5:00am EDT- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5477 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5356. Since I was 23 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5500.
Entry: Long at 1.5477
Initial Target: 1.5500
6:00am EDT- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.5493.
