Plan How You Will Trade:You need to decide how you would like to trade. Would you like to day trade? Would you like to swing trade? It all depends on your personality and on the time you have to trade. There’s no such thing as the best trading style. The best trading style is simply the one that best suits your personality. If your personality is more suitable for day trading, you probably won’t be a bright swing trader. If you prefer less stress and/or you don’t have the time to stay in front of your screen all day, you will probably be better swing trading.
