Intro to our Swing Trading Strategies

This video will give you a brief overview of the swing trading strategies that we use. We like to focus on strong stocks with a catalyst and technical setup that is appropriate for the trade. We also like to find trades that have rapidly moved from one extreme to the other. We have found that statistically, these trades provide the best opportunities for profiting quickly, while still managing risk.

Swing Trading Strategies: Breakouts & Breakdowns

The breakout and breakdown strategies are someone of the most well known and long standing. Learning to identify critical pivot points on a chart will keep you ahead of the curve with regard to your trading plan and confidence in execution. We like these time honored classics because they survive the test of time. We use proprietary Trade Ideas scanners to alert us to these setups. A useful tip when taking these trades is locating and validating a strong catalyst that will help boost the relative volume. The boost in relative volume combined with an ideal chart setup gives the breakout or breakdown trade the highest probability of success.

Swing Trading Strategies: Options

We love options at Warrior Trading, especially for our swing traders and those with small accounts. The power of leverage, when harnessed correctly can be a huge advantage to retail traders. Learning to master volatility and risk management is only a small portion of what the Swing Trade and Options Course covers. Some of our most memorable and largest profiting trades come from options alerts. We are even able to trade earnings reports when we have no idea what direction things will go! You can see the full compliment of options trades on our Options FAQ page. Options are a valuable tool for managing risk in volatile market conditions.  We find options trades in a variety of ways; news, scanners, other members/students, options sweep alerts and more. All of these swing trading strategies, including options are covered in our education courses.
