Premarket Prep USDCAD 05062020

This is my pre­mar­ket prep for today’s Euro­pean ses­sion for the Forex pair USDCAD. This prep builds off of my week­ly trade plan I made here:

The pur­pose of a pre­mar­ket prep is to make alter­ations to my week­ly trad­ing plan and adjust a cer­tain bias if need be. 

These were the hypo­thet­i­cals in my week­ly trad­ing plan:

  1. Swing Rever­sal H4 Sup­ply ZOI (com­plet­ed 60%)
    1. Price action con­firm­ing on H4 reject­ing H4 Sup­ply ZOI
    2. Pos­si­ble short entry around 1.417
    3. Tar­gets 1.411, 1.406, 1.402, extend­ed tar­get 1.396
  2. M30 VWAP BD (com­plet­ed 100%, tar­gets hit dur­ing NY)
    1. Price action + MP extend­ing IB con­firm­ing a break below VWAP
    2. Pos­si­ble short around 1.406
    3. Tar­gets 1.402, 1.396
  3. Prev. Day High Reversal
    1. M30 Price action + MP extend­ing IB con­firm­ing rejection
    2. Pos­si­ble short around 1.409
    3. Tar­gets 1.406, 1.402, 1.396

New changes

  • Opened a demo account with LCG and JFD. Try­ing out LCG today. I have one MT4 with this demo account for chart­ing and one MT4 for entries with my bro­ker. On this lat­ter screen I will only keep open the M30 mar­ket pro­file chart. Please advise on how you have set up your software/screens/. I nor­mal­ly pre­fer the trades I take to be on the same I do my chart­ing on. The quotes from my bro­ker is almost iden­ti­cal of that of LCG (dis­crep­an­cy of 0.00002–0.00003 which is negligible).
  • Only non-con­jec­ture com­men­tary in pre­mar­ket plan and dur­ing the session.
