 06222020

This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for Gold XAUUSD. 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.

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • H4 Sup­ply tak­en out with imme­di­ate push back from sell­ers cre­at­ing sup­ply on low­er time frames at W1-C‑S 1752.719
  • Still with­in Dai­ly Sup­ply and D1/H4 QHi
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • HK ses­sion exhaust­ed and mar­ket opened 1396 pips away from LN VAH

Com­pared against Week­ly Trad­ing Plan

  • Opened above last week’s range hit­ting W1-C‑S 1752.719

Sen­ti­ment — Slight­ly Bearish

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Shorts

  • H4-C‑S 1762.135
  • W1-C‑S 1752.719

ZOIs for Pos­si­ble Long

  • H4-C‑D 1780.334 RBR & W1-C‑D 1779.654

Focus Points for trad­ing development

  • Exit rules
    • Option 1: Time-based stop
    • Option 2: Tar­get hit (SL (369 pips + spread or x2 TP)
    • NO OPTION 3
      • UNLESS a trade is entered with­in 1 hour or half hour before the hard exit rule option 1
  • Entry rules
    • Cut off look­ing for trades at 45 min before time-based stop
    • Entry on TPO break of IB
    • Ear­ly entry with price action con­fir­ma­tion at 
      • H4 con­ter­mi­nous
      • Open far from val­ue, antic­i­pat­ing a move back to val­ue using an engulf­ing + sub­se­quent break of TPO
    • Min. X2 R/R
    • Use TPO con­fir­ma­tion or inval­i­da­tion for direc­tion­al deci­sions by look­ing for in con­junc­tion with H4 con­ter­mi­nous lines
      • TPO exten­sion with a sus­tained move (BO from IB)
      • TPO exten­sion with failed auc­tion (return to IB)
      • How this direc­tion of TPO exten­sion relates to Val­ue Area open sentiment
  • Risk Man­age­ment
    • Only take 2 trades a day but only have 1 active trade on between the assets
    • After 4 los­ing trades reduce TP to 1.5R but after 1R can con­sid­er tak­ing profits
