Best Tools for Scalping

Scalping Cryptocurrencies

In 2020, crypto markets are not profiled strongly towards either “long term trading” or “short term trading”. The crypto markets have a lot of both types of traders.

Often, crypto traders will resort to scalping during sideways markets situations.

Formation Scalping

Formation scalping is a trading technique that leverages the regularity of market ranges.

This is a popular technique among Wyckoffian traders. They have a good hand on recognising market ranges.

Formation scalping allows them to earn additional profit on trading the sideways phase of the market before a trend is decided.

Automated Scalping

Scalping is regarded as one of the hardest trading techniques to steadily profit from.

Short-term trading is not more difficult and does not require more skill than longer-term trading. The reason is that the fast speed of trading takes a mental toll on the trader.

There are traders who relish in scalping the fast moving market, but it does take a certain specific personality.

By all means try scalping for yourself, if you think you might be one of them.

Alternatively, you still can capitalize on these fast, small trades by using a scalping bot. The trading automation platform 3commas would be a good place to start.
