Cowabunga System Daily Update: Monday, 06/09/08

Had a busy day of playing catch up on Friday and didn’t get a chance to trade. I took a look at the charts though and it looks like you would’ve had a couple of small losers if you did trade. Don’t be bummed dudes. Stay disciplined and you will be rewarded!

Today’s Surf

12:15am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9689 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9670. Since I was only 11 pips 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 19. This put my initial target at 1.9708.

Entry: Long at 1.9689

Stop: 1.9670

Initial Target: 1.9708

3:00am EST- My target was hit. Price made a clean break of my target so I moved my stop to 1.9708 and set my next target for 1.9750.

3:15am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out at 1.9708.

Trade Result: +19 pips (THIS DOESN’T INCLUDE SPREAD): R-Multiple: 1.00
