Forum seems slow so...I think scalping is the best strategy for newer traders trying to build up a capital base. Scalping futures for halfs to 1 pt but yes even a tic still yields a profit! I think its the best strategy even though its time consuming because at 10 rts averaging halfs you can pull out 100 bux a contract assuming you have a win ratio of 7/10 and dont take a loss bigger than 1pt. If you limit yourself to how many trades you can make it allows you to stay in the game longer and focus on accuracy. Taking trades that look most promising. Some traders say dont limit how many trades you can make. While i agree, if you are averaging 7/10 by all means keep going! But if not it helps limit your loss and build discipline. Do that 5 days a week you got 500 bills. A month you got 2g's. Limiting your exposure with limited capital is the key to the game. As accuracy improves you can size up and have longer exposure. Over time given accuracy and taking fast loses i believe any trader can turn from a small scalper to a Red Ink trader. Now i like to reference to golf a lot. My pro said when he was in college his coach said you have one ball lose it and take your ass home your done for the day. I say you have 10 trades abuse them. Shut it down ur ass is done for the day. Critiscm is welcome. fwiw this is my strategy so anyone can agree or disagree also i look only to make 50 dollars a day. Hey im trying to be net profitable. The rest is reward.
