5 and 10 min TF is best for Intraday…
Price action is worthless without supply and demand zone…
If ur having confusion with trend identification then use heikinashi…

Trade with trend…


If you’re mostly into intraday, have your charts set to 3 minute, 5 minute and 15 minute. If you’re into swing, go for Hourly, Daily & Weekly Charts.

Search for ORB - and you can trade breakouts if that is your style.

But if you’re into intraday, focus on Pivots / Central Pivot Range, using Fib / Camarilla.

May your longs go up & your shorts go down!

i generally use the Multi-timeframe function available on @Streak to find trends stronger in both smaller and largertime frames.

thank you soo much bro


thank you all for your valuable advices :smile:


I like to check on 1 day time frames as it gives me more accurate reading on the stocks. So for intraday it is better that you stick to one trend for particular stock and don’t change it in between the day.

yeah, exactly trend doesn’t change on a dime !!! Also it takes a while for trend to form and reverse.

i dont get it bro…can u please explain a little
