“Below are four of my rules for swing trading based on the risks of holding securities overnight or for an extended period of time:
 
Rule #1: Avoid holding positions on a stock through an earnings report.
Rule #2: Avoid holding positions through known events. (For example – the date a pharmaceutical company is scheduled to release a trial result.)
Rule #3: Research the company you are investing in and determine if the basic fundamentals support your forecast for the stock price.
Rule #4: Follow your risk to reward plan and do not over-invest in one position.”

“Knowing that stocks are moving in waves allows you to play on those waves much like a surfer. As a swing trader, you are waiting to catch and ride a wave, but like surfing, timing is very important. You will never see a surfer starting to paddle like crazy at the top of a wave to catch a ride. They wait to begin their ride as the wave is just starting to approach. Similarly, a trader needs to anticipate the next wave and get on board at the beginning of the next move in price action.”
