    Thinking about starting to scalp during the day while waiting for my swing positions to play out. I have a set risk management system for my swing trades but don't think it would work well when scalping.

    For those of you who scalp, what do you account for when setting limits/stops? I'm not looking to trade huge volume just a couple hundred shares here and there.

    you don't sound like a very serious trader to me, but i would stick with swing trading if i were you, there are huge profits to be made there... if your risk management strategy really works well of course
