A good setup for scalping MES


New member
Hi guys. After trading a small options account for two months, I've proven to myself that I can finally stop losing money. After two months of trial and error, my account balance is slightly above the initial balance. I'm happy with that considering I've blown accounts this size repeatedly in the past. This time was different (Thank you ORB Study and SwingArm)

I was curious about MES for a while. I began to paper trade it and now finally looking into getting my feet wet. If there are any experienced futures traders or scalpers here, would you mind sharing the best set of indicators/setup that I can add to my chart ?

My go to setups are always old school; draw triangle formations, look for range breaks, and watch for support and resistance at high volume price levels.
Otherwise, any input is appreciated.
