CHAPTER NINEWORLD’S SIMPLEST 5 PIP SCALPING METHODFor a book that was intended to help you build your confidence, it’s spent a long timeinstead discussing various trading methods and systems.But there is a very good reason for that (aside from the need to fill up some pages withcontent):All of the methods discussed so far have an extraordinarily high win rate when comparedto your average 97 Clickbank system.And when your confidence level is suffering after slogging through a series of losingtrades, there is no better prescription for a return to the Higher Level of Confidence youonce enjoyed than winning a few trades in a row and washing off all that Loser Dust youpicked up earlier.And of all the methods discussed so far, none is any better than this ultra-simple 5 PipScalping System.The Rules are easy to follow:1.2.3.4.5.Trade the EUR/USD on the 1 Minute charts;Apply the OsMA Indicator to your charts, using the “12,26,9” settings;For Buy trades, enter as soon as the first OsMA bar closes ABOVE the “0” line;For Sell trades, enter as soon as the first OsMA bar closes BELOW the “0” line’Exit when you see 5 pips profit.While this method will work with pretty much any pair, I strongly recommend you limitit to the EUR/USD, for two reasons: first, the spread on the EUR/USD is normally thesmallest, no matter who you trade with, and this gets you to 5 on the trade much fasterthan with pairs that traditionally have a spread of 2-3 pips; and second, the EUR/USD istraditionally a pair that does not experience quick, wild swings in price, increasing thechance that any one trade will move 5 pips after the OsMA “0” line is crossed.Of course, all the usual rules of trading still apply: trade during times of higher volume(the London and New York sessions) and do not get into a trade right before a schedulednews release (it just isn’t worth the risk). I’ve found the first hour of the London session(3 a.m. eastern time) and a two hour period after the U.S. session begins (9-11 a.m.eastern) are the most consistent, and have had plenty of days where I scored 5 out of 5winning trades.

That does NOT mean you will win every trade during those particular hours. It justmeans I’ve found that this method works best during those 3 hour segments. Losses canand do still occur. But there have normally been more wins than losses, and I normallyend the session with a positive pip count.Other than that, there are no other limitations on the trade. Just get out at 5 and wait forthe next trade to set up. Other than those random days when the EUR/USD is trendingstrongly in one direction, there are usually enough trades in any two hour segment toeasily make your 20 for the day.As for a stop loss, either apply a 10 pip stop-loss, or manually get out at either -10 pips,or when the first OsMA bar closes on the opposite side of the “0” line (this will usuallysave you 2-3 pips over waiting to see -10).For myself, I usually set a daily limit of 20 pips, simply because I’ve reached that point inmy trading life where I’m trying to develop some non-forex related interests, and bylimiting myself to 20 pips (or 2 hours) of trading, I can achieve all of my financial goalsand have plenty of time left over to pursue those other interests.But more importantly for anyone who has just suffered a string of losing days, 20 pips aday is an achievable goal that allows you to start building up momentum, as well as yourtrading account, while also allowing you to manage all of those negative emotions thatsurface when you find yourself mired in a losing streak.I know of a semi-professional poker player who follows the same path whenever hesuffers through a few losing sessions. He normally plays 20/40 Hold ‘Em, where thepots regularly exceed a thousand dollars. But after he gets smacked around by the otherplayers, he goes online and plays in a bunch of 2/4 and 5/10 games, against players ofa lesser caliber.All it takes is three or four winning sessions at his lower level, and he is back on his gameand ready to resume playing in the bigger money games.As he explains it, it’s not about the money (and there is obviously a lot less at stake in a 2/4 game than there is in a 20/40 game).It’s about winning pots and reminding himself he really does know how to play the gameat a very high level.The same applies to Forex—the best way to break a losing streak is to rack up a series ofsmaller wins and remind yourself you really do know how to trade; you just got caughtup in circumstances and needed to break free of that losing cycle.Winning 4-5 trades in a single session, scalping 5 pips at a time, will go a long waytowards breaking that cycle.

Here are three chart captures from last Friday. The first is from the opening of theLondon session at 3 a.m. eastern time. The next two are from 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. easterntime. Friday was a very good trading day, and this simple method worked likegangbusters. On days when trading is less active, this method still will work well, butyou may see fewer trades, and you will definitely see smaller price moves than the onesdemonstrated here.But the purpose of these charts is not to convince you to trade this method. They aremerely demonstrations of when and where you enter a trade (with the exit pre-determinedat 5 pips).Pic 9A5 trades.5 winners.25 pips net.What more need be said?

Pic 9BTrade #1 on the above chart demonstrates a situation that can and does occur with somefrequency. You can tell from the downward slope of the OSMA bars starting just prior to13:00 that price is moving down and that a Sell trade is likely to be signaled in the nextfew minutes.However, as you can see at #1 above, price rallied and the OSMA bars began to startmoving back up, without ever once crossing and closing below the zero line. This is justas valid a signal as if the bars crossed and closed over the zero line for the first time. Youmay go days without seeing this happen, and you might see it happen more than onceduring a single session (as we do here at both #1 and #3).Trades #4 and #5 also demonstrate something important. Sometimes this method givesyou a (GASP!) losing trade. Here we racked up 2 losers in a row for 10 pips each.4 winning trades x 5 pips 202 losing trades x 10 pips -20Net for this session: 0 pips.Some days (or sessions) just turn out this way. It really is NO BIG DEAL!No one wins every trade. NO ONE! Get used to losing a trade now and then because it’sgoing to happen no matter how hard you work or how much you pray. As long as you

are using solid money management, losses should never be a big deal. You just shakethem off and keep moving forward.Pic 9CTrade #3 went nowhere fast and cost us 10 pips, but the other 4 trades netted 5 apiece.4 winners x 5 pips 20 pips1 loser x 10 pips -10 pips.Net gain for the session: 10 pips.For the day: 35 pips (25 10 0 35 pips).How fast would you be quitting your real job if you were knocking out 35 pips gains on adaily basis?That’s a rhetorical question don’t answer it. My point is, there are some very simpletrading methods out there that if you stick with them, you’re going to end up makingmoney as a Forex trader.All you have to do is make up your mind you’re going to stick with one of them andactually start placing trades.Real money trades.

The rest will pretty much take care of itself.%%%%%%%%%%%%I hope you found this Chapter to be both entertaining and informative. The “5 Pip Scalp”has long been a tool I fall back on when I find myself stuck in any kind of a losing streak(and yes, I get into losing streaks just like everyone else). It’s a quick way to right theship and get start heading back in the right direction.If you’d like to learn some additional high-probability trading methods, along with someunique but very effective money management and trading psychology tricks and tips,visit my website at www.sensible-forex.com and pick up a copy of my latest book,“Sensible Forex.”
