Current Trend= The trend remained up until 8am EST. From 4am – 8am EST, a new trend change candle formed and changed the trend from up to DOWN. After 8am EST, the trend remained down the rest of the day.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

1:15am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD was negative and gaining value. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9935 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9920. Since I was 15 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.9950.

Entry: Long at 1.9935

Stop: 1.9920

Initial Target: 1.9950
