    Okay. Scalp is a method of trading or technique of trading where you are trying to make few pips in such as short times. Usually scalp used more than one pair to achieve bigger or desirable profits. While swing could be using more than one pair but usually use one position only. In swing traders hold their positions, more than one days and usually up to 5 days depend on the traders, some of them even hold more than that to targetting higher pips. In short, scalp is short term swing is long term.

    one of the downside of scalping in any market not just forex,is a lack of scalability.Scalping system and trader who scalp can't continue to increase their trade size linearly as their account size or assets under management grow and while scalping will affect the overall profitability of system.

    for the beginner, scalping may be more interesting, and creative in developing early career .. as I know, most beginners really like spending time with forex. but for the senior trader, we simply trading with swings, resulting in a profit can still be good.

    you are right but one thing about swing trading is that one can do multiple entry and exit,meaning one can open more than one position on one pair and short term trading can also be done when swing trading the market.

    Advantages of scalp is smaller risk which means smaller profit too compared to swing where we hold position for longer time. When we open a position the longer it we hold the more risk exposed for us. so that is swing and scalp, but swing has better and relaxed feeling as far as i experienced.

    Actually scalping is more of the short term trading method in which we are opening our position when the market is volatile and swing is a long term trading method and swing is more profitable.

    I really don't know why some traders would want to believe that scalping is less profitable. Well depends on the trader has scalper trader are those who trade during VOLATILE session and they have more chances of making more profits.
