Scalping - not for everyone 😬

Scalping is like trying to catch fish with your bare hands in a fast-moving river. Just as a skilled fisherman can snatch fish from the water with split-second timing, a scalper aims to capture small price movements in the market within seconds or minutes.

If you’re new to the markets, get a headstart into the world of scalping with Mukta Dhamankar’s Basics of Scalping Course.

Much like the river's ever-changing flow, the market can be unpredictable. Successful scalping requires the right strategy, risk management, and execution. Today, we’re covering a simple, yet effective scalping strategy that involves using a moving average crossover and RSI ↓

MA + RSI Scalping Strategy

1) Defining your universe

As explained above, scalping is suitable for stocks and indices where there is:
- Enough volatility to benefit from quick moves
- A large quantity of shares are traded

Taking these into consideration, trading in major indices like the NIFTY, BANKNIFTY, NIFTYMIDCAP50, and stocks from the NSE200 universe are ideal.

2) How to enter & exit

Here’s how we will enter and exit a trade using this strategy using a 5-minute timeframe:

BULLISH SCALP

1) Wait for the 9-period EMA to cross above the 9-period SMA. Give preference to a fresh crossover over just the existence of the EMA being above the SMA.

2) Set the RSI to a 28-period lookback period. The RSI should be above 65.

3) Hold on to the trade until higher highs & higher lows are getting formed.

4) The SMA can act as a stop loss for the trade.

BEARISH SCALP

1) Wait for the 9-period EMA to cross below the 9-period SMA. Give preference to a fresh crossover over just the existence of the EMA being below the SMA.

2) Set the RSI to a 28-period lookback period. The RSI should be below 35.

3) Hold on to the trade until lower highs & lower lows are getting formed.

4) The SMA can act as a stop loss for the trade.

This strategy works well in the 1-minute, 2-minute, and 3-minute timeframes as well.
