Effect of Time Frame on Trading Results in General Forex Discussion_xx
Which forex time frame trading is the best? This is relative and depends on the method of each trader. There are advantages and disadvantages of each forex Time Frame trading. Whatever your choice will be, the principle of Time Frame will always be the same: there are a number of things to watch out for when you use the Time Frame too low, including:
1. Too much noise
    If you compare a 5-minute trading chart with 1 hour, then at a lower Time Frame (5 minutes) you will see signals that appear to be valid, but fail to generate significant Failed Signals. Low Time Frame in this case is less than 1 hour. The reason is because there are many price movements that are less significant than the 1 hour time frame.

2. Difficulty Adjusting Daily Range Average and Stop Loss
    The market moves in a range that can be averaged every day. This average range will always change according to the conditions of market volatility, which can have a direct impact on open positions. Generally, changes in extreme volatility need to be anticipated with the best calculation of risk management, in order to avoid the risk of loss if there is an unexpected reversal. In this case, the problem that is often experienced by daily traders or Scalpers who usually use a low Time Frame is Stop Loss. If it is placed at a distance that is too tight, the possibility of a Stop Loss to be hit will be greater. It will be different if the Stop Loss level is in the range of a higher average time frame, as on the 4-Hours or Daily chart.

3. Low Time Frame Trading Forex Triggers Overtrading
      Regarding the noise mentioned in the first point, trading with a low time frame also tends to cause overtrading. Traders will tend to be tempted to enter when looking at trading signals that are popping up, although it is less likely to be able to generate adequate profits. Therefore, Scalping strategies are often not recommended for beginners, although they look simple and easy. Overtrading can be avoided by not moving too much Time Frame. If you have not been able to discipline and as long as you open up opportunities on every Time Frame with a trial and error basis, then you still need to learn again to make a Trading Plan.

Choosing timeframe will depending with style trading plan that used, if we had long term trading plan, hence will better to choose high timeframe as trigger analysis for long term, weekly and then look daily is good to analyze the major trend, but if we work as intraday trader hence H4 or H1 is already good timeframe to analyze and make decision, different more if using scalping trading, low timeframe like as M5 or M15 more preferable

I prefer to choose the time of the market session, by setting the H1 timeframe, and away from the noise in the transaction, because it can interfere with my concentration ..

very much agree brother, if you use a long term trading style you should use analysis in a large time frame for example from monthly, weekly and dayli, but for intraday time frames H4, H1 and M15 are entry points, looking for the best entries for intraday that say asering Do not pay attention to the suitability of the market form of the m15 time frame

Indeed, too much focus with many time frames will greatly affect our trading. We will get successive and large losses, because when we do not focus on one time frame we will be confused because our system will provide various signals from each time frame, so we cannot choose which one to take. So that we will be confused and eventually lose

actually about the use of the time frame depends on the trading style and character of each trader, but indeed for the low TF is identical to the trend that is still unclear or blurred because the small time frame is still easily influenced by various conditions such as news, technical and speculators.

Especially for scalpers, trading with a small TF is recommended to use a security in the form of a stop loss so that in the event of a less favorable condition can be anticipated immediately.

So, if in your opinion, what is the best TF we use for forex trading? I personally use TF H1 and H4 more often. But before executing on TF H1 and H4 I always analyze it first on a larger TF.

I often use daily time frames and time frames below, such as TF M30 to H4 to determine entry and TF daily points for confirmation because they tend to have more accurate trends.

If we trade based on time session, maybe will better to trade on London session and New York session because usually on both session having  good average movement, so opportunity to making a profit will high, in addition on time when both session time are met or in other hands London session overlapping to New York session, these time as busy time because so many bank around the world in operation

Scalping trading is short term trading plan, usually target scalping around 5 or 10 pips in every trades, maybe disadvantage trading scalping is needed higher concentration to the chart, missing  few minutes sometimes missing opportunity, except using scalping robot, only need to drive when robot can't work properly

The daily timeframe can be used to analyze the major trend, and then we can look to the lower timeframe to analyze small wave from the major trend, usually on the trending market will occurred counter wave as consolidation, we can look price bounce before entering from lower timeframe, for a swing trader, use daily timeframe already good enough

I usually like to use the H1 timeframe, because this timeframe is in the middle between M1 and yearly time frames. the usage for analysis will be slightly stable. not too fast and not too long. suitable for my daily trade

H1 timeframe can be used for the intraday trader, which we can analyze the trend market with this timeframe and also we can created plan trading based on this timeframe, if we having plan as intraday trader hence our target also need to adjusted to reasonable target based on daily average movement, if too large target will difficult to achieved
