What are Swing Highs and Swing Lows?

Swing Highs and Swing Lows are used to predict the direction of price. A higher Swing High indicates the direction is most likely headed Up. A lower Swing Low indicates the direction is most likely headed Down. Moreover, Swing Highs and Swing Lows can also provide us clues when price is not breaking a certain level. For example, if a higher Swing High is not created, then the direction is most likely headed Down. If a lower Swing Low is not created, then the direction is most likely headed Up. Further, those that love Trading With The Trend may use Swing Highs and Swing Lows as an additional confluence to their trade.
