new to index trading. Seems like most shops advocate scalping with tight stops versus putting on a few good swing intra-day trades. Is the oddds better with scalping ( assuming you have a low cost structure, pro rate) or swing trading. Seems very difficult to constantly scalp all the random noise every day and be profitable. Also what is the success rate working at at prop shop and the time period to be profitable assuming you do get it. Appreciate any comments. Thanks.
