News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

12:15am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, but MACD was already positive from the previous candle. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

4:15am EST– I didn’t consider this possible signal because it was right before the 4:30am EST news.

5:15am 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 entry.

The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5673 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5693. Since I was 23 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.5650.

Entry: Short at 1.5673 Stop: 1.5693 Target: 1.5650

8:15am EST– My target wasn’t hit by this time. Since news was coming out at 8:30am EST, I decided to manually exit my trade. I got out at 1.5666. (+7 pips)
