Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…



After the opening bell, price action initially moved above the 20MA on the 1-minute charts and aggressively took a LONG entry. Once price action went in our favor, we moved the stop to break even, and with no follow thru from price action, we closed the trade with minimal profit (no loss). Then price action became very choppy and consolidated around the 20MA sideways in a very tight intraday range.

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