Swing Trading Model – Futures
The Solas Swing Trading Model is an end of day trading strategy which delivers high probability trade signals both long & short within a defined trend across the main Equities, Indices & Etf’s.
The trading strategy behind the Solas Swing Trading Model uses a well recognised trade scenario called ’mean reversion’ where it identifies statistically significant overbought & oversold conditions. The trading model enters the markets in the direction of the dominant trend following a pullback in price action. The model exits trades into momentum as price reverts back to the mean price level in the direction of the trend.
The trades are short term in nature, with typical hold periods of c.3-6 days and can be traded with as little as 30 minutes of trading time per day.
