I want to create the following 3 backup jobs with the following retention plans.
Daily - MTWT - Retain 4
Weekly - F - Retain 4
Monthly - First day fo the month - Retain 1
Is it possible to NOT take the daily or Weekly backup if and when it falls on the monthly schedule?

My advice? Let both happen. They'll be tagged differently, and the daily will cycle out after the retention period expires anyway. I would schedule the monthly at a different time than the others to avoid contention.
To answer your question directly, I do not believe there is a way to avoid that scenario. Let me double-check, and if I find out differently, I'll report back!
