100% winning scalps

I decided to do some scalping this week and I thought that I would keep a record of it here.

I will be using the 5 minute time frame on the EUR-USD.
Basically my goal is to make 5+ pips each trade risking an equal number of pips as the stop loss.
This will give me a 1:1 profit to loss. As in to win at the end of the week I will need to have at least 51% winners.

I will post the trade right after I take it with the entry and the target and the stop loss.

If I have time I will put up a chart after I post the trade.
I will be looking for long tails with a nice amount of room to the left as the main signal to enter the trade.
If the trade goes in my direction quite well I may stay in it for more than the original target.
Yes I know that that will change the 51% winners aspect.

I will use some other signals as entries but will explain them as I use them.

Oh and just so you know the name of the thread is simply a goal!!

Dude, your eyes must be watering now if you're in for any size, unless you hit the 5 key once too often.

You are correct that should all be at the 1.58 level.
