For sure, if you have to trade part-time, it would be better to use swing/long-term trading strategies, because in such case you will have enough time to conduct proper preparation, analyse market situation and develop a detailed trading plan. At the same time, if the trader tryies to trade actively during the day having only a few free hours, he would lose his money n most of the cases, because he would compete directly with full-time daytraders having better experience and enough time to prepare for the trading session. That is why swing trading systems are preferable for trades having their another main job, because they would be able search for trading ideas and turn them into profitable trades without time limits. Another point is that stops used in swing trading are usually wider, so there is no need to watch the charts for the whole day - it would be enough to set alerts on important levels and then use mobile app to check them from time to time. Sometimes it is possible even to execute trades from pre-defined levels using mobile platform, but it would be better to avoid such situations due to the potential mistakes that may take place.
