Today’s Surf

1:45am EST- 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 1.6362 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.6398. Since I was only 12 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.6350), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 36. This put my initial target at 1.6326.

Entry: Short at 1.6362 Stop: 1.6398 Target: 1.6326

2:45am EST- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.6326 and set my next target for 1.6300. During this same candle, my 2nd target at 1.6300 was hit. Price did not make a clean break of this target so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.6305.

9:15am EST- There was a valid signal here but because it was close to a news report, I did not enter.

    I use mt4 and at this time my macd was already negative. Is it normal to happen?

    Hi Cowabunga that was very good. I really have to admit that your system works very well. The only thing is how can I get the (trend change candle)? I would appreciate it a lot.
    thanks!
