5:15am EST– There was a potential signal here but because it was right before news, I did not enter.
9:45am EST– 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 1.4541 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.4633. Since I was 41 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4500.
Entry: Short at 1.4541
10:00am EST– My target was hit. Price didn’t make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.4505.
Trade Result: +36 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD) R-Multiple: 0.39
