This scalping system is extremely flexible. We have tested only a fraction of possible variations. Due to its versatile nature, it can be applied both as a scalper and as a day trading forex system. During our test, we used it only as more conservative day trading strategy. Even though, it has brought some nice results with relatively low draw down.

Used tools and indicators
Moving average convergence divergence (MACD 250,500,9) The system uses histogram only to identify trend. It considers its position to the zero value line. All positions must be entered in confluence with trend (MACD). Signal line is omitted from calculation.
Stochastic (5,3,3) We haven't placed with stochastic period around much. Increase D and K value to limit sensitivity (higher period will lower the signal frequency and up its quality). This entirely depends on your goals. Anyway, always do the proper testing.
SAR parabolic trail stop (step 0,025, max 0,1). Trailing stop is placed on last closed SAR dot. Additional distance is preferably applied to widen the TS (30 pips in test).
Stop loss and take profit: EA includes this function. Use zero value for EA to use only trail stop in position closing.
