About: Scalping is a trading strategy that attempts to capture a very small amount of pips per trade. Usually, traders who scalp, stay in open trades for a very short period of time that sometimes it can be a few seconds only. - A typical scalper can open and close many positions in a normal day. For this reason, the trader needs to be very cautious because he/she is not allowed to suffer great losses from his/her open positions or to neglect some of his/her positions for others. Because scalping is very demanding it may not be suitable for full-time traders and because of this there are automated trading systems that have been developed that their target is to run a scalping trading strategy for a full day. - Ideally, scalpers tend to search for Forex brokers that offer competitive spreads or raw spreads with low commissions. These types of Brokers offer better opportunities for scalpers to run a successful scalping strategy. It goes without saying that a scalper will prefer to go for a Forex broker with spreads that are lower than 1 pip rather to go for a Forex Broker that offers spreads from 2 pips or even higher. - As far as the Forex Brokers are concerned, there are many that do not accept extreme scalping strategies. There are many reasons why they may not allow scalping strategies but the most common excuse is that a scalpernormally sends many order requests to their servers during a day that can actually crash the server of a Broker or even slow it down. As a result this will eventually affect the scalping strategies of the trader.
