Today’s Surf

2:00am EST- There was a moving average crossover for a long trade. RSI was greater than 50, MACD was negative and gaining value, but stochastics were still trending down. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.

4:15am 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 1.6423 with a stop at the most recent low at 1.6366. Since I was 27 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6450.

Entry: Long at 1.6423 Stop: 1.6366 Target: 1.6450
