GM Creekboy

A few questions, thinkorswim wont allow a trader to draw trend lines past price action using a tick chart, so you extend lines as needed, correct?

Also do you use a preset profit target when you scalping or do you trade to lines for you support resistance?

CreekBoy are you in a live account or Sim(demo)
