Why do brokers not like scalping?

2 questions I have :

  1. Why do brokers not like scalping? (Title of thread)

      I would have thought that regular scalping means regular 4/5 pip commissions for the broker - are they not happy?   :mad: 
  2. How many pips do you have to make before scalping is no longer considered scalping, but rather, regular trading? :confused:

i agree with Tess, if its a bucketshop they wont allow scalping.
I am trading with STIFX there website is forex trading, forex trading education, forex brokerage, forex mini account, online forex trading, managed forex trading, best forex broker who allows scalping, they are STP, as its processes directly with there liquidity providers, so they have no problem. And i am sure there are others too as well.

For bucket shop scalping is a loss for them.
For STP, ECN based brokers they are fine with it, as they arent playing with there clients, the order processes directly and quickly to numerous clearing and liquidity providers.


Sorry, I am in Australia - we do not have bucket shops here. Our economy is regulated much better than that. Brokers here for any of the money markets are very carefully regulated and we customers are well protected.

My original questions, therefore, still stand.
