News events to watch for today :
- 4:30am EST– UK Claimant Count Change
2:15am 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 1.9534 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9555. Since I was 34 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my target at 1.9500.
Entry: Short at 1.9534
Initial Target: 1.9500
2:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.
4:15am EST- There was a signal here, but it was right before news so I did not enter.
Trade Result: -21 pips (THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE SPREAD): R-Multiple: -1.00
