Today’s Surf

9:00am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9753 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9802. Since I was only 3 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 49. This put my initial target at 1.9704.

Entry: Short at 1.9753
Stop: 1.9802
Initial Target: 1.9704

4pm EST- My target was not hit by this time and according to my rules I exit now whether up I’m or down. I managed to exit at 1.9754.


Trade Result: -1 pip (THIS DOESN’T INCLUDE SPREAD): R-Multiple: -0.02
