3:45am 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 1.9741 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9712. Since I was only 9 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.9750), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 29. This put my initial target at 1.9770.
Entry: Long at 1.9741
Initial Target: 1.9770
4:00am EST- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break of my target, so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.9768.
Trade Result: +27 pips: R-Multiple: 0.93
