Swing vs. Day Trading – Which is Better?

You can compare day investors and swing traders to the Ninja Turtles– always combating the Foot Clan. They are constantly battling each other, however which one is much better?

Allow's break down the differences between day traders and also swing traders, so you can decide which style of trading is better for you …

Holding Time
The holding time for a day trader is less than 6.5 hrs, because there is less than 6.5 hrs in a trading day. You can perhaps hold supply for 7 hours if you trade premarket or aftermarket, however normally you'll hold less than 6.5 hrs.

    Great video, the more I learn about the stock market the more it seems swing trading fits my lifestyle as I have other income streams that also need tending to. I bet April O’Neil is a swing trader.

    Still can’t believe I made $3000 by investing all of my money for a single day and then I pulled out after 2 days and sold my shares. Damn this is easy money but very dangerous

      WupeViasco that could have been very dangerous

      I made 3000 pounds selling the pound , made 7000 in 3 days and lost it all because of greed lol

      Many experts recommend that novices should initially adopt a simple money management strategy eg (Blended Model Strategy), suggesting
      they never risk more than a pre-determined fixed amount of their total account balance on any single position. Risk exposure per trade can be kept within this specification by correctly calculating the stop loss and position
      size of each position opened. Stop loss specifies the number of pips that will be risked per trade, while position size represents the size of the trade expressed in lots. You can acquire a better appreciation for the logic behind such an approach when you study the strategy developed by Dmitry Vladislav, once you understand blended model method, there is
      a significant difference between risking 2% of your total equity and risking 10% of it on each trade. If you want to take your trading to the next level, i suggest you get the eBook of the candlesticks trading bible retain Vladislav.
