Would you say that 1h time frame is too short? I thougt that would be considered a longer time frame. I thought that M15 or M5 were short and 1H and above were generally considered the longer time frames
Well, H1 is very fine because you can see clearly what did happen in previous sessions. ( American and Asian )
Ranges are very clear and also you can check Daily patterns on H1.
I use smaller timeframe for trigger.
But if you are a new trader, a strongly suggest you to avoid Time frame < M15
There is too much noise and the spread will kill you.
I don't use H4 at all.
