would not exist.
After trying VectorVest, TC2000, MetaStock, and other programs, I can’t seem to win in swing trading options. I hear AIQ is good, but what is the best software for swing trading? Or am I kidding myself with software? Should I be using a top-of-the-line advisory?
The first thing you need to do is spend some time coming up with a strategy that works for you. We have published several articles in the past on swing trading. You may even find code for a swing-trading strategy in our Traders’ Tips section at our website, www.Traders.com. After you find a strategy, then you
can think about finding software to implement it, since you’ll know better at that point what features you need. If you have already done that without success, then you may want to think about finding a trading mentor who has succeeded in swing trading.—Editor
