1:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD was negative and gaining value. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5659 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5645. Since I was 41 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5700.

    @mragustyn- I’m right there with you. If you’ve been around then these droughts become easier to take. Just gotta keep staying disciplined and you will be rewarded in the long run!

    @Lordpipi- I do have other systems I trade but are more longer term strategies. I do not like to trade 2 of the same style of system (i.e. 2 daytrading systems, 2 swing trade systems).
