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 1.6148 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6134. Since I was only 2 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.6150), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade which in this case was 14 pips. This put my initial target at 1.6162.

Entry: Long at 1.6148 Stop: 1.6134 Target: 1.6162

2:15am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-14 pips)

2:45am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, MACD was negative and gaining value, but stochastics were trending down. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

    I try this system on demo for 3 months and I have nearly the same results. But all in all I don’t think that the system longer works! what are you thinking about it??

    The system works if you are being sponsored by all the big brokers in the world. The real money in forex is either being a broker or getting revenue from them. Dont forget babypips.com is funded by fxcm et al. What you think babypips?
