Current Trend

The trend was UP the entire day.

Today I only looked for long trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

2:00am 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 signal. I entered at the close of the candle at 1.6111 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6100. Since I was 39 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6150.

Entry: Long at 1.6111; Stop: 1.6100; Target: 1.6150

3:15am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-11 pips)

6:00am 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 signal. I entered at the close of the candle at 1.6110 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6090. Since I was 40 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6150.

Entry: Long at 1.6110; Stop: 1.6090; Target: 1.6150

7:15am EST- My target wasn’t hit by this time. Since news was coming out at 7:30am EST, I decided to manually exit my trade. I got out at 1.6105. (-5 pips)

10:00am EST- Never take a trade on a news candle. Either way it wouldn’t have been a valid trade because MACD was already positive from the previous candle.

11:15am EST- Did not enter because it was near 12 noon EST. This also wouldn’t have a been a valid signal because MACD was already positive from the previous candle.
