    Tick charts ease out volatility, so if your strategy gets disturbed by volatility changes...then tick charts is the better way to go...

  2. i think that small timeframe like 1 minute concluded too small opinion about situation on the market. And my shortterm system trade well only on 30 minute. If you use small timeframe grafs you will get a small average winning trade to which will powerfully affect a costs.

  3. Yes true.
    Short term systems have higher win % and lower (average win/average loss) than longer term systems.

    But the advantages of a short term system is less market exposure and INCREASED trade frequency. The latter is where the appeal is.

  4. I don not think that it a advantage. A trade frequency is not good for a system. I mean that the number of trades must be an actual value for each timeframe.
