Today’s Surf

2:30am 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 1.9503 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9542. Since I was only 3 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 39. This put my initial target at 1.9464.

Entry: Short at 1.9503

Stop: 1.9542

Initial Target: 1.9464

4:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

entry2

Trade Result: -39 pips (THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SPREAD): R-Multiple: -1.00
