Today’s Surf

12:15, 12:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade but MACD was already negative so there was no entry.

10:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD was positive and losing value. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9653 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9716. Since I was only 3 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.9650), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 63. This put my initial target at 1.9590.

Entry: Short at 1.9653

Stop: 1.9716

Initial Target: 1.9590

2:15am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time and I had to end my trading day so I went ahead and took my profit and exited at 1.9621.

    I’m using metatrader, but I have the same MACD settings as you and for some reason I get a different histogram output. Any idea why? Other than that, great update. 32 pips well earned.

    Oh nevermind. Found out that the standard MACD indicator in Metatrader is incorrect and that the custom indicator OsMA is what should be used. :)
