The scalping averager - profitable FOREX scalping strategy

How to manage stop loss if we are looking for profit of only couple of pips. Apparently big stop loss is counterproductive and tight stop loss ensures huge percentage of losing trades.

One of the solutions, is to ask only for what you are willing to give. Stop loss equal to take profit (as in Zero – the best forex scalping strategy).

It is also possible, to discard stop loss completely. But then what to do with small percentage of positions that will never move in profit ? Is such a a strategy doomed from beggining ?
