With my particular trigger based on the opening range buy zone, you should easily hit on 65% of your scalps. Once you really know what you are doing, 80% is very realistic.
Yes, I still do get stopped out two or more times each day though.
TS is to expensive for scalping, believe me. DAE and Genesis are the best for scalping, and the fastest. I pay $3.00 per trade on a flat 1000 shares. TradeStation would charge me $8.00 for the same trade. TradeStation pays "zero" interest on flat funds in the account. I am flat everyday, so that makes it even more expensive in lost interest.
The tax benefits are undeniable, and I traded the full size S+P for years, as there was no mini then.
Stocks are so much easier though. I can make a good living just trading AAPL. I trade RIMM and GOOG too, just to keep myself from getting bored. All I want is volatility in the instrument.
