The trend was UP the entire day.
Today I only looked for long trades.
News events to watch for today :
5:00am 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 signal. I entered at the close of the candle at 1.5915 with a stop at the most recent swing low at 1.5897. Since I was 35 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level I decided to put my initial target at 1.5950.
Entry: Long at 1.5915; Stop: 1.5897; Target: 1.5950
8:15am EST– My target wasn’t hit by this time. Since news was coming out at 8:30am EST, I decided to manually exit my trade. I closed out at 1.5933. (+18 pips)
Trade Result: +18 pips R-Multiple: 1.00
