News events to watch for today :
3:00am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid entry.
The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5640 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5670. Since I was 40 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5600.
Entry: Short at 1.5640 Stop: 1.5670 Target: 1.5600
4:00am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-30 pips)
Trade Result: -30 pips R-Multiple: -1.00
