Scalping is the worst thing you can do, especially on forex

True, I noticed that right away with that spread.

Scalping for me means trading just to the nearest target, usually a pivot. I've been doing ok with that in futures. The spread scalping is what I rarely do, except in the long bond $31 per tick ZB.

My slippage has been extremely rare since I left TradeStation, it was daily there, now only 2 or 3 times a year, and never more than one tick.

Should be a busy week coming up, more to watch now.
