    I know people have their own preference of charts(Time, Volume, Tick etc).

    Just want to know which is the most popular day-trading chart that traders generally use for stocks and futures. 1min, 5min, 15min, tick or any other one. What do you think is the widely used one.

    Thanks for any reply.

    Basically I am not interested in what type of chart you are using(your preference).

    I am just curious which is the most widely used day-trading chart.

    Thanks.
     
  6. I would imagine a 5 minute candlestick chart...
     
  7. There was a poll about this once at ET.

    I think the 1min and 5min candlestick charts were the most popular.

    Too bad ET doesn't maintain a list of all the polls done here.
