Scalping is a very popular trading style because it allows obtaining multiple profits with short-term trades and can be used in practically any asset and financial instrument. Likewise, it does not require a deep knowledge of fundamental analysis (although it is always convenient to take these events into account) or technical analysis. In fact, many scalping trading systems are based on relatively simple approaches.
Scalping is applied in short-term time frames in which micro trends are formed that last a few minutes and require fast entries and exits. For this reason, scalping is not for traders who prefer to perform long-term trades that generate hundreds and even thousands of pips of profit, which in fact appear only a few times a month.
