1:30 am EDT- 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 1.5297 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5354. Since I was 47 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5250.
Entry: Short at 1.5297
Initial Target: 1.5250
3:00 am EDT- My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.5250 and set my next target for 1.5200.
3:15 am EDT- My 2nd target was hit at 1.5200. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.5200 and set my next target at 1.5150. During this same candle, my 3rd target was hit at 1.5150. This time, price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.5170.
Trade Result: +127 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD) R-Multiple: 2.23
