Default Common Stock Trading Techniques

Swing trading is a trading style in which stocks, commodities or index are bought or sold by a trader within a period of one to four days. The ultimate aim of swing trader is to make profits by riding on the direction of the major market trends. The traders aim to discover this extraordinary potential of the stocks that move in a really short period of time and make profits by trading in them. He uses a number of strategies that help him identify this trend and discover the high probability trades. He studies market patterns and make use of market indicators that enable him reach the goal of a profitable trade.

Swing trading process can be used in any kind of market but it is most popular in stocks. There are two major tendencies that a trader needs to look for if he wants to deal in stocks. Firstly, the stock should have a tendency to trend. Stocks show a sporadic movement at times and there is no explanation of its movement in that particular style. Swing trader must trade in such stocks that trends and not the one that move sideways.

Secondly, the stocks that the trader is dealing in should not be volatile. Such stocks do have a potential of a good income but they are very difficult to trade. The traders need time and if his stocks are moving too fast or show abrupt movement in one particular direction, he will not be able to have time to plan his entry or exit. So it can be safely concluded that a successful swing trading in stocks can be achieved if the trader is sure about which stocks trend more than move sideways. Also stocks showing erratic or abrupt movement without an explanation are definitely not fit for him to trade in.

Active trading is the act of buying and selling securities based on short-term movements to profit from the price movements on a short-term stock chart. The mentality associated with an active trading strategy differs from the long-term, buy-and-hold strategy found among passive or indexed investors. Active traders believe that short-term movements and capturing the market trend are where the profits are made.

There are various methods used to accomplish an active trading strategy, each with appropriate market environments and risks inherent in the strategy. Here are four of the most common active trading strategies and the built-in costs of each strategy.

If you are trading stocks, then I think you should focus on long-term investments. I do not think you can achieve very high profits trading shares. This asset price does not fluctuate so actively to get a good a profit overnight. You can also try CFDs trading, but you need to find a reliable broker for this. Check brokers blacklist before investing money.
