News events to watch for today :
1:30am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD was negative and gaining value. This was a valid entry.
The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.6674 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.6658. Since I was 26 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6700.
