Today’s Surf

3:45am EST- There was a valid signal here, but since it was near a news event, I did not enter.

6:15am 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 1.6824 with a stop at the most recent low at 1.6769. Since I was 26 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.6850.

Entry: Long at 1.6824 Stop: 1.6769 Target: 1.6850

8:15am EST– My target wasn’t hit by this time. Since news was coming out at 8:30am EST, I decided to close out my trade. I exited at 1.6804.


Trade Result: -20 pips (NOT INCLUDING SPREAD) R-Multiple: -0.36
