Swing Trading can be so much fun! It doesn’t involve too much time. However, with swing traders you have different time goals. For example you found a few stocks you’re interested in buying or selling. But set your holding time anywhere between overnight to two weeks.
Instead of just holding the stock until it goes to whatever price range as with buy and hold, you have specific targets and stops.
Swing trading is mainly stocks (either long or short positions) and rarely for longer than two weeks.
