Types of trading

What are the diffrerent types of trading styles apart from the ones mentioned below?

Trend trading-

momentum trading-

swing trading

A trend is nothing but the general direction of the price of an asset or market in general.
A trend can apply to equities, bonds, commodities and any other market which is characterized by a long-term movement in price or volume.

  • Trend trading is one of the most effective and easy to use methods for making money in the market. Trend trading success depends on identifying and catching the trend after it has started and getting out of the trend as soon as possible after the trend reverses.
  • Trend Trading involves taking a position in the markets with a view of holding that position for weeks to months for larger than normal gains. Trend traders or investors generally trade the long term or secular trends and are not concerned with the day to day market volatility.

Swing Trading takes advantage of brief price swings in strongly trending stocks to ride the momentum in the direction of the trend.

  • Swing trading combines the best of two worlds -- the slower pace of investing and the increased potential gains of day trading.

  • Swing traders hold stocks for days or weeks playing the general upward or downward trends.

  • Swing Trading is not high-speed day trading. Some people call it momentum investing, because you only hold positions that are making major moves.

  • By rolling your money over rapidly through short term gains you can quickly build up your equity.

Momentum trading is more than identifying which way a stock is trending; it is a trading strategy that focuses on stocks or other trading instruments that are showing a strong move in a particular direction, usually on high volume, within a specified time period.

The core strategy of momentum investing is to buy stocks that have been trending in one particular direction, frequently taking the form of buying a new high. Momentum investors aim to capture the waves of enthusiasm that can send stocks blasting higher for extended periods of time.
