Are there any pure scalpers out there (nasdaq)? If so, I would be interested in hearing your methods/strategy. Do you use mental stops? What kind of risk/reward do you look for? Do you trade all day or just during certain time frames? Do you use any TA, or do you just use Level II. How has decimilzation affected your trading? Etc.... I have been expermenting with different trading styles while learning and demo trading. Scalping for 1/4 to 1/2 a point with a strict 1/8 point maximum stop seems to suit my personality and style, however it is difficult to know how succesful this would be just using a demo program. I use level II, stochastics (stocks and noodles) and gut feelings. I will go both long and short, just trying to go with the flow of the stock and jump in and out like a surfer trying to catch a wave. I have been demo trading AMAT for about 3 months now and so far have been very successful during the first hour of trading. I know that this won't be that great of an indication of how I will actually do when I go live full time in approximately one month, therefor I am looking for any tips or things to look out for in the real world. Any advise would be appreciated. I don't mean to sound rude but I would only like to hear from those traders who are successful scalpers, not traders who think it is impossible to scalp successfully.
