Dude, common! Go tell that to a newbie. The reason I've had so many arguments with swing traders in other forums is because they don't know how to scalp. It's not the other way around. I know exactly what swing trading entails. It requires working under the false pretext that one is not taking much risk doing so. The reality is that your market exposure risk is HUGE because you have open positions almost constantly or for very long periods of time. This false sense of security is what makes swing traders, IMHO, the real gamblers in the market. That's why I only fund scalpers and active day traders. I've rejected so many swing traders that want funding that is not even funny. I always get criticized by frustrated swing traders because of this, but I don't care. The more swing traders, the better for me - because there's less competition for scalpers. This is obvious. That's why I gave you the other figure without compounding. It just shows that even the lower end of the range is too high. No swing trader is going to earn a 600% return a month consistently. Is it impossible? No; but it's highly improbable. Good luck with your scalping, osorico.
