Today’s Surf

12:30am 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 1.8656 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.8682. Since I was only 6 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.8650), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 26. This put my initial target at 1.8630.

Entry: Short at 1.8656

Stop: 1.9682

Initial Target: 1.8630

1:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.
