Thus the name "breakout" meaning the only constant the market has is in a breakout one price sets off a rush towards another specific price. Understanding wicks, and how they play a roll in burst trading is the "need to know", and when a person calls it "noise" then that person is ignorant to the conditions in which the market works in. How does a person get a 1:200 reward growth, no one ever expects to hit it, but when it happens one should take notice to it. The market runs in loops. #AttackTheLoop
I switched to 233 tick Heiken Ashi. Scalping higher lows long and lower highs short. Goal is 6 points a day

I trade off Renko bars which include the wick (Ninjatrader). Like you, I see the wicks as important. I believe there are MT4 indicators for Renko + wick

What do you mean by attack the loop?

Another James here....Been scalping the Treasuries for some years now, don't however have the edge I used to have but thats the same for the equities guys too.

If you have a book by Bob Volman, please burn it....it's not scalping, whether you make any money from it or not

I don't understand how you can scalp currencies effectively, especially with all the OTC and interbank rigging that goes on in those markets.

Personally I scalp futures through pure order book methods and only stay in a trade a maximum of 2-3 minutes, sometimes seconds. This works out well when you realise the potential arbitrage opportunities between the European and US equity indicies

Interesting discussion

In scalping forex I am always assuming that there's a little fluff in the price both ways.......always to catch out the fast movers by the big players.....so as part of any system I advocate allowing a little slippage / wiggle room on the price levels you see .......save s a lot of painful whip losses

Renko systems have merit at times .... and I was lucky enough to work with a seriously good renko trader earlier this year ...Jees I learnt a lot


I would suggest OVO as a software provider if you want to buy robust and reliable renko indicators .....it’s about 30 dollars I think for lifetime ownership of each renko chart

I also suggest looking at mean renko systems that incorporate wicks ....
