How many Charts do you look at to determine to make a trade or not?

I look at many set of charts front 100 ticks till 100k ticks.. My trades depend on trend setups and where they are forming.. Generally I look at anywhere from 100 till 4k for setups and trade off them anything higher is just for watching.

Idea , Exploration , Execution.


Over past few months i have worked with many traders, Some great other very talented and few just don't get it.
Rules and everything is important in trading but not enough, i know a trader who follows all the rules so rigidly that he has left no room for markets to take a breather he doesn't have an idea what to do if that set of rules don't work. The reason i state this here is an Idea is most powerful thing you can have in trading. Everyone have got there rules and system and most of them know what the hard stats are but still many find it difficult to convert in live trading sessions they just cant match the back test results .. that's because they don't have an idea what to do when they rules or the 1st trade don't work they don't have a backup. See you need to have an plan an idea of what market is communicating with you what your primary trade setups are going to be and what your secondary setups will be if primary fails .. You then need to explore those ideas with raw data from the market and then finally you need to execute them. Trading is all about probabilities but those stats are based on a system and that came from and idea a thought. Ppl are trying so hard to become profitable that they forget at the end it all about probabilities and that stats are based on ideas. Try it for a few weeks and see what difference it makes to your trading it will convert you completely from some one who is complaining why always me .. you will become yea i know whats going to happen next and you will act on it ..

There is a reason why all major hedge funds or prop groups ask you to write down your plan, there is a reason why all the big traders do what they do because they have an idea they know there pros and cons they know there rules but most imp they have an idea and they wait for the market to sync with that idea and then they act on it to make money ..

AN IDEA WILL CHANGE YOUR TRADING FOR GOOD.. TRY IT

2nd trade was short as posted on 4k chart which was similar to yesterdays trade just today it did not wanted to break down yet. Added on to that trade and exited for 36 ticks net.
3rd trade Reason for exit was support on mid charts 1k and so on and took a long of that market danced around and i got completely bored and hungry [dinner time] so quit for 6 ticks. and then it shooted upside [just waiting for me to go :@] Hehe Net profit for the day 40 ticks. .. anyways had fun . Hope you all had an excellent trading session as well ..

Still a chance

There is still an outside chance that this setup might work but it will need further confirmation , thats break of the swing low as marked in chart.
