Which way is more accurate/better to trade stocks and ETFs with ?

  1. I use QuoteTrackera with IQFeed subscription.. my layout consists of 3 charts.

    A. 144 tick chart
    B. 5 Minute Chart linked to A

    C. 5 Minute chart of DJI

    I day trade mostly, but my focus is whether I should be using the tick chart for stocks for entries or if I should be using a minute chart for entries ?

    For example I would look @ my 5 Minute chart of POT for example..see a good setup forming, then I look @ my 144 tick chart to get a good entry point.. the thing is sometimes the ticks swing by soo far i cant even react properly although the Price Action does seem to be a bit quicker than minute charts.

    What do you guys suggest?
  2. Why not a 139 tick chart?
