Current Trend

The trend was UP the entire day.

Today I only looked for long trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

1:00am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, but MACD was already positive from the previous candle. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

6:00am 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 1.5559 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5531. Since I was 41 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I put my initial target at 1.5600.

Entry: Long at 1.5559 Stop: 1.5531 Target: 1.5600

11:15am EST- My target was hit. Price closed right at 1.5600 and since it was already late in the day, I decided to go ahead and close out my trade. I exited right at 1.5600. (+41 pips)
