Scalp Trading Methods

Scalping is one of the most popular day trading strategies. It involves selling a security almost immediately after a profitable return is possible. Day traders utilizing this strategy execute the buy and sell of a trade in minutes or even seconds.

Pros of Scalp Trading

  • Using this strategy, you are looking for minimal data from the market.
  • With stop losses being very tight, scalping can sometimes curb large losses. 

Cons of Scalp Trading

  • Requires a large amount of focus (at times a full day’s), which can make the trading day a tense and anxious situation.  

Since gains are not always large ones, traders can become restless, leading to ill-informed risks.
