Today’s Surf

5:00am 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 2.0012 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9981. Since I was 38 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 2.0050.

Entry: Long at 2.0012
Stop: 1.9981
Initial Target: 2.0050

8:15am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time. I knew that news was coming out at 8:30am EST so I went ahead and closed my trade. I exited at 2.0030.


Trade Result: +18 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD: R-Multiple: 0.58
