While scalping, you aim at consistently making small profits and immediately cut your losses when they occur. You will frequently make small profits when there is a slight change in price. In scalping, you look to make gains from the price fluctuations that regularly occur, and therefore you need not rely on the long-term trends.

One drawback of scalping is that you need a lot of concentration and quick speed to make a market decision. The costs associated with scalping are also high; therefore, they can eat up on your earnings.

Before you start scalping, you need to know how to use technical analysis to see what you will be facing when you decide to enter a particular market position. A functional analysis tool will help you plan when to enter and exit a market position.
