A swing is a measurement of price
movement that is usually opposite of
the previous price movement. Swing
trading takes advantage of the fact that
the market is cyclic, even during trends.
For instance, during a seven-day
uptrend of a security, there’s still bound
to be three or four down days. By
carefully entering and exiting trends
based on the market cycle, swing traders
can capitalize their gains. Unlike
daytrading, swing trading occurs by
following the intraweek price changes
of a security.
