Current Trend

The trend was up until 3am EST. From 11pm – 3am EST a new trend change candle formed and changed the trend from up to DOWN. After 3am EST, the trend remained down the rest of the day.

Today I only looked for long trades until 3am EST. After 3am EST, I only looked for short trades.

Today’s Surf

6:15am EST– 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 1.6070 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.6112. Since I was 20 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.6050.

Entry: Short at 1.6070 Stop: 1.6112 Target: 1.6050

6:45am EST- My target was hit. Price did not make a clean break so I took my final profit. I exited at 1.6052. (+18 pips)
