    Default What is the best timeframe to use?

    Hi there.. i can say that i am an intraday trader. And i am only using the Free$25 given by the broker. What is the best timeframe for me. Yesterday i made it at 5,15 and 1hr timeframe. And i glance at 4h timeframe and seen a possible down for UJ but it eaten up my margin. When i look back at 1H timeframe it is telling the opposite trend. So now please tell me what is the best one to use for those who have limited margin and with what pair does a certain timeframe best works for.

    thanks..

    i think the best time to work when eurob & usa are open together from 12.00 to 21.00 as there are good moving in prices in this time

    i use 15,30 min TF to trade as the TF below 15 min not really clear and 1H TF is quite useful to see the trendline.

    According to my experiences I use 3 time frame:

    Daily - to see the trend
    4H + MACD - to confirm the trend
    30 M + Stoch - to give entry point.

    All of 3 TF should give the same signal before I put my entry point.

    i think if u use intraday trade, u should use minutes to analyze the market...
    but u have to see the 4 hours and 1 day chart, to make u have the right way...

    discipline what you need.
    actually each TF had its own value. and you cant just said this one is better or that one is aint.
    if you catch 2 TF is going the opposite direction, then don't trade.
    No OP is a position too.
    Sometimes i enter from big TF like 4H, and could be find the exit spot at 1m or 5m, or 15m.
    And sometimes i can enter from smaller TF, and seek the exit at bigger TF.
    This depends on each trader's style.
    Smaller TF is the blood of Bigger TF vein.

    youre right aow.. maybe i just lack discipline.. sometimes i do enter trade even if the signal is not yet confirmed hoping it to continue.. but i always failed on this kind of atittude... i think discipline is what i am going to practice at this time.. i am really having a hard time practicing it..

    If you just want to maximize $25, pls trade safely...get the valid signal before taking position.

    I use the 4H time frame because it fits my personality & strategy

    yeah its best to use timeframes that suits your personality and strategy. me myself also wants to use the 4h TF.. but for the free$25 alone i guess you should not use the 4h TF for $25 cannot support higher swings.. so i guess a trader should also know how touse shorter time frames.

    @dollar_earner ---> I agree. So far Im still working on my $25 bonus . When I get it, I will surely trade shorter time frames... probably scalping style first until I get enough profit to trade on a longer time frame.

    Default timeframes

    I have read a lot of material and the people who knows says that one must check the trend in higher timeframes, like 4hs and so on, and use the lower timeframes to the entry and exit. I am agree with that. You can take in consideration that this rules are from traders that trade with support and resistence.
    Thanks
