Practice with a paper trading account for a period before moving cautiously into live trading.
Learn charts and use a system as a base. Most of the strategies I teach are slightly longer term. Having said that, the How to Beat Wall Street course does include some strategies that might interest you, particularly the unusual volume strategy 1 week holding period and the small cap discretion strategy.
I also plan to update the course with more swing-type trading ideas in future lectures.
I did actually see a swing trading course on Udemy, one that works with TC However, having taken the course, I cannot recommend it as I saw no evidence that the method is effective. My trend following course is more suited to medium-long term timeframes, quite simply because these are the timeframes where trend following works.
If you want to learn options, a good free resource is Dough. Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers have plenty of free tutorials on their websites for learning the software so I doubt there is any reason not to start there.

The strong bond performance was driven by significant rates compression. Many economists believe yields cannot fall much further, even though slightly negative yields are possible, as we have seen recently in several developed markets.
So it is natural to ask if trend-following strategies can maintain performance in the absence of a bond market tailwind, and indeed if they can protect against stress in bond markets of the form seen in the s, 70s and early 80s. Outline In this paper we seek to shed light on these questions by studying trend-following strategies from onwards.
Importantly, this includes the pre period, which shows a starkly different picture compared to post Over the period bonds experienced negative excess returns on average, while stock markets provided modest positive average excess returns and quite frequent drawdowns Figure 1. We start by discussing the data available to us in Section 1, followed by the definition of a straightforward momentum strategy in Section 2. Extending our analysis back to requires us to use monthly data and augment the available history of futures and forward returns with proxies based on cash returns, financed at the local short-term rate.
Liquidity filters were used to limit hypothetical trading to only stocks that would have been liquid enough to trade, at the time of the trade. Using technical analysis TA indicators we challenge Efficient Market Hypothesis EMH that says that markets are random and that is not possible to regularly outperform a passive investment strategy.
By taking suitable long or short positions, one can profit from a continuation of these trends.
Conventionally, trend rules are based on moving averages MAs of prices rather than returns, which obscures how much weight is assigned to different historical time periods. In this paper, we show how to uncover the underlying historical weighting schemes of price MAs and combinations of price MAs. This leads to surprising and useful insights about popular trend rules, for example that some trend rules have inverted information decay i.
This opens the possibility for improving the trend rule by analyzing the added value of the mean reversion part. We advocate designing trend rules in terms of returns instead of prices, as they offer more flexibility and allow for adjusting trend rules to autocorrelation patterns in returns.
Surprisingly, the literature does not provide a generally accepted and testable description of return chasing.
