The trend was UP the entire day.
Today I only looked for long trades.
News events to watch for today:
4:45am 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 1.4781 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.4729. Since I was 19 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4800.
Entry: Long at 1.4781 Stop: 1.4729 Target: 1.4800
5:00am EST– My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.4800 and set my next target for 1.4850
5:15am EST– My 2nd target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.4850 and set my next target for 1.4900
5:30am EST– Unfortunately I got stopped out at my 2nd target. (+69 pips)
Trade Result: +69 pips R-Multiple: 1.32
