In the past 3 years I have racked up an 800% gain in my account by swingtrading. I define swingtrading as holding a position from 2 days to several months in order to take advantage of the upside or downside momentum in a stock. Stocks are chosen using technical analysis and basic chart patterns. Entry and exit points are also determined through technical analysis. I'm starting this thread to explain how I have successfully swingtraded in the goal of helping others on here. I also will explain portfolio and risk management techniques which bring the whole strategy together. My aim is to post one educational article a day in order to give you time to digest them and come back to the elitetrader site regularly.
