This is golden advice. Plus there is this tendency for new traders associate making tons of money with lots of quick trades. Its not that easy and some long term trend followers will probably do way better than you.
I was obsessed with scalping when I first started. When i took the exact same strategy (that i used to scalp) to a H4 / H1 chart and learned to “turn off the chart” I instantly became profitable.
Totally agree with the above. The fact is you don’t know yourself as a trader yet and you’re putting yourself in the most difficult time frame to act. Before deciding if scalping is for you take time to understand your personal habits.
Do you change your mind on trend direction every few hours/minutes?
Do you feel anxious to take profits when already in a winning trade?
Think about how you respond to your emotions before, during, and after a trade. Its entirely possible you’re built to be a scalper. My input here is just to take a step back and understand why you want to scalp. There are many highly profitable trading strategies, and the one that brings you the most profit is the one that fits with your personality.
