Description

Swing trading is when one buys a stock at a low point and holds it for a few days or weeks as it increases in value. This course is specifically designed to help any skill level investor grow their portfolio swing trading. Many people try to blindly buy a stock at its low point and end up getting burned; in this course you will learn about a plethora of stock indicators that can help pin-point good buy and good sell ranges. The course is piled with over 15 videos to assist any person who is trying to swing trade in the stock market. I teach my viewers about six stock indicators that can be immensely helpful when swing trading. You will learn EXACTLY how I use these indicators to successfully from my portfolio. Moreover, you will learn about a few other subjects I cover about swing trading such as my platforms I use, the patterns I look for, the order types I use, and how I deal with a stock earnings report. That is not the last part either. Probably the most valuable part of my course is when I put it all together... I provide fifth-teen examples of me performing my own technical analysis on a variety of stocks. After all this, you too will have the ability to grow your own stock market portfolio.

Who this course is for:
  • Any beginner currently swing trading in the stock market.
  • Any swing trader who is interested in learning more about technical analysis.
  • Any type of stock market investor.
  • Any investor who is willing to take the steps to grow their portfolio.

+ Support and Resistance Lines
1 lecture 07:53

In this video I explain what support and resistance lines are and why they are important. I provide examples with real stocks in the market. Moreover, I reveal where good buy and good sell points are when dealing with these lines. You can start drawing your own support and resistance lines to help get a better understanding on the stock you are looking to swing trade. Remember to ALWAYS draw your support and resistance lines before taking a position in a swing trade!

+ 4 Common Swing Trade Patterns
1 lecture 06:57

In this video I show you guys the four different patterns most swing traders notice in the stock market. I also provide a little insight on the importance of patterns when swing trading. When I swing trade I only use three patterns that are safer to invest with. I explain why I use these certain patterns, and I express my opinion on the one pattern I NEVER swing trade with. I am in no way saying you can't swing trade with the fourth pattern, but it tends to offer a higher risk factor.

The Right, Safe Patterns to Swing Trade, and One Pattern I Try to Avoid
06:57
+ The Relative Strength Index (RSI) Indicator
1 lecture 06:07

The RSI can be used in numerous ways depending on the type of investor. I explain exactly what I look for on the RSI before I swing trade a stock. Always remember my rule of 50 when considering swing trading. This rule will help you become a more conservative, successful swing trader.

How I Use the RSI Indicator When Swing Trading
06:07
+ The MACD Indicator
1 lecture 06:05

Within this video, I show the two key components of the MACD indicator. These two components can help locate a good buy and good sell point on a stock. Remember to use the "circle" tip to help gain more profit on your swing trade. Also, watch for the two lines to cross over each other!

Exactly How the MACD Indicator Can Help Portray the Future of a Stock
06:05
+ The Simple Moving Average (SMA) Indicator
1 lecture 06:45

Like all my videos, I use real stocks to explain the importance of the SMA line. Just remember to always know where the SMA is located before you buy into a stock. This line can easily cause a swing trader to lose money when they are trading. Make sure to identify what the stock has done previously when approaching the SMA. Does the stock shoot straight through the SMA? Does the stock get rejected by the SMA? Does the stock bounce off the SMA?

How the SMA Line Can Act as a Support or a Resistance
06:45
+ The Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Indicator
1 lecture 06:18

This video is one the most important videos within my course. To me, the EMA line is the most critical indicator when performing your technical analysis. Not only does the line provide a full on confirmation of when to buy into the stock, but it also provides the uptrend new swing traders need to focus on. Therefor, please watch this video closely until you fully understand how to use the EMA. REMEMBER.... always wait for the stock line to break above the EMA line, and make sure the EMA line is pointing in an upwards direction.

+ Volume, Order Types, and Earnings
3 lectures 09:32

This brief video provides insight on the role of volume in the stock market. Typically, a stock is more volatile when it has low volume. That is why I tend to lean towards higher volume stocks when swing trading. In the video, I express a few key numbers regarding volume that I use.

Understanding Volume When Swing Trading
02:21

This video will give you a better understanding of a limit buy and a stop loss. I use these order types on every swing trade I make. It is important to understand how you can use them to your advantage... Set stop loses at about 2% less than the price you paid per share for your swing trade. Make sure to buy your swing at the true value you want to. If you can't get in at the right price, then move on to the next stock.

Learning About the Two Order Types I Use
03:33

Stock earnings can be a definite hit and miss. Don't become a gambler when swing trading! If you notice a stock's earnings is coming soon and you're looking to swing it... I say WAIT until after earnings. This method allows you as a swing trader to be safer.

What I Do Before a Stock's Earnings
