Poll result: Favorite chart size

Below are the poll results for "Favorite Chart", which is now closed:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

I really found this poll interesting. I know it couldn't encompass everyone's desired answer, but I was shocked to find the overwhelming majority selected such a small time frame -- 233 tick.

I want to hear from you! Post your comment and let me know why you choose the time frame you did, and what other chart time frames you look at when making your decision. Personally, I tend to trade off a 5 range or 6 range chart, looking to a 5 minute chart for confirmation.

There is a new poll up, please cast your votes! The new poll asks you to select the closest risk/reward ratio that you trade with. For instance, 1:1 ratio means you risk 1 dollar for each dollar you win, say for example a 8 tick stop for an 8 tick target. A 2:1 ratio would mean you risk twice as much (16 tick stop, 8 tick target, for instance). Let me know!


Mike

Do you think that this has changed with the way the CME does ticks now. I used a 233 put now use a 500, and still look at the 233 old habits I guess.

I usea a 5 or 6 range chart for shor term trading, but I think a 5 minute and a 60 minute chart help provinding a clearer picture of the overall trend....I hate tick charts, very fast for my trading style...ST

I'm comfortable seeing at least 3 or 4 days with ON on the chart at a glance so no tick charts here

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I now trade an 800 tick chart using only 21 EMA, hand drawn SnR lines and hand drawn trend channels. R:R 1:1
