Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…




Price action immediately after the opening bell rallied above the prior day’s high and found some minor resistance before rolling over and retracing 100% back towards the opening bell and then started to form a series of lower highs and lower lows on the 1-minute chart.  We took several ultra-aggressive SHORT setups below the opening bell based on candlestick reversal patterns. We micro-managed the trade and took 2.0+ points profits from each of them.

Duration: 15+ minutes

For ultra-aggressive traders, during the first-hour session, there were at least 3 aggressive entries that could lead to quick small profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there were at least 2 good candlestick or chart pattern setups for quick profits.
