Swing trading is a technical-based trading system that attempts to buy low and sell high. Swing traders seek multiday or multiweek trends in the stock market in hope of entering positions as they base and turn higher.
The strategy involves discovering stocks following an upward path. This may entail the comparison of moving averages in sequence, moving-average crossovers and longer-term price changes. Swing traders next seek pullbacks with tools including Keltner Channels and short-term price changes.
