News events to watch for today :
1:30am 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 1.6791 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6795. Since I was 41 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my target at 1.6750.
Entry: Short at 1.6791 Stop: 1.6795 Target: 1.6750
1:45am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-4 pips)
Trade Result: -4 pips R-Multiple: -1.00
