News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

12:30am 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.

2:30am 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.

10:45am 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 1.4753 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.4781. Since I was only 3 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.4750), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 28 pips. This put my initial target at 1.4725.

Entry: Short at 1.4753 Stop: 1.4781 Target: 1.4725

12:00pm EST– My target was hit. Since it was 12 noon EST, I decided to just close out my trade. I got out at 1.4727. ( +26 pips)
