In the age of algorithmic trading and HFTs, you’d be forgiven for thinking that scalping the market has become impossible. On the contrary, the volatility in today’s markets give us plenty of opportunity for intraday scalp trades. Scalping IS becoming a lost art though. Not so much because the information isn’t out there. More because of the amount of misinformation on scalping. Finding good information on scalping has become like finding a needle in a haystack.
Partly, this is because Scalping is a term that has become overused in the trading world. So before we have any discussion on how to make money scalping, we really need to re-define the term.
Moving from a 5 minute chart to a 1 minute chart doesn’t make you a scalper. It isn’t about timeframes, it’s about perspective. The perspective of a scalper is that of somebody trading in the moment. Not somebody trading history. It’s not really ‘directional’ trading either. Not trading where you think the market is heading. It’s trading where the market is right now. Below you will see our “Getting started with Scalping” Video to help with your scalping strategy.
