News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

5:30am 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 1.5943 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5902. Since I was only 7 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5950), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 41. This put my initial target at 1.5984.

Entry: Long at 1.5943 Stop: 1.5902 Target: 1.5984

7:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-41 pips)

    Cowabunga worked for me in the early days of the month, but soon after that I got in late into the market or the signal were not tally with my other PA analysis.
