I have made a living in the past daytrading stocks, high volume scalping. Making 20 here 100 here and so on until the end of the day made some good profits. I had switched to option trading on commodities for the past few years. I am wanting to get back into scalping but its been a few years. I dont want stocks. I like the ym to start becuase of the low slippage and wont get killed on a reversal, like an er2. I have pretty good commissions trading at velocity basicallt 2.50 all in a round turn which amounts to half a tick in the ym. Pretty much need to avg a tick all day long to make money. Obviously that includes breaking even losing a few ticks and making a few tics but an average of 1 all day long makes money. I have beentrading in just 5 lots and doing pretty well. Any traders on here doing this pretty sucessfully. I want to step it up here soon. I know back in the old days I scalped well and made the m,ost money off news of my bloomberg terminal which i will get here soon for eco news but I gotta think scalpin with these cost will be a bit easier than stocks.
