Typically, you would be operating between the 1-hour and the Daily timeframe.
As a swing trader, you buy near the lows of the range exit before the price hits resistance if the market is ranging.
Similarly, if the market is trending, you just have to capture that one wave.
It’s less stressful and you don't need much screen time because you are trading off the higher time frames.
But the downside to it is that swing trading has a less frequency of trades.
Which means, you won't make money on most months.
If you're good, you can make money in most quarters.
Another downside is that you will not be able to ride trends because as a swing trader, you're just capturing one move in the market.
