Today’s Surf

1:15am 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 signal. I entered at the close of the candle at 1.6086 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6091. Since I was 36 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6050.
