Salute, Scaling is a great survival strategy and can significantly cut loses( and some profit cutting too). Its make sense in a swing trade situation, but I was wondering if it makes sense in rapid day trading. If I am in the trade for 5-15 minutes, expecting and 1-3% gain is scaling a good strategy or should a tight stop be used without the extras. It sounds like scaling in a 5-15 min trade would not be very effective. Could someone please let me know if that reasoning is flawed and why? P.S. Yes I am new. Please don't flame.
