News events to watch for today :
- 4:30am EDT- UK Claimant Count Change
12:00am 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 1.3944 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.4020. Since I was 44 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.3900.
1:45am EDT- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.3900 and set my next target for 1.3850.
2:00am EDT- Unfortunately I was stopped out at 1.3900.
