Swing trading is a type of short-term trading that is based on technical analysis of price charts. The key principle of swing trading is to look for price “swings” or “legs” within a larger trend. These swings provide opportunities to enter and exit trades at favorable prices.
There are a number of different technical indicators used to identify potential swing trading opportunities. Understanding indicators is one of the foundational components of learning to swing trade.
Some of the most popular swing trading indicators include:
Moving Averages: Moving averages are a swing trading indicator that is used to smooth out price action and help identify the direction of the underlying trend. When prices are above the moving average, it is generally indicative of an uptrend. Conversely, when prices are below the moving average, it is generally indicative of a downtrend.
Bollinger Bands: Bollinger Bands are a technical indicator that consists of an upper and lower band. The upper band is typically two standard deviations above the 20-period moving average, while the lower band is typically two standard deviations below the 20-period moving average. Bollinger Bands can be used by swing traders to identify overbought and oversold conditions and potential reversals.
Relative Strength Index (RSI): The Relative Strength Index is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI can be used to identify potential reversals in price. It helps swing traders identify when stocks are overbought or oversold.
MACD: The MACD is another swing trading indicator consisting of a fast and slow line. The fast line is typically the 12-period EMA, while the slow line is typically the 26-period EMA. The MACD is another type of momentum oscillator that identifies potential reversals in price.
These are just a few of the technical indicators that can be used for swing trading. Seasoned traders often use one or more of these indicators as part of their trading strategies.
Learning How to Use Swing Trading Indicators
We teach each of these swing trading indicators in our swing trading course. For each indicator, we explain when exactly you would make an entry according to the rules of the indicator, as well as when you could make an exit.
That makes it very easy to manage your trades. Using indicators in that way makes swing trading more formulaic. Rather than shooting from the hip with your trades, you simply follow the rules of the indicator and manage your trades that way. Those are the precise rules we teach in our course.
The best way to find out which indicators work best for you is to experiment with different combinations and see what works best for your trading style.
Finding Swing Trade Opportunities Using Indicators
Learning about swing trading indicators is the first step to making money swing trading.
The next step is finding stocks or options that meet the criteria of those swing trading indicators.
And that’s one of the benefits of our swing trading discord chat room. That’s where all our members get together to talk about trades.
You’ll find out in real time when someone in the group spots a stock where the swing trade indicator is flashing a buy signal. Getting those sorts of trade alerts can have a big impact on your ability to make profit in the stock market.

Using the Moving Average Indicator to Make Swing Trades
There are a few different ways that you can use moving averages in your trading. One way is to use them as a way to identify the overall trend. If the moving averages are pointing upwards, then this is generally indicative of an uptrend.
That means you can try to find opportunities to get into the stock based on the direction of the moving average.
Another way that you can use the moving average indicators is by using them as support and resistance levels. For example, if the price is bouncing off of the 20-period moving average, then this could be seen as a potential support level. Similarly, if the price is struggling to break above the 200-period moving average, then this could be seen as a potential resistance level.
If this sounds foreign to you, don’t worry. These are things we teach in great detail in our course and our community. And in the chat room, we encourage people to ask any questions they have, whether about swing trading indicators or anything else.
Moving averages are a versatile indicator that can be used in a number of different ways by swing traders. The best way to use them will depend on your own personal trading style and strategy. However, they can be a valuable addition to any trader’s toolkit and can help you make better-informed trading decisions.
Just might have my first thousand dollar week! Big thanks to everyone!
Started trading 1 month ago as of today. I think I’m doing pretty well so far. Thank you to everyone in this discord for all the help and guidance!
Thank you bro! This stock is only going up guys. I grabbed it when it was rock bottom and contracts were $10 each. Now they’re worth around $95 each. Still going up.
I look at the current trend and ask this group chat for their opinion. I use all of it to make my decision on what I’ll do the next morning. So far it’s worked.
Thank you so much. I am learning new things from this community everyday.
This chat has helped me tremendously learning about graphs and more. Thank you.
