Swing Trading using the 4-hour chart 1-3: 3 Manuscripts

Part 1: Introduction to Swing Trading

Swing trading is too fast for investors and too slow for day traders. It takes place on a timeframe in which you will find very few professionals traders.

Swing traders usually use 4-hour charts. This period falls exactly between that of the investor and the day trader. As a swing trader, you are prone to sit on the fence, and that's good, because here you are almost alone.

This book describes the swing trading method of the Heikin Ashi Trader. It is ideal for individual investors who do not want to sit all day in front of the computer screen.

Part 3: Where Do I Put My Stop?

In the third part of the series on "Swing Trading using the 4-hour chart“, the Heikin Ashi Trader treats the question on where the stop should be. Once a trader stops introducing stops, he will discover that his hit rate will worsen. However, by doing this he gains full control of the trade management. Stops are therefore not unavoidable, but remain an integral part of a trading system that is profit-oriented.
