The trend was DOWN the entire day.

Today I only looked for short trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

3:15am 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 1.5173 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5198. Since I was 23 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I put my initial target at 1.5150.

Entry: Short at 1.5173; Stop: 1.5198; Target: 1.5150

3:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-25 pips)

9:45am EST– I didn’t even consider this as a possible trade since it was right before the 10:00am EST news candle.


Trade Result: -25 pips R-Multiple: -1.00
