    What time frame for daytading the eminis is most popular? What chart are most traders looking at?
  2. Depends on your trading style. Some scalpers trade on 1 min charts for quick hits. 3 and 5 min very popular for candles and trend analysis. Position traders usually use a longer 30min and daily charts. My style uses 3 min and less. Large enough for trend analysis and candle reading. Short enough to limit loses.
