Current Trend= The trend remained down the entire day.

On Friday, I only looked for short trades.

Today’s Surf

3:00am EDT- 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 2.0426 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 2.0479. Since I was 26 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I put my initial target at 2.0400.

Entry: Short at 2.0426

Stop: 2.0479

Initial Target: 2.0400

5:00am EDT- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I managed to exit at 2.0402.

10:30am EDT- 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 2.0440 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 2.0497. Since I was 40 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I put my initial target at 2.0400.

Entry: Short at 2.0440

Stop: 2.0497

Initial Target: 2.0400

    Happy Thanksgiving Surfer,
    I’m sitting by the beach in Bolsa Chica, CA looking at real surf eating a leftover Turkey sandwich. I don’t mind the loss for the 16th because I did the same thing and it is nice to know I am following the system correctly. Thanks as usual for your blog.
