Who Should Swing Trade?

 

 

Speculative trading of any type carries financial risk of loss of funds therefore only discretionary funds that an individual can afford to lose should be used. Traders with larger accounts will usually have more success with swing trading than those with smaller accounts since small accounts will tend to be consumed with inevitable losses as well as commission costs over time. The table below shows how commissions can be a substantial cost for a trading account starting with less capital. Traders also must pay careful attention to their brokers commission per trade as some price trades higher at a lower volume or number of trades per month.
