You can earn money in scalping, but there are certain risks. The main thing from my point of view is to enter the market in the right place and accurately determine the exit point for yourself in advance. Don't be greedy, earn some money and get out.

Short term trading (scalping) requires a high level trading skills and is emotionally very demanding. If you are good at it, your results will be very consistent but keep in mind that it is emotionally very demanding.

I hope this helps.

There are risks everywhere in this area, but I don’t think they are very important in this area.

Scalping has higher costs, you have to have high probability system to make it work.

For example, you target 10pips, you incur up 0.5pips as commission to broker. That is 5% pip gain goes to commission

This is the crux of why scalping is a bad strategy and will just cause you to lose money

For newbie scalping is not good. Scalping is done in lower time frame. And in the lower time frame there is too much noise. A new trader needs to learn how to control the mind. If they start scalping it's become difficult for them to develop a healthy trading psychology.

Scalping is a quick in and out trading strategy which is of course risky. Spreads is a big matter in this strategy.

No. As a matter of fact it can deliver extremely consistent results. The downside is that it is time consuming and mentally challenging.

If you don't have any knowledge about the scalping strategy, you can not make money from this market. So, before using scalping strategy gather all knowledge about this at first.

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.

Yes, its risky if you cant sit in front of your system while scalping. :P
The more your practice, the more you learn.

I myself, when I started scalping trading with the Amarkets broker, and I don't see anything wrong with that, the main thing is to do everything.

It is risky for those who don’t calculate their risks. However, new traders are advised to not try scalping because of the greater skill it requires.

It is risky if you have absolutely no idea how to make use of it. Otherwise, it seems to be a good trading strategy to earn profits.
