Overnight price action consolidated around the 20MA before retesting the prior low area and forming a 2X bottom in the 62% Fibonacci area.

Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…




After the opening bell, price action started to move lower and crossed below multiple swing pivot lows on the 1-minute charts. We patiently waited for confirmation of a lower high and flag pattern below the opening bell and we took an ultra-aggressive scalp trade SHORT based on the flag pattern breakdown. Once price action moved in our favor, we moved the stop to break even and with all the choppy, overlapping candlesticks, we took 2.0+ points profits.        

Duration: 10+ minutes

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

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there were no good candlestick or chart pattern setups for quick profits.
