The trend was UP the entire day until 7am EST. From 3am – 7am EST a new trend change candle formed and changed the trend from up to DOWN. After 7am EST, the trend remained down the rest of the day.
Today I only looked for long trades until 7am EST. After 7am EST I only looked for short trades.

1:15, 6:30am 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.
8:15am EST – Didn’t even consider this possible signal because it was a news candle.
