I don’t know what your idea of “scalping” is. I am not even sure what my own definition of scalping is. It depends on several factors.
- If the market is volatile – say around the open of the US markets – then the scalp trades often need more risk leeway, but in return you are rewarded with more.
- Alternatively, you play it safe with small stops. You will get stopped out more often, but in theory you should be rewarded with bigger rewards
- This scalping video is recorded 2 hours after the open. The markets had settled down. This means that the volatility has died down.
It took a while to get the points. See for yourself and send me comments, if you wish.
