Why Swing Trading:
Swing trading gives the setups room and time to work with set risk. How many times do you look back at a setup you have traded and say…….”if I had only held it longer?” Most good setups need time to continue to play out.
Maybe you work full-time outside of trading and would like to trade part-time, you can’t be in front of the computer all day, swing trading give you the ability to do that.
Swing trading is generally a slower pace of trading, making it great for new traders to learn without the pressure of needing to make the trade work the same day.
