Scratch - futures trading

Go Back

> Trading Wiki > Terms (Glossary)


A scratch trade is one that is closed, or scratched, at break even.

A scratch trade is when you feel the trade is not going your way and you want to get out at or near your entry position; you are still charged a commission by your broker or trading platform provider and any points lost or gained.

Scratch trades are a form of scalping when you are in and out of the market very quickly.
