Preferred market analysis

Trading style

Desmond primarily focuses on swing trades as he finds the shorter time frames can get too choppy. He believes in designing the trading plan, executing the trading plan and letting it unfold with minimum intervention.

Always remember you’re here to make money. Don’t trade for the sake of trading, instead, trade for the sake of making money.
