Trading Using Many Time Frames in Forex Education_xx
the use of a large time frame is only to see opportunities, a small time frame used for order entries, and a big tf for trends.

This time frame in my opinion is indeed mandatory compared to technical indicators because the time frame is the point of view of our observations of prices in certain time units according to our trading style.

just use the ideal 2-3 time trading frame, don't use all the time frames later, a little signal is captured.

I actually use 1 Time frame often but sometimes 2 if conditions are less certain.

trading using multiple time frames does not hurt as long as you do not violate the rules of use.

provided that you do not use a low time frame combined with the highest time frame because it will not synchronize.

Trading Using Many Time Frames in Forex Education_xx
Many professional forex traders use extensive methods which include the use of many timeframes, and I also trust this system. To trade with many timeframes, traders must first look at the timeframe in the long run, such as the monthly or weekly chart to find out trends in general. This is actually quite easy; if the trend generally goes up, then you have to open a buy position, whereas if the trend generally goes down, then put short positions.
 

Next is to look at a shorter timeframe, like in the H4 or H1 chart to look for trading opportunities. As I stated above, if the trend generally goes up, then you have to open a buy position; but this does not necessarily mean that you may not open sell positions at all. There will always be an opportunity for movement against the trend that will open up opportunities for you to trade. For example, when there is a strong uptrend, then a minor retracement down can be a potential trading opportunity. Finally, look for a lower timeframe, such as 15M chart to ensure the correct entry point.



Because I am a day trader, I don't monitor the daily chart, and instead use H4 and H1 charts to look at trends in general. Then, I will look at the M15 and M5 charts to see if there is a trading opportunity that appears. Of course, this can vary, it all depends on how long you want to hold the trade.


The thing that makes trading with many timeframes powerful is its ability to put traders on the right side of the market, as well as to show available entry opportunities. In one of my favorite books by Dr. Alexander Elder, he explained about the "Triple Screen" method used in the use of many timeframes, complete with details.

In Come Into My Trading Room: A Complete Guide to Trading, Elder said:

"Triple Screen resolves contradictions between indicators and timeframes. Reaches strategic decisions on long-term charts, uses trend-following indicators - this is the first screen. Then continues to make tactical decisions about entries and exits on intermediate charts, using oscillators - this is the second screen. Then provide several methods for placing buy and sell orders - this is the third screen, which we can apply using the intermediate chart or short-term chart. "

"It starts from choosing your favorite timeframe, which is the chart you like to use, and call it 'intermediate. Then multiply the five terms to find your long-term timeframe. Apply the trend-following indicator on the chart to reach a strategic decision to open long, short, or step aside from the market. Get out of the market (not open trading) is also one of the positions that can be taken. If the long-term chart displays bullish or bearish, go back to the intermedate chart and use the oscillator to find entry and exit points in the same direction as indicated by the long-term trend. Put the profit target and stop loss before switching to the short-term chart, if any, to improve the quality of entries and exits. "


Let me give an example. To trade with this strategy, traders will start with their favorite timeframe, say H4 chart, and call it "intermediate". To find the long-term chart at what timeframe, multiply by five (or 4, or 6). Thus, the long-term chart can be a daily chart (H4 chart x 5 = H20, H20 is closely related to the daily chart / D1). Whereas to get the short-term chart, the intermediate chart must be divided 4-6. So, the short-term chart in this example can be an H1 chart (H4 chart รท 4 = H1 chart).


Long-term charts should be the first screen where you can focus on trends and use indicators such as Moving Averages, MACD, or trendlines to decide whether you will open a buy or sell position, or not trade because the market is not trending. The intermediate chart is the second screen that can be applied to Stochastics or RSI to identify the pullback entry zone. Finally, on the short-term chart, or the third screen, you are looking for breakout support / resistance that is in accordance with the direction indicated by the long-term trend to guide the trading entry.


This triple screen strategy is really good. I always do it; check the higher timeframe first before opening a trading position at a lower timeframe. Forex trading with just one timeframe is like blind trading; You will not know what happened to a larger condition.
Your tips are very useful, sir. I will try it on my trading account.

the use of many timeframes functions as a comparison only between TF and other TF systems like this so you can see which is the best chance

trading multi time frame will provide a broader view in observing trends and prices, but its weakness can make it difficult for us to find an accurate intersection of signals for entry.

if I often use a small time frame because I am a scalper, I usually use TF m15 most often.
