I've watched and read all sorts and I don't think you will get a meaningful answer to this question. I have seen the 5 and 30 minute time frames used a lot for reference but after that there it seems that there are lots of people who use all of the time frames.

Personally, I think it is all about price action. I use a number of charts to get a sense of what is happening but ultimately just watch the price and wait for it to do what I want.

I have some trading buddies who trade based upon candlesticks closing in certain time frames. I think they miss trades as a result. Also, since the start and end of any given candlestick is arbitrary I don't think it matters.

Finally, you may hear opinions that if enough people are trading a given time frame then watching them might help. If you watch volumes and trading patterns on a number of charts (1, 5, 15, 30 minutes) you may see something that works for you, which in the end is what it's all about.

Find something that is comfortable for you and log thousands of hours of screen time with it
to see how Price Action behaves around your chosen time frames and support and resistance.

Generally speaking I think time based charts are used more than tick charts.....I use both, it depends on what your trading and what your style is.

You just have to try "all of the above" and see what suits you best....there is no right or wrong answer really.

I use a Kase bar on TF, Euro, and ES ..as well as tick charts for the same.

Like I said you just have to try them and see how they feel to you.

Renko is real good at letting you see congestion and s/r very easily. I like using those in conjunction with other charts but it really is your preference.
