Mr Rishikesh Singh will also cover some interesting real-life examples to show how efficiently trades can be made by following trends in the way he does. He will also discuss setting stop losses while trading through his zigzag trading style. A trading strategy known as "zigzag trading" aims to spot and profit from brief price reversals or "swings" that occur within a larger trend. The price movement's appearance on a price chart as a zigzag pattern between highs and lows is where the term "zigzag" originates. When using the zigzag trading strategy, traders look for swing highs and swing lows in the price action and place trades based on the anticipated trend reversal. To find these swing points, traders who employ this strategy frequently use technical analysis tools like trend lines, support and resistance levels, and oscillators.
He will also discuss the importance of risk management and the various types of risks we can face as investors.
