Premarket Prep USDCAD 05142020

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 find setups with­in my week­ly trade plan bias.

Non-con­jec­ture obser­va­tions of the market

  • Price with­in MN1/W1 QHi
  • Week­ly Phase 3 still in effect
  • D1 QPs act­ing as bounce points with­in week­ly dis­tri­b­u­tion range
  • Return to D1 QHi and Sup­ply ZOI 1.40962 (estab­lished begin­ning April) with some low­er time frame con­ges­tion in its path
  • H4 show­ing mul­ti­ple demand ZOIs trend­ing up
    • Week­ly trend is up, Dai­ly down, H4 up
  • Price slight­ly above D1 QHi but test­ed H4 QHi with small inside bar cre­at­ing a sup­ply ZOI align­ing new­ly formed H4 sup­ply con­ter­mi­nous almost exact­ly with pre­vi­ous­ly estab­lished Dai­ly con­ter­mi­nous 1.40962
    • H1 test­ing this lev­el and formed a bear­ish engulf­ing dur­ing AS but no push lower
  • Mar­ket Profile
    • AS opened above PVAH and range in a con­sol­i­dat­ing pat­tern below prev day high 1.41146
    • Cur­rent­ly price trad­ing above PVAH and range of the Lon­don session
  • Side note: M30 KC chan­nel trend­ing up, although price re-entered KC it is still above VWAP

Sen­ti­ment — Slight­ly Bearish

  • D1 Sup­ply ZOI 1.40962 / D1 QHi

    • Option 2: Tar­get hit (SL 20 pips 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
    • Use TPO con­fir­ma­tion or inval­i­da­tion for direc­tion­al deci­sions by look­ing for 
      • 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
