Topic: Longer Time Frame
I've always use either 1min or 5 min charts because I've the idea (which I'm now checking whether I made the right assumption), that if I use smaller time chart, then I can use more Longer Time Frame options.
Eg. If I use a 1min time chart for my strategies, then I can employ 5min, 15min, 30min, 1hr, 4hr, D1 etc in my opening and closing conditions (since these time frame are Longer, not shorter).
So if my assumption is correct, am I right to say then, if I use 4hr time chart, I can only use D1 as my Longer
Time frame and I can't use those time frame smaller than my 4hr time chart?
I have been wanting to use 4hrs time chart but I needed the EA to check all other time chart before executing
a trade but since I assumed that if I use 4hrs time chart, I only ended up with D1 as my only option for Longer time frame, that would limit the purpose of Longer Time Frame features.
I do hope I can use all other "shorter" and Longer time frame so that I can use a 4hr time chart and add in 1min, 5min, 30min etc "shorter' time frame conditions in my strategies because as what Dave (BlaiserBoy) said, 4hr is a much profitable chart to use (but in my option, it is also "laggy" didn't respond fast enough cos by the time the price kicked into action, my EA is not fast enough to respond on a 4hr time chart). Unless anyone has any advice to overcome that.
That's why I ended up with 1min or 5min time chart but limited by data history because it only has about 1.5 months of data history for back testing. I believe I'm missing the knowledge to overcome this problem, hence would appreciate for some tutorial on these above issues.
Thanks in advance for all the helpful FSB Pro helpers out there
