As I haven’t really followed a swing-trading strategy recently, you forget little rules. One very important little rule is that when trading individual stocks, try and trade then in the same direction as the market.

Apart from specific events, like earnings, the individual names will generally follow the overall market in day-to-day fluctuations.

Remembering that little rule would have modified both swing-trade positions that I have on currently.
