A trading strategy in which traders aim to make small profits by executing many trades over a short period. Trades are typically held for just a few seconds or minutes. Scalpers usually use high leverage and short-term charts, such as 1-minute or 5-minute charts, to identify opportunities for quick trades.
Managing risk is essential, as a single losing trade can quickly erase the small profits from each transaction. Scalping is unsuitable for all traders and requires significant time, effort, and experience to master.
