    I like pullback. It helps give a springboard to higher levels. . --Once again looking to overcome the resistance at 2349.50.

    If your entry/exit chart is the 5 minute chart, never look at the 1 min. --If your entry/exit chart is the 15 min chart, never look at the 5 min chart. --If your entry/exit chart is the weekly chart, never look at the daily.

    It is not essential to look at extremely short term frames like the 1 and the 5 to day trade. You can see what they are doing when you look at longer frames. Looking at the 1 and the 5 will have you in too many trades and more likely, bad trades.

    It's all a matter of how often you want to enter a trade.

    True. My better trades come from larger volume based charts. smaller volume can have you flip and reversing all over the place. trying to catch the runner.

    In addition, it's real easy to forget or mistake context when looking at the small charts.
