The trend was UP the entire day.

Today I only looked for long trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

3:00am 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 1.5892 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5866. Since I was only 8 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5900), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 26. This put my initial target at 1.5918.

Entry: Long at 1.5892 Stop: 1.5866 Target: 1.5918

3:45am EST– My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.5918 and set my next target for 1.5950.

4:00am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out at my initial target at 1.5918. (+26 pips)
