News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

3:15am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD was negative and gaining value. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.6115 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6100. Since I was 35 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6150.

Entry: Long at 1.6115 Stop: 1.6100 Target: 1.6150
