The Swing Trading Chart Setup.

Everybody has a swing trading chart setup, right?

Most traders spend a lot of time working on that chart setup, and for good reason. It's what you stare at before every single trade you make.

The question is, are you staring at the right things?

Cluttered Charts and Information Overload

If your swing trading chart setup is optimized you will make good trading decisions. However, what I've found working with hundreds of traders is most are not only not optimized, there is way too much information on their charts.

For instance, I recently spoke with a Swing Trade Report member who's charts had RSI, Stochastics, Bollinger Bands, 5, 8, 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, 2 volume indicators, 3 short interest numbers, VWAP, Price by volume, MACD and a few other indicators I have never heard of! One sounded more like a weather pattern than a chart indicator.

This is a classic case of information overload. This trader can not make sound decisions with this much clutter on his charts.

Remember, trading is a decision making game. As a trader you need to do everything you can to simply complex process. You get no points for cool looking charts or answering trivia questions based on your chart setup. Rather, you need to be able to look at your chart on within a blink of the eye make a money making or losing decision.

A trader must be focused only on the information she needs to make an impactful decison that leads to a profitable trade. In today's video, I show you exactly how to optimize your swing trading setup chart setup. We'll take the clutter out of your charts and create a simple chart setup that gives you access to everything you need to make profitable trades.
