Hi, thank you for your question! 

Basic indicators which swing traders are looking for are swing lows and swing highs, which actually show how high and the low stock went in the past. Once these are marked on the chart, the swing trading gets much easier. 

In order to identify these levels, traders use the following indicators:

Moving averages (MAs) - which take all the data in the specific time frame and come up with the number which represents the average over a set time period.
Volume - shows the amount that is traded
Relative strength index (RSI) - indicates if a single stock is being overbought or oversold recently, and according to this indicates if a swing is nearby.
The Stochastic oscillator - the stochastic oscillator is another form of momentum indicator, working similarly to the RSI. It compares the closing price of a market to the range of its prices over a given period.
