The trend was DOWN the entire day.
Today I only looked for short trades.
News events to watch for today :
3:45am 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 1.6039 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6056. Since I was 39 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6000.
Entry: Short at 1.6039 Stop: 1.6056 Target: 1.6000
4:45am EST – Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-17 pips)
8:45, 10:45am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down but MACD was already negative from the previous candle. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.
Trade Result: -17 pips R-Multiple: -1.00
