With swing traders looking to capitalise on price movements within days to weeks, identifying midterm trends shielded with thorough risk management tools is key. Here we look at five platform features on SaxoTraderGO that can give your swing trading the edge you’re looking for.
Introduction to swing trading
Swing traders aim to profit from market movements over a period of a couple of days to several weeks. They predominantly use technical analysis to identify trading opportunities but will also draw upon fundamental analysis to support their research.
Compared to day traders, swing traders face other types of risks, including overnight and weekend market risk. To mitigate this, swing traders often depend on intuitive risk-management tools, such as advanced stop-loss functions.
