News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

1:15am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5465 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5440. Since I was 35 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my target at 1.5500.

Entry: Long at 1.5465 Stop: 1.5440 Target: 1.5500

2:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-25 pips)

6:45am EST- There was almost a signal here but MACD didn’t meet our criteria. Also because it was before a news candle I would not have entered even if it was a valid signal.

    G’Day. Rob here from Australia.
    May I make a suggestion to just to help out myself & others who live in different time zones.
    On your Charts that you disply(4Hr & 15min) could you put in a Vertical Line so as to show when the day actually begins. Sometimes I find it difficult or time consuming to match up candles on my charts to yours. A vertical line (dotted) indicating the start of your new day would be realy helpful.
    Of course it is only a suggestion and entirely up to you.
    Cheers
