Every Day we use the following Scalp Trading Strategies…




Price action initially was very choppy and oscillating in pre-market. We waited patiently for more weight of evidence after the opening bell and took and ultra-aggressive LONG 2-bar reversal setup. We micro-managed the trade and took 2.0+ points profit, and once we had confirmation of the bullish intraday momentum, we took another LONG flag pattern breakout and micro-managed the trade for 10+ points profit.    

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.
