I can only offer my opinion, which is not necessarily fact.

I believe that the best than you can hope for in trading is a relatively small edge. With small TP and tight stops, it is extremely unlikely that the edge will be enough to compensate for spread/commission.

Martingale can give consistant small profits, but those small profits are always wiped out (and more) by a large loss.

Automated scalping is a dream, without market making software/knowledge.
