I've been trying to day trade the ES with terrible results. I am using the hourly DMI and 15min stochastic to enter and exit trades and am finding myself frequently the victim of numerous head-fakes, causing me to overtrade. I"m thinking about switching to taking longer-term positions (i.e. 1-2 day holding period) and increasing my stop to 4 points, hoping I can avoid the whipsaws. Any traders here agree that moving to a longer time frame would be a good idea?
