Here we want to outline why swing trading is an ideal form of trading for novice traders and those who lack patience.
Many FOREX traders look at long term trend following in FOREX and think that it's the most lucrative way to make money, after all the big currency trends last for weeks and months and if you can lock into and hold them, then you can make stellar profits.
The problem is:
Most traders are not mentally equipped to do this and cannot get the right mindset to trend follow. Swing trading can be just as profitable and for beginners in particular, swing trading is the better place to start.
Lets look at why.
Long Term Trend Following V Currency Swing Trading
The hardest form of trading to master not from the point of view of method - but from the point of view of adopting the right mindset is long term trend following as we have just stated.

All traders want to make big gains but capturing them is the hardest bit.
If money is important to you, (as it is to most FOREX traders) then your emotions will be present and they will play havoc with your discipline, in you in your quest to hold these trends.
When counter trend moves come, they will reduce your open equity profits (sometimes by thousands of dollars quickly) and the losses in open equity can frighten you to take profits early.
Most traders get excited and nervous when they get a profit and the bigger the profit gets; the more tempted they are to bank it before it gets away. Most FOREX traders end up banking early and getting a small or marginal profit, when they could have had a huge profit.
That's why swing trading for beginners is the best strategy to try first – it requires less discipline and is less demanding, in terms of your mindset and attitude.
