Weekly Trading Plan Crude Oil, Gold (XAU USD) and S&P 500 (SPX500) 04192020

This is my week­ly out­look on crude oil, gold and the S&P 500. Basi­cal­ly the lev­els that I will be look­ing at where it has a high­er prob­a­bilis­tic chance the mar­ket will start react­ing. Then I come up with ways I think the mar­ket might react around those lev­els. Dur­ing the ses­sion I then wait for the mar­ket to hit those lev­els and either con­firm or reject my hypoth­e­sis. I hope that makes sense. If not, please get in touch with me. I am not sell­ing you any­thing. I just love to talk to peo­ple that are on the same path as me. So don’t be shy and reach out. 

Obser­va­tions of the mar­ket — Crude Oil

  • M: Still almost 2 weeks before the can­dle clos­es. Price is trad­ing in the bot­tom half of the can­dle but unclear if we’ll see more down­side. Will have to wait for the close of the can­dle. No Q points.
  • W: Con­sol­i­da­tion in process. Too ear­ly to say if it’s a pen­nant or flag. Con­tin­u­a­tion down pos­si­ble. Still 200+ ticks room on the down­side before hit­ting Week­ly Demand ZOI at 23.20. No Q points.
  • D: Failed to make a con­vinc­ing bull­ish move and the last 6 trad­ing days have all been clos­ing down. Fur­ther­more price is enter­ing Dai­ly Demand ZOI around 25.40. Q points active and QLo at 23.70. 
  • H4: Price fail­ure to hold above VWAP. H4 Q points same as Dai­ly. Stronger H4 Demand ZOI (8) right at QLo 23.70.

Poten­tial tar­gets: 23.90, 22.80, 21.95, 20.60


Long: Swing Rever­sal @ Dai­ly QLo With­in Dai­ly QLo, look for con­fir­ma­tion on low­er time frames

Obser­va­tions of the mar­ket — Gold (XAU USD)

  • M: Price with­in Quar­ter­ly and month­ly QHi and Sup­ply ZOI
  • W: Long-wicked doji can­dle indi­cat­ing a pos­si­ble evening star in the making
  • D: Con­sol­i­da­tion below strong Sup­ply ZOI with con­se­quent BD
  • H4: Retest of H4 Sup­ply ZOI with an Evening star, price moved down to Demand ZOI and formed a bear­ish engulf­ing just above it.

    WTI: Bull­ish engulf­ing above H4 QLo dur­ing AS but no move yet. IB just fin­ished. Mar­ket not mov­ing yet. Price with­in Devel­op­ing Val­ue Area (DVA)

    Gold: Price with­in H4 Demand ZOI but no push back. Price with­in DVA.

    SPX500: Slight drop and imme­di­ate retrace­ment more than 50%. Price with­in DVA. Lack of clar­i­ty at the moment

    Took Prof­it 1X @ 1692.48

    I am still try­ing to get com­fort­able tak­ing trades in com­bi­na­tion with mar­ket pro­file and I under­stand I have to aim for AT LEAST 2X. I will mon­i­tor the trade to see if it would have reached my target.

    Holy shit: It would have hit my tar­get at 1689.67 with ease. It obliv­er­at­ed it and dropped beyond Pre­vi­ous POC to 7X @ 1671
