    time frame for intraday trading

    Hi guys,

    which time frame do you use for intraday trading?
    And what do you think, which pairs are the most predictable?

    Regards

    Re: time frame for intraday trading

    Correct!

    Constantly observe and trade 5M, optimize entries and exits at 1M

    Look at signals, especially long term support resistance or fibonacci, at every time frame, especially daily (for instance EURUSD was very close to 50% fibonacci level of 1.4194 these days -- staying below that level would confirm a downtrend, breaking over that level would be bullish, etc.)

    I don't use oscillators in 5M and 1M though, they are too noisy or useless at such short time frames.

    M1 is noise and useless for intraday trades, scalping however M1 is fine

    M5 could be used to optimal entries when trading intraday but if you want true intraday price action you need to be on M15. M15 is considered the intraday timeframe that the day traders will use, google INTRADAY TRADING TIME FRAME and you will see 90% of sites and traders agree M15 is intraday, anything less or higher is not.

    there are some good intraday threads on here with alot of peoples journals.

    You should look for trend on 1 H chart. Use 15M chart for entry

    i would agree with superdata, use the higher timeframe to look for the trend and enter of M15 if you want intraday action, anything else is not considered intraday.

    Agreed. Higher timeframe for less false signal. But, at least monitoring 3 pairs because H1 is not produce signal everyday.

    Hello Janina21.

    you can use Alexandre Elder's Triple Screen method. You will follow 3 different graphical times as example the monthly, weekly and daily period. when the three are in the same trend you enter the operation for the shortest graphical time. Of course this is just a simple example, but it is only for you to understand the line of reasoning

    Every chart under 1H is considered an intra-day chart.
