ONLY for Scalpers

Given the animosity towards scalping in this forum I propose that scalpers list some info to show the degree of their success.

Inform the rest of the forum of:
- Instruments traded (stocks/futures/currency)
- Trades per day (RT)
- Average time per position
- Average points earned
- Average Success rate
- Approx capital
- Average return per day/month/year
- Years of experience using this daytrading strategy
- % of commission & spread paid in relation to revenues


Please refrain from posting if you are not a scalper and willing to contribute to this questionnaire. If you still have the urge to comment, start a new thread linking it to this one

Many of the traders on this board are scalping, if you look through the threads you will find some very profitable scalpers.

Yes, I scalp Forex. Eur/Usd.

Don't enjoy long trades. Prefer to wait long until the time is right.

Hi
I use the following scalping method on Intertrader in sterling based in the UK on
a spread betting account
The pip difference is 1/3 pips on the following that i trade
AM EURUSD,GBP/USD DAX
PM EUR/USD GBP/USD DOW JONES
I look to make 40 pips a day and only trade when markets are volatile which is
almost every day.
Trades are held from 1 min to 30 minutes
I monitor all trades and sell 70% of trade once target reached i use my own target
for remaining 30% which is maximum of 20 pips and minimum of 10 pips unless
closed at a loss.
About 80% achieve minimum target of 5 pips.
I have used this system for 2 months after having traded a number of methods during last 10 years.
MACD 5 8 9
PSAR 0.10 0.11
i USE 5 MIN CHARTS AND LOOK AT 1 AND 15 MINUTE FOR CONFIRMATION
I only enter trade when macd and psar are aligned
Feel free to trail this yourself or if FORUM want to check it out will welcome it.
Good luck
