There are following reasons to select one of the brokers that allow scalping:

  • You plan to trade very frequently, not necessarily to scalp for few seconds' profit. Perhaps, you just need to open many positions across multiple currency pairs.
  • You want to be able to open and close positions fast and with minimum slippage.
  • Some of these Forex brokers offer trading from tick charts, which can be useful for any strategy.
  • The expert advisor you are using may try opening several positions during a short period of time. It will have a higher chance for success with a scalping-friendly broker.
