The past few days have been tough for me, and for many of my Scalping fellows. I'm not finding many opportunities to make money, 3 or 4 cents per trade is the maximum profit I've been able to grab. Many people say that a scalper does well with a 3 cent profit, but make your numbers guys, after coms and SEC fees you are not leaving much in your pocket. Your broker is getting fatter while you are in food stamps. Scalpers by definition are weak hands, we easily get shaken, but be patient with your winners, let them happen. If you found a reason to get into a trade stay in the trade until that reason dissapears. Don't be afraid to let your profits roll, never be the first to down-tick a stock when being long, or to up-tick it when being short. We screw ourselves a lot of times for trying to grab a miserable profit. Be greedy.
