How to profit from short term price swings in the stock market

How to profit from short term price swings in the stock market? One way is by predicting the most likely move in the stock or index both up or down or in some cases very little to no “significant” price move over a certain period of time. What I like to do next is look at a price level say, 60-62 and predict within a certain time frame what I think the odds are that the stock will trade higher, lower or within the price range by a certain date and time.
