Today’s Surf

3:45am EDT- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.4587 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.4648. Since I was 37 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4550.

Entry: 1.4587

Stop: 1.4648

Target: 1.4550

4:30am EDT- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

    Wassup homie, just like to say thanks again for all your help. But one ?. what is the R multiple? Oh yeah don’t feel bad about today, I was down 78 pips, but was able to get back all but 10 of them. I’m using your system on the EUR/USD and USD/JPY. But I’ve adjusted the EMA, RSI, and the Stochastic. Still in the trial and error part of it. But once I start filling more better about it, I’ll do as you did, by passing it on. I’ve found that when you give back, you tend to recieve more. So thanks again for everything!!!!!

    Hi netcoil, I think a crossover Candle is the candle and before were one side of the MA , and close at the other side.
