You are right, there is nothing like guarantee in Forex; that’s the true fact! This is why, pro traders use SL & trailing stop regularly. I think trading is not just about profits it is about how much didn't lose.
Thanks mate! Yes, it is! Even, I am more sincere on the SL rather than my TP.

I have seen according to my trading experience despite of a profitable trading policy scalping cannot use in a proper way due to many restrictions. So we the traders who are particularly scalpers always have to be more careful when choosing a broker. Scalping will be successful when you could make sure lowest trading spreads which is very supportive to make profit with certainly by scalping that brings profit in a short time.

Scalper is indeed popular, the effective strategy one, it's more of arbitrageur than speculator. But it'll be too risky if one does not have sound knowledge about it, or without proper concentration or do not use SL. Earn knowledge and risk management first to earn the fitting strategy. All the best!

I only do scalping when I see the good timing, its part of the tool kit not just sticking to one thing.
Forex is only for people who want to all risk.
scalping or not, there are always risks.
Pips are absolute aphrodisiac, so trade with your brain not your lust. Forex will always be the same.

Be it failure of strategy or of hardware or your greed ot broker.
Anything you deposit can be lost.
It is worth it it do your homework this time.

Indeed. There's no guarantee in forex or in life. That is what makes the scope for both profits and loss so wide in trading. That is why it is better to be forearmed with good strategies, knowledge, skills and risk management tricks before you start trading

That means your win rate needs to be 70% just to break even (and that is with 0pip spread). Do you make any money using those values or just generate losses. I find it difficult to believe anyone can win with that risk: reward

Where did you get these values? Did you try backtesing?
There is a tool to backtest even manual strategy.

Yes, I have done a lot of backtesting.

My strategy is only based on pullbacks.

I wait for the first pullback into EMA20 + engolf.

The target is very small (6 pips) and very accurate.

What do you mean by 'There is a tool to backtest even manual strategy. '? I thought that MT4 could only backtest EAs? How would one backtest a manual strategy?

every technica system you are using is risky, short term, long term.
scalping in short term is also risky. high risk high return, that is what keeps me on going everyday.

That’s the point mate: good skilled traders don’t step back since they are confident. Without proper knowledge, everything is risky.

What about spread and commission costs ,why did you pick 3 pips as a max , 3.25 would be the right amount as a min.

Cool; do you have any specific target on trading session; or you are randomly using all of the sessions?

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 loss if you don’t make sure lowest trading spreads. So for scalping, first of all, please make sure most comfortable trading spreads.
