Swing Trading

Forex Swing Trading

Swing trading is a longer term trading style that requires patience to hold your trades for several days at a time.

It is ideal for those who can’t monitor their charts throughout the day but can dedicate a couple of hours analyzing the market every night.

This is probably best suited for those who have full-time jobs or school, but have enough free time to stay up-to-date with what is going on in the global economies.

Forex swing trading attempts to identify medium term trends and enter only when there seems to be a high probability of winning.

Because trades last much longer than one day, larger stop losses are required to weather volatility, and a forex trader must adapt that to their money management plan.

You will most likely see trades go against you during the holding time since there can be many fluctuations of the price during the shorter time frames.

It is important that you are able to remain calm during these times and trust in your analysis.

Since trades usually have larger targets, spreads won’t have as much of an impact to your overall profits. As a result, trading pairs with larger spreads and lower liquidity is acceptable.

You might want to be a forex swing trader if:

  • You don’t mind holding your trades for several days.
  • You are willing to take fewer trades, but more careful to make sure your trades are very good setups.
  • You don’t mind having large stop losses.
  • You are patient.
  • You are able to remain calm when trades move against you.

You might NOT want to be a forex swing trader if:

  • You like fast paced, action-packed trading.
  • You are impatient and like to know whether you are right or wrong immediately.
  • You get sweaty and anxious when trades go against you.
  • You can’t spend a couple of hours every day to analyze the markets.
  • You can’t give up your World of Warcraft raiding sessions.

If you have a full time job but enjoy trading on the side, then swing trading might be more your style! Make sure you swing by our “Show me the Money” thread so that you can interact with other swing traders.

波段交易

波段交易是一种长期交易方式,需要耐心地将交易保持几天。

对于那些不能整天监控图表,只能在晚上用几个小时来分析市场的交易者来说,这是一种理想的交易方式。

这可能比较适合那些有工作或要上学,而又有足够的空闲时间了解世界经济状况的人。

波段交易者试图确定中期趋势,仅在很有可能获利的情况下才会入场交易。

由于交易延续时间超过一天,需要设定较大的止损以应对波动,交易者要根据资金管理计划调整止损。

在你保持交易期间,你很有可能看到交易走势与你的预期相反,因为在较短的时间段内价格会发生波动。

最重要的是你能在这段时间内保持冷静,相信自己的分析。

由于交易目标通常较大,价差对整体收益的影响不大。因此,交易价差较大,流动率较低的货币对也是可行的。

你能成为一名波段交易者,如果:

你不介意将交易保持几天。

你愿意做较少的交易,对于确定交易设定是否合理更上心。

你不介意较大的止损设定。

你有耐心。

当交易与你的预期相反时,你能保持冷静。

你不能成为一名波段交易者,如果:

你喜欢节奏快,行动多的交易。

你没有耐心,想立即知道你的判断是对是错。

当交易与你的预期相反时,你会浑身冒汗,焦虑。

你不能每天花几小时研究市场行情。

你不能放弃你的魔兽时间。

如果你是一位全职工作者,而又喜欢交易,那波段交易将符合你的风格!
