What is swing trading?

Trades are held for a few days to several months. The term refers to a medium time period for trades, longer than day trading and shorter than long-term trading or investing.

Are the listed trades real, are they your trades?

Yes, they are my trades. I only list the stocks and futures that I trade. Those picks that are analyzed but not traded are not listed.

How will I help you trade successfully?

I will provide you with a trading system that is easy to understand. This system will provide you more winners than losers and with gains that are much bigger than losses. You will increase your confidence and start thinking of yourself as a winner in trading! I reinforce these trading rules every time I write about a a stock or future. I will provide you with a system of limiting risk when you’re in a trade both by money and time. I will answer all your questions promptly.

Why does swing trading produce better results than either day trading or long-term investing?

Day traders rarely make money because the time period is too limited; it takes time for a stock or futures contract to move enough to make you a reasonable amount of money. Another problem is that very few people have the time or the inclination to watch the market almost constantly. Good swing trading trades are held for a couple of weeks to a couple of months. After this profits are taken and held until the next opportunity comes along. Twelve good swing trades (or bunches of trades), will make much more money than a single bunch of long-term trades held for the entire year.

What do you get as a subscriber?

Detailed stock and futures picks giving you all that you need to swing trade profitably. My custom sectors of the market show you what parts of the stock market are getting stronger versus those getting weaker. I make the underlying stocks in each sector available so that you can easily do your own research. Use this to find the stocks growing the best when the market is strong or sinking most when it is weak. Futures swing trading can make you much more money then swing trading stocks, because of leverage. Different futures have varying degrees of leverage. In wheat, for example, each point is worth $50. Take a look at this short trade of Wheat where the gain was $4,840 in only a month and a half with only $1,890 in margin requirements and an initial risk of only $850. You will get my futures seasonal trends and tests that show you how each future is likely to perform. You also get my Commitment of Traders report that shows you what the insiders and big traders are doing. Take a look at our trading system based on my Commitment of Traders Report.

Are you a beginner?

Beginners are either afraid of losing money in bad trades or afraid of missing opportunities to make money in good ones. Fear of losing leads to trade inertia (too few trades) and fear of missing out leads to too many bad trades. Two things help tremendously: following a trading system (you will get one as part of your subscription) and by limiting risk in both money and time.

Isn’t stock trading risky and futures trading very risky?

All investments carry risk (learn more here). The object is to limit the risk to a level that you can handle. The amount of risk in a stock trade is the difference between the execution price and the price of your protective stop, multiplied by the number of shares. A protective stop, or stop market, automatically sells your position if the price drops below the level of your protective stop.

Futures trades also have limited risk when protective stops are used. The risk is the difference between the entry and protective stop price multiplied by the leverage. Different futures have varying degrees of leverage. The U.S. 30-Year Bond, for example, has small leverage of only $30 per 1/32 of a full point. An average move in the bond might be 3/4 of a full point or worth about $720 per contract. Gasoline has very high leverage where one cent is $420. A protective stop that is only five cents away from the execution price would have a risk of $2,100 per contract.
