News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

12:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down and MACD was positive and losing value. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.6660 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6669. Since I was only 10 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.6650), and because I was only risking 9 pips on the trade, I decided to go for th next 50 or 00 level which in this case was 1.6600.

Entry: Short at 1.6660 Stop: 1.6669 Target: 1.6600

2:15am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-9 pips)
