In spite of scalping, do I hold too much😱・・・❗❓


Do I have to limit the holding time because what I do is scalping❓❓

Rough idea

  1. Set the holding time for 5, 10, 30, 60, 120mins.
  2. If the time reached, market order is filled instantly.
  3. The market order rate is determined subjectively by watching my video.
  4. Apply all the day when the video is available.

👉The 282 positions are qualified.


First of all, I made an Excel spreadsheet which wrapping up whole of the 282 positions.


Then, calculae the holding time and extract the trades which exceed each setting time.f:id:zyakusyotrader:20200716234251p:plain

The ⚫ marked position should be cut as time limit order, so let's check it in video!!


10 mins of time limit order

If you want to see the result, check the button below please🙏


Watch the result!!



In short・・・

10 mins time limit order lessen 340pips of losses.

42 out of 282 positions are qualified.


30 mins time limit order


14 out of 282 positions. I can lessen 380pips of loss.


One hour time limit order


7 out of 282 positions. I can lessen 390pips of loss.


5 mins time limit order

80% of 282 positions' holding time are less than 5 mins.


82 out of 282 positions. I can lessen 430pips of loss.


Supplement#1.Gross profit per holding time

  • Less than 300secs      :+409pips
  • Between 300secs and 600secs :-85pips
  • Between 600secs and 900secs :-52pips
  • Between 900secs and 1200secs :-37pips
  • Between 1200secs and 1800secs:-271pips
  • Between 1800secs and 3600secs:113pips
  • More than 3600secs       :-532pips

Supplement#2.Distribution of holding time


(Positions from 2020/5/19 are qualified.)

Average holding time:481.26secs (362.91secs~599.62secs)

See the fine-tuned histogram!!



Extreme datas are excluded.

Datas are simply alligned and cut off when they are roughly the normal distribution.


Cutting off time is 720secs.

Cutting off pip is plus or minus70pips.



Supplement#3. Relation between profit and holding time

 Below is the relation between holding time and profit.


What is suggested❓

👉There is no relation until 12 mins. That means,

 You can hold as much as 12 mins.



About 80% of the positions are executed within 5mins and these positions are totally made profit.

Holding more than one hour is not good.

    👉If time limit order is executed at one hour, 600pips of losses is lessen.

Most of the position held more than five minutes made loss.



I should close my position within 12 minutes.

The optimal strategy is

10 minutes order is needed as a safeguard.

However, I should close my position within 5 minutes.
