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 1.9708 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.9742. Since I was only 8 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.9700), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 34. This put my initial target at 1.9674.
Entry: Short at 1.9708
Initial Target: 1.9674
3:15am EST- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.9674 and set my next target for 1.9650.
3:30am EST- My 2nd target was hit. This time, price did not make a clean break and I took my final profit. I exited at 1.9655.
Trade Result: +53 pips (THIS DOESN’T INCLUDE SPREAD): R-Multiple: 1.55
