Trading in lower timeframes require more expertise. In lower timeframes market is more volatile. New traders should trade on higher timeframe. Once you are accustomed to higher timeframe, you can come to lower timeframe.

Yes I agree with you. In lower time frame there is more noise and traffic. That's why price move forward and backward. That's why people do over trading and open lot of unnecessary trades. It also leads them to bad habits.

Lower timeframe is essential to get more accurate information about price action. However, timeframe depend on trading strategy.

Sometimes it all depends on experience, and sometimes it all depends on the specific situation, because you can see the perspective where no one sees it...

I agree with you. It is all about how well you understand the market.

With practice, you begin to understand it as if intuitively.
You understand more or less exactly when to 'fight', and when to take a step back.
And when you get to this stage, you realize that you're moving in the right direction.

Both are useful to trader. Lower timeframe means more volatile, useful if you are experienced scalper.

I disagree. Trading lower time frames like a 1 minute chart, there ton's of trends that on higher time frames are not there. A higher time frame could be range bound, but a 1 minute chart, there is trends galore. The problem traders have is they use market orders to enter. This is a huge mistake! Always use entry stop orders to enter. If you have a stop order to buy, and the market go's down, your trade never gets filled and you don't lose money. Trail a buy entry stop order above declining prices, and in time the market will reverse and move higher, your buy stop will be filled and will show a profit within a few minutes if trading on 1 minute charts.

Lower time frames are specifically used for short term trades like intra day trading, scalping etc. Lower time frames generally help you to confirm the on going trend that you observe in higher time frames. Along with it, you a trader uses them to ascertain their entry and exit points.
The more your practice, the more you learn.

Selecting a timeframe is of great importance. And this must be understood when choosing a strategy or approach.
But even if you choose something like this, it's worth it to you to
- try it out on a demo
- analyze results
- make a final decision.

I think lower time frames consist of maximum unexpected market shifts. Lower time frames are not quite helpful for understanding the overall trend and market flow as a result traders might get wrong ideas about the market situation.

Yes, the volatility is something every trader has to deal with when trading in lower timeframes. It requires good skills and expertise, as you pointed out.

Medium-term timeframes usually choose scales from several hours to a daily segment. There are numerous strategies for daily timeframes and therefore you can always make a profit here

You are right. Day traders often use hourly time frames like H1. H4, H12 etc.

Low timeframes is like a movie, fast forwarded exponentially. I think these low time frames are great for scalpers overall because they can provide you with tons of trading opportunities but not for the long term strategies.

I think lower time frames have a great chance of making wrong decisions for newbies. Things are moving so fast that there is a very less chance for error. If you are entering the lower timeframe then make sure you should invest in a small amount because within that 15 minutes all of the action is happening.

@Darrensmith Use the automated trading scripts which are the best for scalpers and day traders alike. No doubt the risk is higher and decision making can be prone to errors but plan for the next 15 minutes by making an automated trade during the current time. For example to be more clear I was using Acttrader from XTB broker for my trades but in lower time frames you need to write your own trading script. So I use the MT4 platform (find the C language easier) from the broker Fxview and use the position trading strategy, where I determine my entry for the trade using the long term and short term timeframes. So automatically my entry point for the trade is predefined for the lower range of the timeframe.
