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 1.5922 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5950. Since I was 22 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my intial target at 1.5900.
