  • Scalping or Trend Trading?

    Going back to the early days...

    During the dot com bubble trend trading became increasingly popular among investors. All anyone had to do was to find a strong stock and jump on board with the hope that the price would rise further with later money coming into the market and a continued demand in the next few weeks and even months.

    Of course the bubble popped, and so did the investors buying in the top half lost a considerable amount of money. The trend for those few who managed to stay out of trouble developed an everlasting friendship and the saying 'the trend is your friend' held true for them. While others got badly burnt by the same trend and decided to never to return back to over-night investing again.

    Today, times have changed...

    With the long term investor turning towards day trading, a new generation of even shorter term speculators is born... they are known as Scalpers.

    Scalping offers some great benefits, the main being to speculate and make money with short term price movements. Scalpers often jump in and out of the market capturing a small part of a the move, because they are not looking for large big trends they often make money with these small price fluctuations which are always present in the market.

    Unlike the traditional long term buy and hold investor, scalpers see their trade results within minutes and make adjustments to the trades which don't show a favourable result.

    With the use of margin, scalping offers great incentives for traders starting out with a small bank.

    A good scalper aims for quality trades and can make money with just one of two successful trades a trade.

    Stock Market Investing For Beginners

    "Step into the arena and hold on to your hat. Don't get discouraged if you don't make 8 trillion dollars in your first month. Trading is not a get rich quick scheme. Realize that trading is a skill and just like any other skill it takes time to learn. Have convictions in your decisions in life and trading. Ignore the comments and "advice" of those that have never traded a day in their life."

    I prefer trend trading. Bigger profits and I think you need a larger account for scalping.
