Just wondering if any intraday traders out there are using 1, 3, 5, or 15-min candlestick patterns out there to make entries on a consistent and profitable basis. If so, what have you found to be the most reliable patterns for short-term trades? What other indicators do you find them to be most useful in conjunction with? My sense going over various posts here on ET is that most traders believe candlestick patterns are better used for longer (i.e. swing) trades than short-term quick scalps or daytrades. Is this correct? Personally, I trade intraday using candlestick charts to view stock price action BUT do not make my entries based on the patterns themselves. Instead I look at volume, pace, and SMAs in conjunction with simple support and resistance levels the stock has made during the day. I'm ALWAYS looking for ways to improve my trading and wonder if looking for candlestick patterns on a short-term basis is worth looking into. Mahalo.
