Today’s Surf

2:30am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.6177 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6194. Since I was 27 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6150.

Entry: Short at 1.6177 Stop: 1.6194 Target: 1.6150

4:15am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time. Since news was coming out at 4:30am EST, I decided to close out my trade. I exited at 1.6163. (+14 pips)
