What is Swing Trading? 

Swing Trading nifty chart

Swing Trading is a speculative Trading strategy in financial markets where a tradable asset is held for between one and several days in an effort to profit from price changes or 'swings'. A swing trading position is typically held longer than a day trading position, but shorter than buy and hold investment strategies that can be held for months or years. Profits can be sought by either buying an asset or Short Selling. Momentum signals (e.g., 52-week high/low) have been shown to be used by financial analysts in their buy and sell recommendations that can be applied in swing trading.

Lot Size And Earning details - Swing Trading

One lot of Nifty contract contains 75 units thus technically you earn Rs.75 if the index moves up by 1 point. Therefore, 10 points gives you Rs.750 (Rs.75*10) profit.

Now let’s discuss about the return on investment. We know that the overnight SPAN margin for one lot of Nifty is approx. Rs.80,000 (according to the current scenario).

So if you invest with Rs.80,000 and you earn a profit of Rs.750/- (10 points on Nifty) then the ROI = 750/80000 = 0.9375%

However, if you do Intraday trading then the broker provides you a leverage to reduce the capital value.

Triangle patterns are aptly named because the upper and lower trendlines ultimately meet at the apex on the right side, forming a corner. Connecting the start of the upper trendline to the beginning of the lower trendline completes the other two corners to create the triangle. The upper trendline is formed by connecting the highs, while the lower trendline is formed by connecting the lows. 

Cup and Handle pattern

A cup and handle price pattern on a security's price chart is a technical indicator that resembles a cup with a handle, where the cup is in the shape of a "u" and the handle has a slight downward drift. The cup and handle is considered a bullish signal, with the right-hand side of the pattern typically experiencing lower trading volume.

Reversal pattern
