Today’s Surf

1:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down and MACD was positive and losing value. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5612 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5620. Since I was 12 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5600.

Entry: Short at 1.5612 Stop: 1.5620 Target: 1.5600

2:15am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-8 pips)

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

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5610 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5625. Since I was only 10 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5600), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 15 pips.
