    hey guys, when you trade on your charts, what time interval are you guys using... 1min, 5min, 1hour, ect?

    i just curious what the most common timeframe used...
  2. All of em. But mainly the 1 minute.

    I’d say it is important know where the trend is going. In that case you have a bigger picture in 4H but do your business in 1M.
    I use 30M and 4H preferably

    seems like 1 min is most popular so far...
  6. Well I combine the 15 M with the 4H or 1D, also to see or try to detect any possible trends or patterns, hence the Shoulder-Head-Shoulder. Or some other.

    tick and volume charts

    - tick chart for trading (ie tactical picture) [1]

    - another tab with some longer timeframe -- 5, 15, 30 or whatever minutes zoomed as appropriate to give me a feel for s/r and the broader trends. (ie strategic picture)

    [1] Every now and then I suspect volume charts would be helpful instead of tick charts, but I can never figure out why.
