Day 1 Scalping

Recommended Posts

Had a wee try at scalping today it's a whole lot harder than it looks.I was going to use training mode but I don't really see the point as the object of the exercise is to teach myself to get out quickly and just take a small loss.Training mode lets you do things that I doubt you would do when doing it for real. So after 13 or 14 races it was a case of win some lose some overall a loss on the day of £1.20. Some went well others not so much but it was an experience I realised that because you are in and out quickly losses are small and some positions can be recovered so the loss on the day is bearable as I have lost more taking my hanky out of my pocket. Taken over all races that I tried the average loss on the day was something close to 9 pence per race so for me another part of the learning curve.I'm sure If I carried on until the end of racing tonight I may have ended with a small profit but my dogs need walked and I need fed.I hope everyone has had a great day.

Sorry I'm late no trading for me today as I needed a new internet router and It arrived today so just back on the net a few moments ago.There will be nothing tomorrow as I take Sunday off back on Monday when If I may I will put up some selections that I hope to scalp before play without hedging with the hope to hedge out for a greater profit in play.Hope all are having a good weekend.
