Swing trading is a medium-term trading style that is used by traders who like to profit from upswings and downswings in stock prices.
This trading style requires patience as swing trading trades are usually held for a few days at a time, from a minimum of two days to several weeks.
It’s the ‘swing’ in the asset’s price, from one price value to another, that gives the trading method its name.
The key is to keep an eye on the movement of different shares so that a trader can get in at a level that’s appropriate for them, and get out a short time later with a profit.
It is ideal for those who can’t monitor their charts throughout the day but have a couple of hours to spare every now and then to analyse the market.
