This is what scalping looks like. 12 or 13 trades in 40 min. Here is a link to some scalping that I did today from 9:50- 10:30(german equity market close) today in the Dax . The video is 7 minutes long but it was sped up and is actually 40 minutes of trading. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtJ2BZ2vCm0 The video quality and demensions are poor( I didn't realize youtube would distort the image) , I will try to fix that and post a whole day next week. The above link was all the trading I did today.
