12:15am 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 1.8556 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.8529. Since I was 44 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.8600.
