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.
