Hi, I'm interested in comments on this fairly short Wikipedia article on swing trading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_trading Having read through it a few times now myself, it seems pretty clear and I've even applied the EMA calculation to Google over the last couple of months. Is the article oversimplifying things, or can you reasonably make use of mostly just the EMA if you're only looking back two or three weeks? One thing that did put me off was the two external links were just to sites trying to sell you something rather than providing any readily apparent real information. Instead I found stockcharts.com's discussion of moving averages much more useful: http://www.stockcharts.com/education/IndicatorAnalysis/indic_movingAvg.html Anyway, I'm obviously quite a newbie to this kind of trading, so any input you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
