Swing trading is when traders buy security shares and hold their positions for weeks up to several months. Traders look to exit their positions when their target levels have been reached or when the price nears resistance. Technically, swing trading is holding your position for more than a day. If you buy and sell securities within the same day, that’s called day trading. Most people think of large-cap stocks such as Apple $AAPL, Amazon $AMZN, and Tesla $TSLA when they think of swing trading.

Since swing trading is holding for over a day, you want to know candlesticks, patterns, and technical analysis. You’re looking for a bigger profit margin because the time frame differs from day trading. Many new traders blow up their brokerage accounts because they need to take the time to learn the basics. Day trades become swing trades, which can take a long time to recover.

We want to save you the heartache of quitting before you start swing trading. Some people don’t want to take the time necessary to learn how to trade properly. However, if you set proper expectations and trading goals, you increase the trading odds in your favor. You’ll learn how in our swing trading course.

If trading shares of a stock isn’t your thing or you need more capital in your account to trade large-cap stocks, then options are a great swing trading strategy. They also afford you the ability to profit in any market.

In trending markets, some traders like to trade calls and puts. This is a very profitable trading strategy. However, it’s risky because time isn’t on your side. Time decay eats away at contract pricing; however, you can do well if you’re good at choosing price direction. Selling credit spreads are a great way to learn swing trading. Time is on your side, and you must be less directionally biased. The rewards are less than buying calls and puts. However, the odds are much more in your favor on making winning trades.

Credit spreads make selling options less risky because you can lose money selling naked options contracts if the trade goes against you. Credit spreads are a combination of buying and selling an options contract, hence creating a credit. If the options contract expires worthless, you can keep the “credit” because you are the options seller. Even though you’re less directional biased with credit spreads, having a good idea of price direction is still important.

Debit spreads are more risky than credit spreads. However, they are less risky than trading calls and puts. Debit spreads give you a bit more protection. The trend is your friend when trading them. You need to be able to choose price direction. We will teach you in our swing trading course.

Iron condors are good for range-bound markets. If there is no trending market and it’s range bound, this is a great way to make money when the market trades sideways. Practicing trading spreads is a great way to learn. We teach you how to trade options in our swing trading courses.

Swing trading gives you more freedom than day trading because you hold longer terms. However, that can cause you to run the gambit of emotions, especially when the market is choppy. There will be days you’re up and some days you may be down. Seeing those down days can mess with your emotions. Hence, having an attainable profit goal and good technical analysis is important. 

The result of a good plan with a realistic profit target can keep you from taking a loss. However, it’s important to remember that not every trade will head in your favor. Even the best traders fail 30-40% of the time. However, don’t let that scare you. Instead, let it be an encouragement. You don’t have to be a perfect trader to learn swing trading. It’s about having a proven swing trading strategy that works for you, using the proper position sizing while limiting risk.

Swing trading is a more relaxed way for busy people to trade the markets. Especially if they can’t be glued to their computer as much as a day trader may be. Traders patiently wait for a pattern or support area to be tested, place a trade, and then set alerts for when a stock resistance or support level is reached. It’s fun and a very popular alternative or addition to day trading.

If you want to become a swing trader, you’ll want to have at least $5,000-$10,000 in an account. It’s important not to risk too much on each trade and over-leverage your portfolio.

  • Take a swing trading course
  • Take your time and study
  • Read books about swing trading
  • Swing trade large-cap stocks or options
  • Practice swing trading in a paper trading account first
  • Slowly scale your way up trading with real money

As others have described it, Bullish Bears is a community. All sorts of people and experience levels sharing their knowledge and encouraging one another. The BB teachers / contributors each have instruction multiple times per week, and the livestreams are recorded and kept for review and taking more notes later. Overall this is the best value I have seen online. This is not a signal pushing, self-profiting pump-n-dump type of group, though there are useful signals. Bullish Bears goal is to teach you how to see your own entries, make your own decisions, and be a successful trader. I have immensely enjoyed my time with them and am looking forward to more.

The Bullish Bears Community sets the Gold Standard for all online financial educational services. They have hours and hours of the best video training available anywhere. Actual videos of live online trading concepts recorded in real time by EXPERTS. The absolute highest level of knowledge and experience I have ever encountered. They have daily LIVE chat rooms where you can observe real traders and look over their shoulder as they teach you how they look for trade setups for options, stocks or futures. They share every detail of the trade setups and why they are taking a trade at any given level. You will learn how to acquire the skills to trade on your own and not be dependent on any "guru". Wouldn't you rather KNOW how to trade rather than to PAY someone who is here today and gone tomorrow (with your money) to BS you. You can look at fake photos of their Learjet, Lamborgini and Yacht OR do it the right way and actually LEARN how to do it yourself.

First of all thank you to the BB Team for the Virtual New Year's party last night going into the New Year. I would like to wish the BB Team and all the members a very Happy New Year 2022. I've been a member for the past few years and learned a lot from their mentoring and daily sessions as well as a vast treasure trove of information about trading the markets. Normally the information that is available here would be definitely in the upwards of thousands of dollars. The membership more than pays for itself. They stand by their motto "Pay it forward". I've upgraded my annual membership to their Lifetime membership because of the value it provides and they keep it more interesting. All the best to the BB team.

I joined the Bullish Bears in May 2021 because someone shared a YouTube video of a trading technique I was interested in learning since I was struggling learning it from somewhere else. Once I joined the community, there were even more learning opportunities from the video library, the live streaming, the BB Team along with the BB community. Whether your are a novice or experienced trader, there is a place for you at the Bullish Bears.

This is truly a team of people dedicated to helping their members understand and apply that level of understanding in the market. They are extremely interactive with their members. They have personally taken time to explain concepts to me over and over again until I actually understood the material. What I enjoy most; you are not learning just one system, you are learning systems and concepts to build your own way of thinking and trading! I'm truly grateful to Bullish Bears.
