All time frimes are important for all types of trading. One must learn to manage all time frames.

Hi alexforex007,
What do you mean by 'manage'? On what TF you're working, are you day trader? What 's your opinion about 'low timeframes (under H1) gives more false signals'?

Hey all,

Highlighting another example of the power of the Larger Time Frames. This week, the CAD CHF decline completed the formation of the Consolidations setup that was predicted.....3 Months Ago...


In September this year, this was the forecast Pennant Consolidation on the Daily Chart. This was based on the types of Candlestick waves that had already taken place...















...and the rally and decline that completed the Pennant...








Even if you swear by the Lower Time Frames, you HAVE to use the HTFs to spot the start of major moves that you can then trade on your LTF..

Four pages of complete bollucks!

It's horses for courses and there are advantages and disadvantages in both but there is one thing for sure, trading successfully, profitably and most importantly, consistently, will be the hardest thing you've ever done in your life and it will take 2-5 years to get it right and that's if you survive that long. If you do survive that long and have put in the effort and screen time then you'll either have built your own system or perfected something you've found, bought or come across and made it work. The argument is moot, time frames are irrelevant, it's all down to the individual and what floats their boat.

It's the same with all these maestros that think you need all these hundreds of pips, more bollucks. Compound 20 pips a day with 60%-70% winning days over 18 months and then tell me you need 500 pips a week and as far as subscriptions are concerned, I run like hell in the opposite direction. If you can trade, you do, if you can't, you teach!

I, personally, have found that the most reliable trading signals usually come from the 4-hour and daily time-frame, if you're planning on opening a more long-term position.The 15 and 30-minute time-frames also provide very decent signals for short-term positions.

I am working on weekly TF trend following. I find it with proper trading size management it is the safest way to go and weekly trend is definitely the most reliable.

Hey all, latest trade got 149 Pips from EURO USD










This was the overall setup on the Daily Chart...











Entry took place on the 4 Hour Chart










After few days, target hit...












This trade shows how we can get larger Pip Gains from focusing on the Larger Charts, trading Stronger and more Reliable Signals.


The 4 Hour Chart offers strong Stop Loss placements so that we can stay away from temporary pullbacks.


With the smaller time frames, using smaller Stop Losses can easily cause us to be stopped out by these pullbacks, causing us to miss out on profitable trades.

I'm still figuring this out myself, but I find that the lower TF are essential to comprehensively backtest EA's. I have found so far that I seem to achieve a better average profit:drawdown ratio (better entries) on higher timeframes.

In my opinion the 4-hour and daily time frames give the most reliable long-term signals, especially when it comes to reversals and the like. If one isn't as patient to wait for those, the 15-minute and the 30-minute time-frame can be used, I think, for relatively reliable short-term signals.

It all depends on your strategy. Some strategies use the longer time frames, others - the shorter ones. For example, if you're scalping you won't be using the daily time frame.
