The trend was DOWN the entire day.
Today I only looked for short trades.
News events to watch for today:
2:45am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending up and MACD was positive and losing value. This was a valid entry.
The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.3211 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.3235. Since I was only 11 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.3200), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 24. This put my initial target at 1.3187.
Entry: Short at 1.3211 Stop: 1.3235 Target: 1.3187
3:30am EST– My target was hit. Price made a clean break so I moved my stop to 1.3187 and set my next target for 1.3150.
3:45am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out at my original target of 1.3187 (+24 pips)
Trade Result: +24 pips R-Multiple: 1.00
