Swing-Trading Watch List: SPWR, PXD, NBL, FMER, HLX

Trading is all about managing risk, and here are 5 swing-trade set-ups

   

I booked gains in CLR Tuesday at $116.88 for a 4% gain. I probably could have been more patient with it into the close, but at the end of the day, I make it a habit not to worry about leaving a percentage or two on the table. I judge whether I should continue to hold a stock or not based on risk.

If the risk is beyond my level of tolerance, I will get out of the trade and CLR clearly became that for me today.

Remember, trading has little to do with being a good stock picker and everything to do with managing risk – even at the expense of not always squeezing every cent out of a trade.
