Scalping – Making It Work For You

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.

Jigsaw Trading
After suffering a 30% drawdown at the hands of “independent financial advisors”, Peter started trading in the early 2000’s, figuring there was no point in paying people to lose money for him. By 2005, Peter was day trading NASDAQ stocks and later discovered the value order flow. He struggled with the way order flow data was presented so designed tools that organized Order Flow information more rationally and Jigsaw Trading was born. Those tools are now the #1 ranked software on Investimonials.com.
Today Peter spends his time trading and helping other traders through the Jigsaw community, articles and free one on one sessions.
