favorite timeframe for intraday / taking entry point against MA

Just wondering if what's the favorite time frame you guys are using for your intraday trading ? ES, CL,

I am currently using 1,2,5,15 min,

Specifically 2 min for entry, 1 and 2 min for exit, 5 and 15 min for general trend direction.

I remember big mike in 1 of his trading videos once talked about he would NOT take long entry below moving average and vice versa. can't remember if it was 5 min chart?(Price Action on CL (Crude Oil Futures) Tue Apr 20th)

From my experience in trading Hang Seng futures intraday, forward testing results indicate that (especially within 1 hour after the OPEN)

Pros:
you would save a lot of money taking entry at premature reversal levels

Cons:
your entry would be a little late, and unlikely to catch those perfect reversed breakouts signals generated at slow stc levels ie 20/80

net net which one is better I don't know. Mike, can you share your view on this ?(no longs below your 20EMA / vice versa)
How did you end up having this conclusion of not taking counter-trend entry points ?

many thanks...

I believe @Fat Tails has covered this quite extensively already:

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
