Is scalping trading profitable for you as a beginner forex trader? A lot of people start out in forex finding the best scalping trading strategy because it is really exciting to scalp the markets.

Although i do come across scalpers once in a while who can do scalping for a living, but i seldom see successful traders who scalp.

Instead, a lot of professional traders i know trade long term. However, at the end of the day, whether is scalping profitable for you or not depends on your trading personality.

If your trading personality is not that of a scalper, then the best scalping strategy in the world will not even help you succeed. You will fail big time if you are into scalping trading just for the thrill of it.

Hey Karen I don’t agree. If I can scalp $50 20,000 I’ll be at 1million dollars. Scalping is the only option that can get me there, being so I paper trade 3 pairs Gold, USOIL, and BTC. These three will get me where I need to be and that’s the 1%.

The OnlyJimbat says:

I feel like scalping is hard as brokers now has too many tools to take out your trade presuming you use a stop loss. I've gained profit doing scalping but in a single trade i lost almost 80% of my whole profit. Then I just fuck this, I'm not gonna use this broker and stop scalping. It is risky. But the thing is about long term trades, you need higher capital. That's quite hard to get for students. Correct me if I'm wrong I'm still new too

Peter Eastman says:

You have said a lot more than you think.
Thank you!

Howard Hill says:

Also, some traders prefer not to have overnite risk, so they trade intraday.

Scalping is for people who actually have a true skill swing trading is for people who failed at scalping

Neil_AC says:

With scalping you can catch a longer term move with a much larger position (due to smaller SL size – sometimes 10 pips). I trade off M15 or M5 and I sometimes get crazy RR runners. Trading Daily or Weekly with a 200 pip stop loss means you need a 400 pip target minimum. For me this is far less productive and quite tiresome.

Michal Nechme says:

Scalping is not suitable for beginners as it requires lots of effort and time in front of the screen. Its the most mentally taxing method.

Hi Karen . Can you please tell us, retail traders, what is the most doable and achievable way to get funded ? Do you have any experience you can tell us about getting funding? Because i believe lack of capital is one of the biggest problem small retail traders have. Thank you
