Price Action Scalping Strategies

1: Momentum Break and Retest

The first strategy is a break with momentum and a new rapid test of the level of a break.

When the price performs the new rapid test at the old break level, we look for signs of activation of the price action A + to enter the broken movement. The best way to do this is with the first support/resistance test.

The first step for this strategy is to find a key level in a higher time frame that the price seeks to break.

When we notice that the price breaks from this level, we can quickly move to smaller time frames for possible scalp exchanges.

Here is an example;

The first chart shows an important resistance level on a 4-hour chart from which the price has just come out. This is when we would move to smaller time frames to see the price action.

Graph # 1: 4-hour time frame

The following graph is the 30-minute time frame that shows the same level and shows us that the price has skyrocketed and is now making a rapid pullback and retesting the old resistance and the new support.

Graph # 2: 30-minute time frame

The last graph in this example is the 15-minute time frame where the price has turned back to the same support level and has triggered a 2-bar upside reversal to lengthen with the rapid breaking movement.

2: Reverse Reversal

When you operate fast reversals in smaller periods of time, you still want to make sure that the levels from which you perform your operations are of high quality.

This can be made much easier if you mark your levels in higher time frames and then use these levels to search for scalp operations in smaller time frames.

After marking this level, we can begin to observe to see if the price performs more tests and if it moves to smaller time frames to observe the activation inputs of the price action.

Graph # 2: 1-hour time frame

An example of this is below;

The first graph shows an important resistance level in a higher time frame where the price has repeatedly tested and shows that this level is a proven resistance.

Graph # 1: 1-hour time frame

The last graph below shows the price by testing another of the same key resistance in a 15-minute time frame and firing a 2-bar reversal trigger to shorten.

Graph # 3: 15-minute time frame

Summary
Trading for shorter periods of time is fast and has much less time to make quality decisions.

If things start to go wrong, then they can go wrong very quickly, so we say that most traders should start at higher periods of time and then work there more slowly as they go.

As with all new strategies, be sure to practice them in your demo account before risking real money and make sure you are profitable before taking risks with real cash.
