Scalping As Strategy For Making Small Profits Quickly

What Exactly Do We Mean By “Scalping”

Scalping is a term that is most generally used for buying something at one price, showing that it has value through marketing (either by contacts and conversations or through actual advertisement) and then selling it again, as quickly as possible, for a small profit.

It is easy to thinking of it in terms of ticket scalpers who also take advantage of their market, buy at a lower price and then attempt to sell when the market is ripe and they can get a better price for the tickets, due to market demand. The only difference in these two worlds is that scalping is perfectly legal in day trading of stocks and currencies.

Why A Small Profit Is Worth Your Time

Volume is key. Whenever you can purchase anything, regardless of it being a stock, a car, a collector item or even a currency, and sell it for a small profit you can turn that into large profit by selling it in volume.

While it is true that two cents isn’t much of a profit on the dollar, but when you sell the equivalent of a million of those dollars and made two cents on each one….the math isn’t so hard now is it?

Buying and Selling Currency For Profit
