There is a huge amount of information about trading on the Web sources - the whole life is not enough to learn it at all. Studying everything in a row is a bad tactic. Why? You will create confusion in your head, spend time on useless content, and make the standard mistakes of beginners.

It is important to understand that scalping is not a profession, it is a craft. According to the authors, the theoretical course can be completed in 2-3 weeks. Then you need to move on to the practice of the craft (to trading). It is useless to continue learning theory without practice.

Below is a list of verified sources of information and services. It will be enough for you at the start.

3. Open an account

To start trading, you will need an account on one of the exchanges that CScalp "knows" how to work with. These exchanges are: Binance, Bybit, EXMO, BitMEX, Bitfinex, OKX (OKEx).
You can connect several accounts from different exchanges to CScalp, as well as several accounts from the same exchange. This is convenient, you save time on switching between accounts.

If you already have an account on one of these exchanges, use it. If there is no account, then you should open a new one. This can be done on the exchange's website. It will take 2-3 minutes, you will only need an email.

Cryptocurrency and exchange trading laws vary between countries. Before opening an account, ensure that you respect the laws of your country.

If the exchange has a referral program, then open an account using a referral link to deduct the fee! Scalpers trade actively, so the fee size is important. Referral links for different exchanges can be found here.

Check out our Cyber Security Guide for Traders.

Then top up your account. We recommend you to start with a small amount, it is not worth transferring a lot of money to the exchange for a beginner! You can top up your account in various ways, read about it on the website of your exchange.

Discover the personal account of the exchange, install the mobile application. You will need a mobile application for insurance. If there are problems on the PC you work on, then you will be able to close the position urgently through the mobile application.

Please note that the exchanges are divided into several "internal" platforms. Instruments of a certain type are traded on each platform. For example, on the Moscow Stock Exchange, stocks, futures and currencies are traded in different sections. On cryptocurrency exchanges as well as on stock exchanges.

First of all, scalpers on cryptocurrency exchanges are interested in perpetual futures. Do not confuse perpetual futures with quarterly futures. What are the advantages of perpetual futures? They have the maximum trading activity. The best scalping trades in crypto trading are made with perpetual futures.

However, spot is also important. Cryptocurrencies, tokens, and fiat are traded here. Even if the scalper trades only perpetual futures, trader still "looks" at the spot. In the order book of spots, scalpers usually convert assets (as in an exchange), and trade cryptocurrencies and tokens in the margin trading mode.

Typically, CScalp uses a separate connection for each "internal platforms" (spot, margin trading, perpetual and quarterly futures).

Connect to perpetual futures, to spot (in view mode). CScalp will be connected automatically if trader is launching Binance perpetual futures (video tutorial with text)

After connecting, set the minimum traded amount and train yourself to make orders until you stop getting confused. Here is the instruction.

After you have the first trades, set up a Trader's Diary. With its help, you will analyze your trading, search for and correct mistakes.

The rates of crypto exchanges are quite complex to understand. The amount of the fee is influenced by many factors: referral program, trading volume, exchange token, maker/taker, etc. Try to understand the example of Binance (detailed article here), the other exchanges have similar rates.

6. Risk management

Before you start to make trades, you need to learn the basics of risk-management in scalping. Remember, if a trader does not know how to manage risks (majority of beginners don't know how to do it), they will lose money in any case. No matter how the trader understands the market.

Working with risks divided in two parts:

  1. The understanding how to control them (theory);
  2. The learning to control them (practice).
For people of certain psychetypes, the second part is too difficult.

Watch the video of How to control risks in scalping (20 min). Take a piece of paper and then following the author calculate the control of the scalping risk manually. Use your own account size for calculations. After you have learned to count manually", learn to count through a bot.

Learn what slippage is. Slippage could also be if the trading amount is not large (minimum trading amount on each exchange is different). The larger your traded amount, the greater the slippage. If you understand the essence of slippage, you will understand why scalping is limited by the liquidity in the order book.

10. What’s next? Practice!

If you have successfully completed the previous 9 steps, then you are ready for development in scalping better than 99% of beginners. But it's too early to be happy. There is a long way of self-improvement ahead.

You have a lot of training days ahead of you. Each day will be similar to the previous one as a twin brother. At the beginning, we said that if scalping is not your hobby, it will be boring...

After trades that you've made, you gain experience. Your experience will improve your results. However, the trading experience is always different. The experience can be huge or close to zero.

How can i maximize the experience of the trade? Make trades according the algorithm:
1. Choose the situation (think clearly: what is the reason? what is the risk?);
2. Make trade (entry/exit);
3. Write a detailed comment in the diary;
4. Come back in time and analyze your actions.

Traders often miss points 3 and 4. I made a trade, looked at the result, forgot and "ran on". You grow slow, because of it.

It is good if you record your trades. Then you can review both profitable and unprofitable trades for analysis. The benefits of this exercise can hardly be overestimated. You will study faster.

When you get your first results, start gradually increasing your trading amount. Where is the limit? Someone stops at earning $1,000 a month, someone goes further. It's all by your own choice.

Happy profits guys!
