Today’s Surf

12:00am EDT– 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 1.4409 with a stop at the most recent low at 1.4364. Since I was 41 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my target at 1.4450.

Entry: Long at 1.4409

Stop: 1.4364

Target: 1.4450

1:30pm EDT- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.4446.

3:15am EDT– 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.

Target: 1.4450

4:15pm EDT- My target wasn’t hit by this time. News was coming out at 4:30am EDT, so I manually exited my trade at 1.4404.

5:15am EDT– There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, stochastics were trending up, but MACD was already positive. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

7:30am EDT– 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.
