News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

2:15am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5815 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5791. Since I was 35 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I put my initial target at 1.5850.

Entry: Long at 1.5815 Stop: 1.5791 Target: 1.5850
