Today’s Surf

7:15am 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 1.6167 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6202. Since I was 17 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6150.

Entry: Short at 1.6167 Stop: 1.6202 Target: 1.6150

8:15am EST- My target was hit. Price didn’t make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.6152. (+15 pips)
