Hello traders, I've just started scalping index futures for a living with a proprietary trading firm. Over the next two years, I'll be posting my progress and would love to get different perspectives from other experienced traders. Goal: On a per contract basis, my daily target is to make 20 ticks with a maximum down limit of 15 ticks. Sticking point: I've been scalping the ES in the Asian session for 2 weeks now. And one of the problems I realized is that my risk:reward ratio is not very good. I'm always capturing 1 tick move, and giving it all back when the market moves against me by 2-3 ticks. Does any of you face this problem when you're scalping? I'd love to hear from fellow scalpers who have went through the stage that I'm going through now. Looking forward to sharing my thoughts and learning from everyone on the forum.
