Today I only looked for long trades
News events to watch for today :
1:30am 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 1.8103 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.7989. Since I was 47 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.8150.
Entry: Long at 1.8103
Initial Target: 1.8150
3:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. Ouch!
9:15am EST- There was a signal here but MACD was already positive which cancelled out the signal. No entry.
Trade Result: +24 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD) R-Multiple: 0.39
