Through my years of trading, one thing I have found is that one strategy does not fit all. We all have different risk tolerances and monetary goals. One of my goals in each E-mini Futures class I teach is to show the students a strategy and have them take it home and use it as a foundational starting point for defining their own strategy. My style is to follow the trend and enter on pullbacks. You could call this style Intraday Swing trading. This works for me because it fits my personality, patience and discipline. I understand that trading is a business dealing in probabilities and that it takes a series of trades to make a trader, not just one or two trades. However, with that said, not everybody trades like me. Of course, that is a good thing because if we all traded alike then who would take the other side of our trades?

I thought it a very good article.

My only suggestion for the article would be if he could have expanded more on why he strongly recommends the Swing trading style over the others.

I also thinks this is a good article....I am a swing trader but having said that I successfully use swing trading methods to enter and exit share purchases . It works well for me because the days of buy and hold are long gone. Typical investment time frames for me tend to have recently been about twelve months. I get to pick up the dividend too. These days with all the volatility it suits me to be able to choose or target when I'm either in the market or in cash.
