Hi

I am interested in discussing scalping strategies with anyone active in these markets. There seems to be some good opportunities to take 1 or 2 ticks going with momentum whilst limiting losers to a low % AND max 2 ticks. It seems getting low commissions and keeping costs down is vital. I am running TT for $650 pm the RT costs dont fall below $2 until you have a monthly volume of 10000+. I have been using some of the techniques from the no BS day trading book (not affiliated in any way).

Anyone scalping in these markets?

I don't know if my trade style could be called ''scalping".
Usually I hold several minutes for 5-15 ticks profits. Does it count?

I started trading ES, every tick is 0.25 and worth $12.5. I use Interactive Brokers whose commission is $2.01. So I will gain 12.5-2*2.01=$8.48 if I grasp 1 tick.
