I started this thread to formalize the various ways daytraders determine the trend. Many of the methods described in ET start with determining the trend. Many also correctly advise to start with a higher time frame and trade within a lower timeframe. 1) So what are the highest time frames you use to determine your entries as daytrader? Multiyear to year to month to week to day to hour to minute? 2) And how many of your S/R lines and HH and HL (or vice-versa) on your chosen daytrading chart are carried over from your multiple larger time-frame charts?
