Many traders have different trading systems.

My question to experienced traders, is:

What technical indicators do you rely on before entering a trade?

AND

What time frame do you trade? example: M1 M5 M15 M30 H1 H4 D1 W1 MN

Hi, rsi, stochastic, bollinger, entering M1, checking support and resistance on others, hope this help.

Thanks Alphasys.

I've been relying on bollinger bands to catch small trends, which has been good to me so far, but I wanted to know what other indicators I should use.

Hi Jacob, also i enter depending on the open or closing time of markets, as for example when a market is going bull, 10 minutes before closing people start to sell, so its a retracement, if its near a support, rsi and stochastic say enter i go for it if it goes with the daily price.
Pips for everyone!

I don't use any indicators at all. I just use support/resistance, candlesticks and patterns like double top, double bottoms, etc. That's all i need. No fancy indicators. For me they are useless.

Hi, I use simple ones like Stochastic and RSI for entry signalling... I'm more stringent when it comes to trend prediction, so I use Elliott Waves on H1 to D1 to make sure they all point towards the same direction 😁
StopLoss is friend, not foe...

KISS, S/R and 2 x SMA's, I trade any symbol and only use daily for signals.

I think if you look hard enough, you'll find patterns with every type of indicator or so called 'trading system'. Whatever makes you see those patterns, if you can profit from it, keep using it 😄.

I use no indicators. Just use candle sticks and Japanese traditional method 'Sakata'.

Combining Larry Williams Percent Range, False Break Buy/Sell Pattern, an 18-Period SMA, with tight money management is generating excellent results for me...so far!

The most popular (and I agree with it) - is moving. I know almost all indicators which are based on MA, but moving lines are the fastest
