Scalping Tutorial ? Short-Term Trading Explained ? Scalping Strategy for Beginners ? Tips

SCALPING or SCALPTRADING is very short-term trading on the stock exchange, often just seconds or minutes

It is important to “take along” even the smallest price movements, long or short, in rising or falling markets.

Scalping is the supreme discipline, as it is important to react at lightning speed and to pocket even the smallest profits and to keep possible losses as small as possible. Scalpers often trade five, ten or 50 times in a single day and are only satisfied with a profit of 5 or 25 euros per trade.
