Master Swing Trading Full-Time Or With A Job
In episode 146 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview day & swing trader Paul Singh from San Diego. We dive specifically into how to master swing trading full-time or doing it while having a full-time job.
To know more about Paul and his transition to swing trading full-time, listen to this prior episode of the podcast:
In today’s podcast, we are going a bit more into his swing trading practices. In addition to mastering swing trading, Paul decided to jump into day trading at some point after going full-time to spend as many activities while running and being responsible for swing trading at Bulls on Wall Street.
He has been able to help a lot of traders understand swing trading and do things right which means he’s doing the research beforehand, getting into the market with the proper mindset and executing properly, which is exactly what he shares about in this interview.
