So you want to be a scalper. Is that a good idea, and can we help?

Hey traders, Andrew Mitchem here at the Forex Trading Coach with video and podcast number 401.

Is scalping a good idea or not?

Now you want to be a scalper. Is that a good idea? Well, it depends on what type of person you are, and if you’d like looking at your charts either at a certain time each day, when you know, there’s likely to be more price activity such as the European session, or maybe the US session. But also you need to be the sort of person that’s willing to do that regularly. And you’ve got to be the sort of person that’s willing to be a little bit more active on your charts. So is it a good idea? Well, it depends on you as a person, but it also depends on your strategy as in, does it work?

Can we help you?

And the other question is, can we help? Well, yes, absolutely we can help, because my strategy which I’ve been trading now for the last 14 years, works on all currency pairs and all timeframe charts.

Some real trade examples

Now to give you a perfect couple of examples, just yesterday, I held my client’s weekly live two hour trading room webinar. And on that webinar, we actually took two short timeframe charts. We took a trade on the 30 minute chart on the Australian Canadian dollar, and we took a trade on the Aussie Yen on the 15 minute chart. So both kind of scalping trades. They may not be like one minute charts or five minute charts, which are real scalping, but they are very short timeframe being a 15 and 30 minute chart. So pretty much what you would classify as scalping. And they were both profitable trades. We took them live, on the session, in front of my clients.

The first one, the Aussie Canadian, the 30 minute chart trade, just happened to have a 10 bit stop loss, had an 18 pip profit target. Therefore it made a 1.8 to one reward to risk. Risk half of 1% of your account on that trade. Make a 0.9% almost a 1% gain. It did that in two hours. The other trade that we took was on the 15 minute timeframe on the Aussie Yen. That had a 13 pip stop loss, a 28 pip profit target. And that made a 2.1 to one reward to risk or 1.05% gain. Two trades together, half percent risk on each.

So therefore total of only 1% of my account with risk on those two trades yet I made a positive plus 1.95% account gain. So almost a 2% gain just on two trades, live in front of my clients, for everybody to take, everybody to see. And 2% from one night, two trades took me what, five minutes total, just look through all the charts, see them, take them. 2% account gain. Not bad is it? Especially when you consider that’s way more than the bank’s going to pay me in 12 months.

You need a good strategy to scalp

So can we help you? Absolutely. Certainly we can because the strategy, as I’ve mentioned works across all timeframe charts. You still need to have everything setting up in your favour. The probability, what we’re looking for in terms of candle patterns, bounces round numbers, divergence, all those types of things that we teach, we trade and we look for. And then you have to of course have the strategy and that knowledge to be able to take that trade, all those trades at the exact right time.

So can we help? Absolutely. We also have on our forum site, a section dedicated to one hour charts and another section dedicated to 30 minute charts and lower. So we have people who like to scalp and like to trade those shorter timeframe charts with a dedicated section as well. So is it a good thing to do? Well, that’s for you to decide on what suits you. Can we help? Absolutely. Because we can trade those. We do from time to time, trade those shorter timeframe charts, especially on our live webinars and people posting on our forum site and it works.

So as you can see from those two trades, a 1.95% account gain on two, very easy to take trades, taken live, just last night, on my live webinar, with clients, 2% gain. What more do you want really? It can be done. It’s very straightforward to be done once you know what you’re doing.
