  • Scalping As A Trading Style by Vadym Graifer

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 23:10 (76-78): Scalping As A Trading Style by Vadym Graifer Scalping got a bad name during the 1998?2000 market boom, mostly thanks to the media. Does scalping really deserve the bashing? Scalpers inhabit an area of fairly small trade movements and feed off the table of bigger fish.

This ability to adjust immediately is worth it, as such a skill is necessary to prosper in dif...

Harrington Bollinger Bands and the commodity channel index (CCI) have been employed independently, in conjunction with other indicators, and with each other.
