What is Swing trading?

Swing Trading combines technical analysis and fundamental analysis; This is due to the fact that a Swing Trader can hold positions for several days so he is more exposed to the impact of economic news.

Swing Trading Features

Operations are held for more than one day.

Technical analysis is used to define entry points and identify trends.

Very useful style for those who cannot monitor the charts all day.

The Stop Loss levels used will be higher than those used when Day Trading or Scalping.

The Spread is not as significant as in Day Trading since more extensive Take Profit levels are sought.

Fundamental news that may impact the price of the assets being traded are monitored.
