I have seen according to my trading experience the newcomers always looking for scalping strategy that brings profit in a short time than others techniques , but scalping sometimes causes a great losses if you don’t make sure lowest trading spreads. So for scalping first of all please make sure most comfortable trading spreads.

All trading is risky if you don't know what you are doing. Scalping is no different than that.

If you are trading here without enough trading knowledge, then it’s risky for you! But scalping is the most popular trading strategy here, I do scalping with a fixed SL and TP level!

Yes, the trading spread is a very important facility for the scalpers! But, without proper knowledge, scalping trading is too much risky as like others trading styles!

yes, scalping has more risky than long-term trades. Cos it gets a lot of whispers from market that not influence the real trend.

My 5 cents :)

* Spread - good to be tight, but this is not so important as execution. With other words even if you have narrow spread, but execution is bad and always with slippage, then the spread you see does not worth nothing!
* Scalping - is not more risky than long term trading, just requires proper mental attitude. The trades are lasting seconds, or minutes, but in the EOD you do not have open positions and you do not have market risk transferring overnight (what about major news came out, earthquake in zone of the currencies traded, flooding, unusual events came out ... etc.) :)

Hi all,
Yes, scalping is risky at times when you are a beginner and you do not have an idea of execution time of the trade. As the market prices and spreads fluctuates with micro second count of time so, it’s better to gain experience on long term trading and test all the market conditions before moving to the scalping style of trading.

Scalping is part of trading so of course it is risky. However it is not for everybody. The newly beginner traders have no patience for a profiting start. Mainly because they know from their friends that it is easy to trade, because they have seen some commercials, because they have read in some forums that trading gets you fast and easy money and 100 more wrong statements. Then they read just one or two definitions for scalping and start directly with live account. BOOM! 1-2 weeks and the money are gone. After that beginners mainly do one of these 3 things: 1. start to learn more about trading; 2. completely terminate trading as part of their life; 3. continue to trade the same way until they loose almost all of their bank account. So please to all - SCALPING is not that easy as it looks!!!

Accept the loss as experience
