What is Scalping?

Scalping is trading with the intent of making small profits through quick buying and selling.

Scalping involves quick trades, from a few trades to several hundred in a single trading day. Scalpers may attempt to buy at the bid price and sell at the ask price, profiting from the difference in the spread if the price of the security does not move.
