⭐ What is Scalping?


Scalping is a trading strategy defined by a combination of 3 key factors:
  • frequency of trades
  • time between Open and Close of each trade
  • distance in pips between Open and Close prices

The higher the frequency of trading, the shorter the time period between Open and Close prices, the smaller the distance in pips between Open and Close, the more likely a trader will be qualified as a Scalper.
When scalping restrictions apply, they can be manifested in:
  • higher spreads
  • added commission
  • lower leverage

Is Forex Scalping legal?

Yes. Forex Scalping is a fully legal trading method/strategy.
Even though some Forex brokers would prohibit scalping practices on their platforms, it does not make scalping techniques illegal.
In the worst case scenario, when found scalping and it was against Broker's ToS rules, your trades will be nullified. Repetitive abuse will result in account being closed.

When Forex Scalping is allowed?

Scalping is allowed with all true ECN and DMA Forex brokers, and most No-Dealing Desk brokers in general.
Scalping maximises frequency of trading, which benefits Forex brokers who stream all trading order volume to their Liquidity providerss and earn commission and mark-ups on each trade.

When Forex Scalping is prohibited?

Scalping is often prohibited with Forex brokers who run Dealing Desks.
Due to the nature of the Dealing Desk execution (Over-The-Counter trading), where the broker is a direct counterparty to Clients' trades, there is often limited time left for the Dealing Desk to manage scalping orders in order to adequately profit from them.

Scalping with Forex Brokers "Yes" or "No"?

Scalping is one of the great trading phenomenons that Forex traders will sooner or later discover while trading.

Many experienced Forex traders start by asking their brokers directly: “Do you allow scalping?”.
Oftentimes, the answer will be instant and clear: "Yes" or "No".
On the other hand, brokers who allow scalping, are likely to tell about it loud and clear on their website: “All trading strategies allowed, scalping included”.

While other brokers may allow it with certain restrictions, and/or allow it, but won't encourage it, and thus won't mention it widely.

Having said that, let's examine closely: What is scalping? Which brokers allow scalping? And how to find brokers that allow scalping?

What is Scalping?

In Forex trading, scalping means using a traiding strategy that aims to profit from small price movements. This is done by opening a lot of small quick trades (in a short period or time, usually under 60 seconds), thus taking advantage of small changes in price.

For a trade to be considered as a scalping, the duration of the trade must be very short, but how short exactly? The exact time varies depending on which Forex broker you ask. For some Forex Brokers, scalping constitutes frequent trades that last under 60 seconds. For other brokers this interval is even longer — under 2 minutes. These statements can often be found in the Client Agreement or under the Terms of Service.

In any case, for those wanting to be on the safe side & away from scalping triggers, placing trades that last 5+ minutes is advised.

Additionally, one should keep in mind that sclaping triggers go up upon excessive trading activity — means, opening a large number of small trades.
Thus, if a trader made only a few trades under 2 minutes, but the general pattern of his/her trading is normal (e.g. most trades last over 5 minutes), this is not going to rise a flag in the eyes of a Forex broker, who rather looks for obvious policy violators.

Why some Forex Brokers don't like Scalpers?

The answer is simple: small profits that scalpers make tend to accumulate fast.
Oftentimes, brokers are unable (don't have enought time) to effectively hedge their risk exposure, which means they keep losing to a successful scalper.

Brokersome!

Yes, Forex scalping is, in fact, highly profitable.

...If it wasn't, NDD brokers would never worry about scalping in the first place.

Another reason it's worth trying, is that you can quickly assess your scalping strategy for potential profitability/failure before incurring large drawdowns.

It's a very viable and flexible trading method!

If Forex scalping profitable?

Marius

I heard that if you scalp, you might not be notified, but quietly placed on a different "book"... as a result, all of a sudden your scalping becomes tough to profit from..
