Current Trend

The trend was down the entire day.

Today I only looked for short trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

4:30am EST- There was a valid signal here but because it was a news candle I did not enter.

10:15am 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 1.5501 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5552. Since I was only 1 pip away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5500), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 51 pips. This put my initial target at 1.5450.

Entry: Short at 1.5501 Stop: 1.5552 Target: 1.5450

11:45am EST- Unfortunately my target wasn’t hit by this time. Since it was 12 noon I decided to go ahead and exit my trade. I exited at 1.5480. (+21 pips)

Trade Result: +21 pips R-Multiple: 0.41

    Might be a good idea to change the date from “10” (yr) to “11”.
