Scalping

I have an EA that I run on H1.

I have looked at shortening the time frame so I ran some back tests on M1 - the results were strong.

However on a forward test the brokers commission drained the performance as the dollar value of the commission is 4 times the lot size in dollars.

This seems to be a drawback with scalping unless there are brokers who take more on the slippage and less on the lot size.

So the question is which brokers are most suitable for scalping - and how do their commissions work ???

I'm interested in that, too.
