Today’s Surf

11:15am 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 1.5905 with a stop at the most recent high at 1.5945. Since I was only 5 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5900), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 40. This put my initial target at 1.5865.

Entry: Short at 1.5905 Stop: 1.4945 Target: 1.4865

As of now this trade is still live. Remember to use your discretion at this point since it is past 12pm EST.

    You need to adjust the typo in the stop and target for the 1/7 trade post. (1.59 and 58 vs 1.49 and 48)

    BTW, even thought this one didn’t work out, this is still great stuff! Thanks!
