Today’s Surf

12:15am EDT- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD was positive and losing value. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.4488 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.4521. Since I was 38 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4450.

Entry: Short at 1.4488

Stop: 1.4521

Target: 1.4450

12:30am EDT- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.4450 and set my next target at 1.4400.

12:45am EDT- Unfortunately I was stopped out at 1.4450.

5:45am 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.
