Swing Trading Strategy

A swing trading strategy that many professional traders use is also easy to put into practice.

Before I explain this trading strategy, I would like to remind you that trading is about probabilities. A professional trader understands that the method she uses is going to produceprofits only so many times out of every one hundred.

Unlike position traders, who can be right less than 50 percent of the time and still be a profitable trader, short term traders have a higher cost of doing business. They pay more commissions and make less profit per trade. So while a position trader can be profitable winning only half the time a swing trader needs to be right 7 out of 10 times...or more.

Using a protective stop is vital to the survival of swing traders, whether trading in stocks or commodities. A good ruleof thumb is, to use a 1 to 3 risk reward. If you expect to make $800 on the trade...risk no more than $300.

Here is the swing trading strategy that has served many professional traders.

This method works best in a up trend, the stronger the better. Look for a new high within the up trend and look to enter thetrade after three down days. Don't under estimate the simplicity of this swing trading strategy

This chart is a good example of this swing trading strategy in action.
