APRIL FOOLS!

You didn’t really think I was going to miss out on all the bodacious waves we’re going to catch did you?!

Main Trend

Current Trend= The trend remained down the entire day.

Today I only looked for short trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

1:15am 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 1.9827 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9840. Since I was 27 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.9800.

Entry: Short at 1.9827

Stop: 1.9840

Initial Target: 1.9800

1:30am EST- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.9800 and set my next target for 1.9750.

1:45am EST- Unfortunately I got stopped out at 1.9800.

9:15am EST- There was a valid signal here but it was close to a news report (ISM index) so I did not enter.

Trade Result: +27 pips; R-Multiple: 2.07

    May I ask why when a entry pattern has been formed, you wait for that candle to close, then enter on the next candle, I have noticed that sometimes, alot of pips can be lost while waiting for that naxt candle to open

    2 quick questions, is 1:15 the close or open time of the candle you entered. my netdania had ema5 at 1.9833, ema10 at 1.9832. Were these correct? Did you have different numbers from x-tick feed that signaled a trade? Thanks a ton, trying to match my signal with you as much as possible. Fooled me also.

    Dude…you’re the only April Fool’s prank that got me. I was thinking what a waste it would be that your great service came to an end.

    Surf on…and don’t fall off the board ;)
