Current Trend

The trend was DOWN until 11am EST. From 7am – 11am EST, a new trend change candle formed and changed the trend from down to UP. After 11am EST, the trend remained UP the rest of the day.

Today I only looked for short trades until 11am EST. After 11am EST, I only looked for long trades.

News events to watch for today :

Today’s Surf

12:45am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, MACD went from positive to negative, but Stochastics were still trending up. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

1:30am EST– 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 at 1.4238 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.4251. Since I was 38 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4200.

Entry: Short at 1.4238 Stop: 1.4251 Target: 1.4200

2:00am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-13 pips)

7:30am EST- Didn’t consider this possible signal because it was close to the 8:30am EST news event.
