Scalping with Parallel Lines

Pivot point is a maximal or a minimal point which was reached by price action before touching the day minimum or maximum.
Swing is the oscillation from one pivot point to another.
Scalping  with Parallel Lines

The first scalping strategy is a method of parallel motion.
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
This trading method is used on long upward or downward movement for using retracements. It is basedon the assumption that the movement size of CD should be equal to the movement size of AB. The mostprofitable transactions are the ones opened as soon as price passes no more than 25% of the movementfrom C to D
Trading Rules
Open a buy transaction as soon as price has passed 25% above the pivot point C andimmediately place a stop-loss right below the point C-
Move a stop-loss to the level of entry to the market (i.e. to zero) as soon as price has moved50% to the specified milestone-
As soon as price has passed the point B, we place a trailing stop (the amount should be 25% of the movement to your milestone)-
Close a transaction at a profit in the point В
or wait until a transaction closes by trailing stopThis
Forex strategy can be used if you are going to trade along the main trend. Don’t try to use this strategy for catching small movements against the trend. Remember that your goal is to catch completeoscillatory motions on the market. It is quite possible that you would have to perform transactions andenter the market several times when using this strategy, moreover, when complex consolidation is present.
Small Market Trends
If you trade on small trend movements, you should avoid multiple trading systems based on performingbuy transactions on new maximums and sell transaction on new minimums. You should move along thetrend until its complete reverse.There are some highly appreciated trading systems, including tactics on drawing a stop-loss closer to thelevel of entry to the market. But, in general, the system of buying on new maximums is the worst of thepossible variants, which only leads to double losses as soon as the market is in its correction phase. Allwe can say in support of this trading system is that it is very useful at significant market oscillations.
Scalping in Trend Channel
Trend channel (see Pic 3) is a line connecting 2 pivot maximums and two pivot minimums.
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
Perform buy or sell transactions at pivot points of the formed trend channel and fix profitabletransactions at 50% or 75% of movement to the next supposed oscillatory milestone, depending onprice movement direction of the market.If the market is in an ascending trend, close profitable transactions on trading sell positions at 50% of movement to the supposed lower milestone, or close profitable transactions on trading buy positions atthe 75% point of the market rally.If the market is in a descending trend, we close trading sell positions at the 75% point of the market rallydownwards, and close trading buy positions at the 50% point of the market rally upwards.
Safety Stop-Losses
Start placing stop-losses at a distance of the width of the formed price channel from your point of entryto the market. Then we move a stop-loss to the level of entry to the market as soon as price has moved50% of distance to the specified milestone. We speak about moving a stop-loss to the closest pivotpoint right after the market started its movement in your direction so it is sensible to mention theformation of this pivot point. It is quite possible that you would want to perform buy or sell transactionsat reaction or rally points. Perform only buy transactions at the 50% point in the presence of theascending trend and perform sell transactions at the 50% point in the presence of the descending trend.These should happen on the second day of market movement against the trend (see Pic 4)
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
Then fix the received profit at the level of the previous pivot point. Your stop-loss should be placed at adistance of the width of the formed price channel from your point of entry to the market.Move a stop-loss to the level of entry to the market as soon as the market has moved 50% of priceaction to the specified milestone. So you should move a stop-loss to the pivot point, which was formed at a price movement in your direction. Do the following if the market price rebounds from the border of the formed channel (see Pic 5) and consolidation of the first trading day covered the distance of 50%from the width of the given channel:
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
Perform buy transaction in an ascending trend or perform sell transaction in a descending trend at the75% point. There are several variations of this approach. In an ascending trend, some traders buy ondescending closing of the second trading day (see Pic 6). 
Scalping  with Parallel Lines

Here they are trying to catch the intraday price retracement upwards and/or market price movementbackwards to the last pivot point.It appears from this that if the profit was not fixed within two trading days and the market price closedon your side (see Pic 7), you either should close profitable transactions or move a stop-loss to the stop-out level (plus/minus 1 point).
ABC Scalping
The classic example of short-term trades may well be the transaction pattern АВС as shown on Pic 8.
ABC Scalping
If a Forex trader predicts this price formation using his own analysis (for example, Eliott analysis), itmeans that he should sell at point C, at the level of the pivot point A, and close profitable transactions assoon as the price has passed 75% of distance from the pivot point 1 to the point C.
Mixed Scalping Forex Strategies
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
Here you can see a sell-stop order under the point C as soon as price has moved 25% of the distancefrom point A to point B. This point of entry to the market should be below the level of trading dayopening and below the closing level of the previous trading day. Trading position is closed at reachingthe level in the point B or your specified milestone. Pic 10 shows 2 quite strong intraday downwardmovements. At the same time, exhaustion of  “bears” for the second trading day occurs.
Scalping  with Parallel Lines
After opening the third trading day, it is possible to predict the beginning of the price rally upwards.Perform a buy transaction on the level of closing of the previous trading day and fix the received profitfollowing the closing results of the third trading day.
Forex Market Squeeze
As soon as the market is in the squeeze phase, we find 2 days with ascending closing.At the same time, at least 1/2 of the range of the second trading day should be above the level of closing of the first trading day (see Pic 11).
Congestion breakout scalping
Place a pending sell order at the level (a) at a distance of the intraday range from the point of closing of the second day. If the given order was not activated at the level (b), place a pending sell order one pointbelow the level of closing of the third trading day. Trading sell position should be closed at the first dayof downward price movement. This should be at the level of movement from closing of the previoustrading day to the range of the second trading day (for the variant (a)) or simply at closing of the firstdescending day (for the variant (b)). There are exceptions such as when the market formed the figureABC at upward price movement. In this case you should wait for the second day for closing profitabletransactions. We place a safety stop-loss at a distance of 1.5 intraday range above the top of the day of entry to the market.
