Forex Day Trading - Scalping Your Way To a Fortune

By: Kelly Price
Today there are more forex day trading and scalping systems available online than ever before. It's the dream of many traders to buy one and day trade for a living and make an income by scalping regular profits and here we will look at this in more detail.

Well the theory, says regular profits - the reality is different and is:

All forex day traders and scalpers always lose.

The systems that you see on the net make big claims and track records that look great - but the track records are never real - there simulated.

This is a disclaimer you will see (or similar) read it carefully:

"cftc rule 4.41 - hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity.

Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown".

Any forex day trading system you see will be simulated and of course anyone can make a profit in hindsight - but in reality we have to trade not knowing the closing price in advance.

So why don't you ever find a forex day trading system with a real track record?

Quite simply - because forex day trading or scalping doesn't work.

The reason for this is all volatility in daily time periods is random, support and resistance levels are meaningless and prices can and do go anywhere in a day.

You can't get the odds on your side and you can't win - Period.

The proof of course is in the track record and you will never ever see a day trading or scalping system with a real one - try and find one and if you do let me know, I have been looking for 25 years!

HOW TO WIN

If You want to win at forex trading then you are going to need to look at longer time periods, you have a choice:

Forex trading following looking for trends that last for weeks or month or forex swing trading which looks for trends that last for a few days to around a week.

The one you choose is up to you but both allow you to get the odds on your side because they use data over longer periods.

If you want to win leave forex scalping to the dreamers, naive or greedy traders and concentrate on ways to get the odds in your favor and enjoy currency trading success.
