Default Trading Multiple Time Frames In Forex

What the heck is multiple time frame analysis?

Multi-time frame ana… WHAT?! Chill out young padawan, it ain’t as complicated as it sounds! You’re almost done with high school – now’s not the time to get senioritis, although you probably got that way back in Grade 12. Ha!

Multiple time frame analysis is simply the process of looking at the same pair and the same price, but on different time frames.

Remember, a pair exists on several time frames – the daily, the hourly, the 15-minute, heck, even the 1-minute!

This means that different forex traders can have their different opinions on how a pair is trading and both can be completely correct.

John may see that EUR/USD is on a downtrend on the 4-hour chart. However, Jane trades on the 5-minute chart and sees that the pair just ranging up and down. And they could both be correct!

As you can see, this poses a problem. Trades sometimes get confused when they look at the 4-hour, see that a sell signal, then they hop on the 1-hour and see price slowly moving up.

What are you supposed to do?

Stick with one time frame, take the signal and completely ignore the other time frame?

Flip a coin to decide whether you should buy or sell?

Luckily for you, we here at aren’t about to let you graduate without knowing how to use multiple time frame analysis to your advantage.

First, we’ll try to help you determine which time frame you should focus on. Each forex trader should trade a specific time frame that fits his or her own personality (more on this later).

Secondly, we’ll also teach you how to look at different time frames of the same currency pair to help you make better, more educated trading decisions.
