Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…



After the opening bell, price action continued to move higher the first few minutes before forming a healthy flag pattern and retracement back towards the 20MA on the 1-minute charts. We waited for the 3-bar reversal and flag pattern break out and took an aggressive LONG entry. We micro-managed the trade with a tight trailing stop and once price action went in our favor, we moved out stop to break even. Using a trailing stop, we closed partial position and took partial profits of 2.0+ points and used trailing stop on remaining position while locking in profits.

With price action at all-time highs, we patiently focused on long setups for more trading opportunities.

Duration: 5+ minutes

For ultra-aggressive traders, during the first-hour session, there were at least 2 aggressive entries that could lead to quick small profits.
