What makes a good Swing Trader? — Patience

$LYFT breaking out today

One month, that’s how long ago I posted about $LYFT being at a good price. In that time we had some minor breakouts that never took hold and quickly dropped back down. Most would be deterred and consider this pick a failure, but this isn’t day trading, it’s swing trading. Trades can last weeks or even months depending on how that particular stock moves — some make very sharp quick moves like a jackrabbit (I try to avoid these erratic stocks) and other are slow and steady like the turtle (these are the ones I prefer).

The key thing to remember is that if you believe in the setup and the data is there, these pullbacks are the perfect opportunity to add to your position at a great price. As long as the company fundamentals haven’t changed drastically and everything you originally liked about the stock remains true, then the stock you liked at say $10, you should LOVE at $8.
