sooo. i got a scottrade account in order to position trade/invest in growth stocks. i end up doing a quick scalp and was freaking hooked! well i thought it was easy, because of the first couple successful scalps.. i learned the hardway that i didn't have a clue as to what i was doin. now im down 6k =] respectively. so i stopped my losses by opening up a virtual account with scottrade and have been trading that for the past week. i was down, now i feel like im getting a hang of spotting break outs and im actually up 2 thousands after recouping my 4k virtual loss. well anyways, i can stop thinking about trading. so im looking up everything i can, which led me here and what i'm trying to figure out right now is... when using bollinger bands and different indicators on a 1 minute chart. what variables do i need to change? i assume i need to decrease the time period but i dont know what to change it to, etc... any help?
