12:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD was negative and gaining value.. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9817 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9812. Since I was 33 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my target at 1.9850.
Entry: Long at 1.9817
Initial Target: 1.9850
1:45am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time and I knew that news was coming out at 2:00am EST, so I closed my trade. I managed to exit out at 1.9837.
9:00am 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 1.9755 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9782. Since I was only 5 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.9750), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 27. This put my initial target at 1.9728.
Entry: Short at 1.9755
Initial Target: 1.9728
9:45am EST- My target was hit by this time and I knew that news was coming out at 10:00am EST, so I closed my trade. I managed to exit out at 1.9750.
