The less the better.

Indicators are fine as long as they have been thoroughly tested and been proven profitable.

I only have candlestick chart ( mostly between 5 minute and 1 minute) and 21 EMA, no volume.
Sometimes use tick based charts.

None. Price action and S/R tells it all.

As few as possible but not fewer than necessary.

I trade the RTY. I plot S/R lines and trade only when the NYSE tick hits extremes near these lines.

When I trade the ES, I use a 21EMA. I trade with the trend at or near the EMA.

Since most indicators are reactive and thus lagging to price action why bother? Indicators won't give you an edge only more reasons to hesitate to take the trade. Made far too important by many imho.

My setup has gotten simpler nowadays. Using Stochastics osc., vwap and opening range.. Price above vwap and stochastics in buy mode then wait for the price to sustain OR high and go long. Price below vwap and stochastics osc., in sell mode wait price to sustain below OR low and go short. That's all.

What timeframe do you display your charts - 5 mins?

I use the hourly to determine S / R levels and 5 min to decide when and how to enter the market
