I've been daytrading futures now for about 3 months and there seems to be one major problem. I can recognize patterns, but there does not seem to exist often enough, a pattern with a 3 to 1 win/loss. The stops seem to be too wide and they seldom move 3 times these wide stops. So, I've been going to a 1m time frame to find tighter stops and, of course now I'm stopped out all of the time because the stop is toooooo tight and then the pattern takes off back into a favorable direction. I'll post some charts in a short while, I just wanted to see if anyone was interested in this thought or had some charts to post to show me the light.
