Day trading success rate is <1 % of traders make any money,according detailed searches on google, by searching for success rate of day traders.Scalping is even riskier, because the scalper  risks more and takes small profits.Would the trader not be better off, trading longer term and swing trading?

Scalpers get defeated for the same reasons as intraday price action gurus defeated.




Most scalpers get scalped, this is a very well known proverb in trading.


forum educational charlatans start attacking members, when the reality and truth is posted.




Here are results of back tests, using same strategy to scalp trades versus longer term swing trading.Scalping lost more money  than swing trading, swing trading has higher probability of becoming profitable, depending on the strength of strategy.

    • I used to enjoy playing poker and blackjack at casinos, but my love for gambling turned into an addiction when I started losing more often than winning. It took hitting rock bottom for me to seek help and change my habits. I joined a support group and worked with a therapist to develop healthier habits. Now, I still go to casinos, but I do so with caution and moderation, setting strict limits and avoiding addictive games. I've learned to control my impulses and make smarter decisions when it comes to my finances.
