  1. To all you swingtraders out there...

    Do you tend to trade the swings in the same stocks over and over again, or do you scan/trade any stocks that fit your criteria?

    I used to keep tabs on a basket of stocks and do decently. I now use stockcharts.com to scan for stocks that fit into what im looking for. I now trade anything that fits, but I notice i tend to neglect/miss obvious moves in stocks that Ive tracked before. I am also looking towards seasonal/fundamental plays prior to using a TA entry.

    I like trading anything that fits because there are more opportunities out there daily, but I feel that there is a drawback because I dont have a feel for how the particular stock moves, what they do, etc.

    Just looking for your opinions/thoughts.
  2. same stocks off a list of about 100. the list gets updated often though.
  3. I trade patterns here. Any stock meeting my criteria is included. My criteria include a price and volume minimum requirement, though.
  4. I dont even know what a swing is, lol. I guess it's the same thing as a channel.
