Main Trend

Current Trend= The trend remained down until 12 pm ET. From 8am – 12pm ET a new trend change candle formed and changed the trend from down to UP. The trend remained up for the rest of the day.

Today I looked for short trades until 12pm ET. After 12pm ET I only looked for long trades

Today’s Surf

1:45 am ET- 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 entry. The entry was at the close of the candle which was at 9789 with a stop at the most recent swing high which was at 9804. Since I was 39 pips away from the nearest 50 level I set my target at 9750.

2:00 am ET- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

3:15 am ET- 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 entry.

    Hi PS, did you happen to notice the sell crossover at 9:30am also. Entry at 9754 -and recent swing high at 9797. The set up looks valid –but then it moved the wrong direction for a 42 pip loss. Just wonderng why you did not enter that set up. Thanks.

    Hi Pinetree- My signal occurred right during the US Long Term TIC flows which was an important news event, and as a result I didn’t enter because of the news factor. It’s marked on my chart but I forgot to make a note about it. Hope that helps! Happy trading :)
