Today’s Surf

2:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid signal. I entered at the close of the candle at 1.5988 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6008. Since I was 38 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.5950.

Entry: Short at 1.5988; Stop: 1.6008; Target: 1.5950

3:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-20 pips)


Trade Result: -20 pips R-Multiple: -1.00

    Hey pipsurfer. Wondered if you would mind sharing your .lua code. I read you were using fxcm somewhere. Also wondered if you were getting alerts sent to your iPhone 5 and how? I can’t get it to work for me…Thanks for everything you do

    Also, wasn’t sure about the valid entry sign the morning as it was mlk day. Are holidays generally safe trades in your experience. It was a winner, even almost went to target price 2 !
