Those who have the willingness to discern the rising trend quickly and derive benefit of the Forex market can only flourish in scalping. Reap small benefits within calculated risks are the kind of scalpers. They can trade as many times as possible. Forex trading is risky; Scalpers need to have the sharpness to get the indicator, and react quickly with the signals. It is necessary for them to have a strategic perspective and planning for entry and exit, so that they do not lose time in current trade. Once the desired edge is reached, one must exit immediately.
According to 10option’s binary options blog, ‘Lagging indicators’ such as moving averages, MACD and momentum indicators are not particularly useful for the scalpers, but they help in speculation. They also offer more accurate information regarding longer term trades with their delayed indications. In contrast ‘leading indicators’ such as oscillators-stochastic and relative strength index- are more accurate and suggest positively on which side of the trade the scalper must be. No wonder they are more popular!
Oscillators will point out whenever there is a difference in the market and the extremes are touched. In that case, they look for reversal signals, in the form of candle stick analysis or charts to determine when to exit.
