    Hi Charlie,
    first of all congratulations again for your videos, they’re all very usefull. I wanted to ask you something about daytrading and swingtrading. The thing is that I’m interested on purchasing one of your products, but I’m not sure about which one of them will be better.
    The question is, is it posible to swingtrade for a living? I mean, is it possible to, lets say, get a 50%-100% a year, with low leverage swingtrading? Or is it just possible to do it by daytrading? What do you think? I wonder about it, because if it’s possible to do it, why would people daytrade? Just swingtrade, and you’ll have more ‘freetime’ to do whatever you want to, or even have another job, and gain more money, if that’s the aim, I don’t know if you understand what I’m trying to ask…
    I’m a little bit confused about expectations right now. I’m currently an engineer, but not working at the moment, so I could swingtrade or even daytrade if I want to.
    Thank you very much for your support Charlie, and sorry about this long message!
    Best Regards

      Hi Paul. My apologies I’ve just checked and my previous reply to your question asked last week didn’t get posted for some reason.

      Yes it is possible to make those returns from swing trading provided there’s enough swing trades. Once a month probably wouldn’t do it!

      With regards to day trading, you’re missing an important point. Most people who trade really enjoy it! The daily challenge of reading the intraday markets and instant feedback loop you have. Because of the greater number of trades, you can hone your skills quicker. So it’s for the love of it that day traders do it outside of just the money. Remember that as a day trader, it’s a myth that you have to be sat staring at your screens all day long. You can manage your day so in fact it’s only a couple of periods of the day that you will be there to trade.

      But of course day trading is not suitable for everyone. Some people have full time jobs or simply don’t want to trade live and that’s fine too!

        Hi Charlie,

        thank you very much for your answer, that helps. Doesn’t matter about your reply, I supoused that something happend, so that’s why I reposted, I hope that doesn’t annoys you at all…

        Now I understand a little bit more about the views and ways of thinking about it. I’ve been trading several months news releases, but in a few weeks I’ll be maybe not having so much time, so I’m currently thinking about a way to replace this kind of strategy, which means in my case increase exposure in swingtrades and reduce or even eliminate daytrading, so that’s why I was asking…

        With regards to your products,(because although I’m currently swingtrading, it’s not working really well), what will you recommend? Purchasing the MBT Course or the Divergent Swing trading? I’ve been reading on the website, but I’m not sure about it. Is divergent swing trading a kind of strategy, and MBT rather a way of thinking or reading the markets in order to set an strategy? Or is it also an strategy? Sorry again about this long messages and if they seem to be like a mess.

        Thank you very much for your help

        Kind Regards

          Hi Paul,

          yes they are both swing trading but the divergent swing may be more appropriate to what you are saying to me abot what you want. MBT is a step up from that and shows how to really read the markets as well. So maybe for now look at Divergent swing.

            Hi Charlie,

            ok! So’ll be buying the Divergent Swing trading at the moment.

            Thank you very much for your help and support and your fast answer!

            Kind Regards
