My perspective of the markets can be summarized as go long when you can until it breaks (and I do believe there is a break on the horizon but it doesn’t do you any good to wait around for corrections).
Understanding what the simple indicators are for the entry and exit in your trading position in a swing trade is critical – proper entries and exits can not only increase your win rate but also significantly impact your personal investment portfolio return on investment, thus a critical discipline to at least become moderately familiar. The buy and hold concept has served investors moderately well for some time, but even so, they could have do so much better with very little time invested.

The secret to Swing Trading successfully is understanding and executing Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward PTPTRR
A quick word about this discipline before you review the charts below. If you understand the disciplines involved in swing trading, more specifically PTPTRR then good for you! If you do not, I admonish you to learn the discipline before swing trading. You can of course search online the specifics of the discipline or ask us to assist. Either way, a few hours of focused / directed study will go a long way to ensuring that risk reward is always on your side.
The charts below can be used to achieve a very hassle free return on investment as long as you understand the above principles to trading. This will bring your trading in to a predictable process driven realm. Trust us, it lowers stress and provides investing enjoyment instead of it being a negative learning experience.
In short “Price” is simply the price action and target buy or exit of each trade. The “Trigger” is when the indicators have lined up and price has moved in the direction of and confirmed an entry. “Power” is buying or selling action. And a defined “Risk Reward” is knowing in advance what your plan is and it is a scientific process, not random.
