Today I only looked for short trades until 11am EST. After 11am EST, I only looked for long trades.
News events to watch for today :
1:45am 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 1.4183 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.4190. Since I was 33 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.4150
Entry: Short at 1.4183 Stop: 1.4190 Target: 1.4150
2:00am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-7 pips)
7:45am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down but MACD was already negative from the previous candle. This cancelled out the signal and I did not enter.
Trade Result: -7 pips R-Multiple: -1.00
