Current Trend= The trend remained up the entire day.
Today I only looked for long trades.
News events to watch for today :
- 4:30am EST- UK PPI Input
1:00am 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 1.9852 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9821. Since I was 48 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.9900.
Entry: Long at 1.9852
Initial Target: 1.9900
4:15am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time. I knew that news was coming out at 4:30am EST so I decided to close my trade. I cut my losses and exited at 1.9835.
5:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade but MACD was already positive which cancelled the signal. No entry!
Trade Result: -17 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD: R-Multiple: -0.54
