Swing traders should conduct their own due diligence, consider other factors impacting the market, and implement appropriate risk management strategies to ensure their investments align with their individual goals and risk tolerance.
Swing traders employing a sector rotation strategy that incorporates both technical and fundamental analysis can potentially achieve attractive returns. APA's recent performance, with a gain of 27.08%, exemplifies the potential benefits of this approach.
