Hello, I'm a recent college grad that has been learning as much as I can about the markets and trading my Scottrade account for the past 3 years. I'm now seeking employment at a Prop Firm. One firm that I am speaking with now told me that most of the traders are scalpers and a few are overnight traders. I was wondering if anyone could give me some information as to what types of people are scalpers in terms of psychological profiles? Does anyone know where I could obtain this type of information? Is the Taylor Trading Technique a good book to read for scalping? Are there any good QUALITY books available on scalping? Last question....Is scalping a robust strategy that can be effectively employed across markets (i.e. from equities to index futures)? Thanks for your input. If you scalp for a living, please include that in your reply. Thanks again.
