I find that using multiple timeframes for daytrading confuses me as I begin to doubt small trends conflicting with big trends and vice versa. For instance, a strong trend develops on the 5 minute chart and I notice another trend on the 60 minute chart is approaching what I consider to be resistance. Not to mention the times price just decides to sit under it trying to break it for hours. Well, sometimes, the 60 minute chart holds it, other times it passes by like thin air, so I asked myself, why bother with multiple timeframes if the support and resistance study that I gather from the other charts might or might not hold. After this I decided to just trade one timeframe, started with the 5 minute, but truth be told, most of the time is just too noisy and the trends don't last, it's constantly chopping, which is absolutely a killer for my style of trading, which is trend following. After this I switched to the 60 minute, and well, trends on the 60 minute can encompass so much space, they could be uptrending and a particular day price is downtrending inside of it! I think you know where I'm going with this, this trading stuff is not easy! I'm trying to keep it simple but without leaving the boundaries of daytrading which is the style I prefer. Got to ask, which timeframes do you guys use for daytrading and how do you determine exits ? If you only use one chart which and why. If you use multiple, please state how. Seriously need some guidance on this. Thank you for your help!
