Today’s Surf

12:30am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9871 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9857. Since I was 29 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.9900.

Entry: Long at 1.9871
Stop: 1.9857
Initial Target: 1.9900am 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.

2:30am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

4:30am EST– This was a news candle so there was no entry.

7:30am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. However, MACD was already positive and it was too close to a news candle. Because of this, I did not enter.

9:45am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, and MACD went from negative to positive. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.9878 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.9854. Since I was 22 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.9900.

10:15am EST– My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.9900 and set my next target for 1.9950.

11:30am EST– I got really close to 1.9950 but the price didn’t hit. Since I was close, I manually exited my trade. I got out at 1.9947.
