    I'm interested in figuring the most popular time frames for day traders.

    What time frame chart do you use primarily for day trading?

    If you use more than one, please choose the one chart is that is most important for you.

    I figure that if we know which time frames are most popular, we can keep an eye on those charts as well.

    Please vote for your primary time frame, and perhaps add a short comment about how you use that time frame primarily, and how you might use any other secondary time frames.

    For me, I take my entry and exit setups off the 5 minute chart. I use the 30 and 60 minute charts for bigger picture support and resistance levels.
