Heading into the week of Oct. 3, market conditions are poor. I’m not buying into new swing trades until conditions improve. I’m not scanning for stocks this week, and even considering trades is probably at least a week away (or more).
Swing Trading Stock Market Outlook For The Week Of Sept. 26
Market conditions are currently poor. All the indices had a rough week. From a price action perspective, all the indices are in short-term downtrends amid a longer-term downtrend.
What Your Charts Aren’t Telling You And How It Affects Backtesting And Strategy Performance

Forex Strategies Guide for Day and Swing Traders 2.0
Cory Mitchell

My mission in writing this forex strategies guide is to provide you with enough strategies and trading information that it’s the only forex strategies eBook you’ll need to get started and get profitable:
--You've likely looked up strategies or read strategy books before…and it didn't help your trading! Am I right? That’s because you’re missing one of the keys, and books and websites rarely, if ever, discuss it. It’s a step-by-step approach for how to actually implement the strategies and train your mind to utilize them effectively. Utilize and stick with this 5-step method and success is an inevitability, not just a possibility. Without this missing key you could read strategy book after strategy book and still never be profitable.
