Swing trading

Swing trading

It is a type of trading which combines fundamental and technical analysis to catch the most significant price movements and avoid trading at idle times. It is mostly a medium-term trading style that requires holding positions open for several days, so you should be patient enough to tolerate the period of time when the price goes against you. The key goal is to identify medium-term trends and enter the market only when there seems to be almost 100% probability of winning.  

Swing trading presupposes large price moves and therefore requires a well-judged position size management to minimize downside risks.
