A complicated topic

Those with the best of intentions may unintentionally mislead you here. I would proceed with caution even at a great forum such as (formerly BMT).
Price moves in fractals, so a pattern will show up in a 1 min chart before it does in a 5 min. If you are a price pattern trader, higher timeframes give a better feel for market structure and long term support and resistance. That alone is a good reason to have higher timeframe charts on during daytrading. Using samller timeframes charts for entries keeps stops tight and high timeframe perspective keeps you in the trade longer. As a result, you accomplish two critical ideas in trading...small stops and a longer target perspective.
The choice of timeframes depend on your capitization, trading style, instrument etc.. This is where the discussion gets tricky. I recommend internalizing one instrument and timeframe first. 30 min into 5 min into a smaller tick/ range for entries. The rest depends on your hardwork and developing your beliefs. No one else can help you here.
Good luck!

Time frames are just another tool on your belt. Just like moving averages, oscillators and other indicators. All of those items do one thing only - they provide a different way to "read" the market.

I think viewing the price action on different time frames can be implemented into any strategy with positive outcomes.

I use 1 Minute and 4 Range charts to look for a good place to enter a momentum. Once the position is profitable, I watch a 10 Range chart to get an idea of where I should consider taking profit.

For me, the benefits of using multiple time frames are clear and simple, I get better entries and exits.
