I have been day trading es for a while but I have noticed the 5 min chart plays on my human psychology... curious if anyone day trades off of say the 30 min chart or 1 hour chart... will be switching from 5 min to 30 min starting tomorrow

I trade ES using the 5 minute chart as well. Have played with 15 minute chart before but usually drift back to 5. I do look at 30, 60, and daily throughout sessions just for an aerial view.

Here are my 6 month results scalping es I was wondering just because I seriously have a hard time letting winners run and was curious if I should work on that or just try and improve as a scalper

I try to solely look at the 5 min also but sometimes I feel like I am missing the Forrest through the trees

5 min is good for trending. For trading ranges I'll do 60 min chart.

You can look at multiple time frames for perspective and use smaller time frame for entry and exits. Allow room for head fakes.

after looking at your 6 months results.....not exactly sure what your complaining about.....profit factor of 2.43 after 3100 Trades....thats pretty good right there.....I would just keep doing what your doing.....I see you have a problem going short....maybe you could work on that....you did say scalp....that doesnt mean swing....we scalpers love to make profit....looks like you are doing fine....
