2:00am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. However, stochastics were still trending up which cancelled out the signal. I did not enter on this one.
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 1.9501 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9535. Since I was only 1 pip away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 34. This put my initial target at 1.9467.
Entry: Short at 1.9501
Initial Target: 1.9467
5:45am EST- My target was hit. Price didn’t make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.9473.
Trade Result: +28 pips (THIS DOESN’T INCLUDE SPREAD): R-Multiple: 0.82
