"Scalping" can have various descriptions depending on whom you ask. Some folks would say that some "Forex Surfing" techniques are considered "scalps" due to the small size and duration of the trades.

Different traders have different techniques for scalping, but one thing that can be universally agreed upon is that scalping involves tiny trades (both in amplitude and duration).

Typically, "scalping" is a specialized technique that involves making a tiny trade to capture a very small movement in the market. Whereas a "position trader" may engage in trades that are
intended to last for multiple days to months (aiming for targets of hundreds to thousands of pips), and a "day trader" typically engages in trades that are intended to last for less than a day
(aiming for targets ranging from 20 to 100 pips), a "scalper" engages in trades that might only last a few minutes aiming for targets of 5+ pips. Copyright @ 2011 - Theme by NanLimo - Thanks to Google
