News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

1:45am 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 1.7895 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.7936. Since I was 45 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.7850.

Entry: Short at 1.7895

Stop: 1.7936

Initial Target: 1.7850

4:15am EST- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.7853

8:45am 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.

    Hey Pip Surfer

    Just wondering, in your videos, a purple trend change pip appears is that a unique feature of charting software or is it some kind of indicator, say like SAR but represented in a different manner.
