Today’s Surf

2:00am 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 1.9551 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9578. Since I was only 1 pip waway from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.9550), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 27. This put my initial target at 1.9524.

Entry: Short at 1.9551

Stop: 1.9578

Initial Target: 1.9524

2:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

3:30am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. However, MACD was already negative so it cancelled out the signal. No entry!


Trade Result: -27 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD!) R-Multiple: -1.00
