Scalping

Scalping is a very frantic strategy for short, intraday trades. Based on the openings of many positions, when the earnings potential from a single position is small, but the total earnings potential from a lot of winning positions simultaneously is high.

A Scalping Strategy helps to reduce risks, but its disadvantages are the need for high trading capital and the high number of spreads you will have to pay your brokers.
