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 went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.6033 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6021. Since I was 17 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6050.

Entry: Long at 1.6033 Stop: 1.6021 Target: 1.6050

4:00am EST – Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-12 pips)
