    Try it and see what happens. Definitely not beginner strategy.
     
  5. Hmmm... Let' see.

    You go long 1 ES with a face value of $75,000*, and you sell it at $75,012.50, then deduct commissions.

    Yup, sounds like a plan.


    *SPX = 1500
     
  6. I scalp 1/4 200 times a day. Sorry it isnt an 1/8, Id scalp 500 times.

    Go for it
     
  7. do you really scalp the ES for 1/4 point many times per day?...seriously and not joking...very interesting!
     
  8. Keep in mind I didnt say it was profitable.

    I have ADD and it keeps me from falling asleep
     
  9. You do this, as opposed to having an "Out of Market" Experience?? LOL
