This book has a lot of great information. The information I got however, was from the written form. The Author should have had someone narrate for her. Her monotone voice made it hard to concentrate on the topic. If she got better after the first hour, I apologize for this review. One hour is all I could tolerate.

The process of swing trading has become a very popular stock trading strategy used by many traders across the market. This style of trading has proven to be very successful for many committed stocks and Forex traders. Traditionally, swing trading has been defined as a more speculative strategy, as the positions are traditionally bought and held for the traders predetermined time frame. These time frames could range anywhere from two days to a few months.
