Today’s Surf

1:00am 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 1.4910 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.4962. Since I was only 10 pips away from the nearest 00 or 50 level (1.4900), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 52. This put my initial target at 1.4858.

Entry: Short at 1.4910

Stop: 1.4962

Initial Target: 1.4858

2:45am EDT- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.
