Today’s Surf

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 1.5915 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5899. Since I was 35 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5950.

Entry: Long at 1.5915 Stop: 1.5899 Target: 1.5950

2:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-16 pips)
