Today’s Surf

2:15am 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 1.4940 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.4926. Since I was 10 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.4950.

Entry: Long at 1.4940; Stop: 1.4926; Target: 1.4950
