Enter at limit *bid/ask doesn't change* exit at limit! (jokes aside anyone ever tried that?)

I'm using the dom, what's the best way to automate for a one tick scalp?

Enter at limit exit at market?

Enter at market exit at limit?

Some other complex trailing type thing? my target is 1 tick, any advice? I'm entering via my own discretion (no AI)

You'll never be profitable trading that way so the optimal move here is to abandon the method.
