Swing Trading is a type of trading that tries to gain from stock between one and four days. Traders using this system access the technical analysis of a stock that has short term momentum and are not interested in fundamentals or intrinsic value of the stock but their current price, the trend and pattern.
To gain from such activity, the trader is required to act swiftly and therefore it is common type of trade with those at home or those who trade within a day. It is impossible for large investors to do this as their size of investment cannot make a an open and close within a short period. It is therefore an advantage to personal traders because they do not compete with traders who have dominated the market.
With much attention, clear analysis of price trends and use of the right tools, this type of trade can be profitable to small scale investors or individuals.
