will write some ideas I have about scalping here, entries, and things would like to keep a record, have some scalpers chime in, overall. Some background: I am a consistent swing trader who enters using scalp entries, As a swing trader, I get to trade once or twice every 2 days. So I have experience in scalping , but still a large NEWBIE SCALPER! The reason: I can capture 10-15 cents easily with a 2 cent stop. but 25-50 cents 1% is hard. The frequency: I will now be focusing on SCALPING 10 times a day. Around once per hour, The stock: my focus will be on AAPL / $25+ per stocks. I will be scalping purely candle sticks and following futures. The stop/entry: Stop 2-3 cents , target: 10 cents - 25 cents. I hope this journal ends on good terms because I would very much like to be the next SEZENVE, RED_INK, STEVE TARVARDKE , NYSE_KILLER , MILLENINUMMAN , MR.NBBO If they can be making $50,000 a month + , I would like that as well. I will be scalping with a 300 shares when starting out slowly up to 1000- 1500 shares on AAPL I will be using a tick chart, just like how I use to trade futures. -------------- If you can't beat them, join them! When I finish this journal, I hope to be averaging at least $1k - 2k a day CONSISTENTLY.
