It is the reply email I received from Marketiva support after I submitted inquiry about scalping. "After I read the service agreement carefully, I found a clause about scalping. I am new in FOREX trading and would like to know what is scalping and why you prohibit it? What is scalping actually? Is it a hacking technique?" Scalping is so distinctive technique that there is no chance you will be applying it, if you do not know what it is. We will not explain you that, since I will be teaching you an illegal technique on our platform. You can always go to Google and find definition and forums that discuss that. We provide our services, with that limitation: no scalping. If someone one wants to use scalping, that is OK, but it cannot be on our platform. Simple explanation: there is no way we can execute scalping orders with our counterparties. All other dealers in the world do not allow that, the only difference is that we are fair and we say that in advance. There are techniques that a dealer can use to crush a scalper in one position only. We simply do not want to do that - we do not want to go into that mud. If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind Regards, David Persena Dealing Specialist Marketiva Corporation What's your opinion about this broker? Are they doing right thing by prohibiting scalping?
