    Part 1: Introduction to Swing Trading
     
    Swing trading is too fast for investors and too slow for day traders. It takes place on a timeframe in which you will find very few professionals traders.
     
    Swing traders usually use 4-hour charts. This period falls exactly between that of the investor and the day trader. As a swing trader, you are prone to sit on the fence, and that's good, because here you are almost alone.
     
    This eBook describes the swing trading method of the HeikinAshi Trader. It is ideal for individual investors who do not want to sit all day in front of the computer screen.

    How to Develop a Profitable Trading Strategy
     
    Why You Should Do the Opposite of What the Majority of Traders are Trying to Do
     
    Traders become active in the stock market for no other reason than to collect points, ticks and pips. As much as possible and as fast as possible. Everything else is pastime and useless analysis. Traders therefore need a method, a system that does exactly that: accumulating small profits permanently, which eventually adds up to a considerable plus in the account.
     
    For this to happen, the author takes the classic recommendation "cut your losses and let your profits run" under the magnifying glass. In this book, he does the opposite of this well-meaning advice: keep profits as small as possible and choose losses as great as possible.
     
    In the second part of the book, he is investigating a strategy that works with this premise. And the historical backtesting gives him right. When traders do the opposite of what the crowd is trying to do, they finally have success!

    Scalping is Fun!
     
    Part 3: How do I rate my Trading Results?
     
    Scalping is the fastest way to make money in the stock market. There is hardly a more effective method for increasing a trader’s capital. The Heikin Ashi Trader explains why this is so in this four-part series about scalping.
     
    In this third book, the Heikin Ashi Trader answers the question of how the trading results of a scalper are analyzed and correctly evaluated. Based on the weekly results of a single trader, he examines what factors matter to having long-term success in the stock market. The analysis of the trading journal for 12 weeks allows an inside look at the learning curve of a budding professional.
     
    This highly effective scalping strategy applies to short time frames, such as the 1-minute chart, as well as longer periods. You can trade, using this universal method, in equity indices and in the currency markets. Typical instruments are futures, foreign exchange, and CFDs.
