Timeframes Orion uses:
“Supposedly the 15 minute chart, but in reality I spend 90% of my time trading switching between the 5 minute, 1 minute, 15 minute and hour charts. I spend most of my time on the 5 minute charts when looking for positions, 1 minute for entries, exits, and scalping, 1hr for trend (thanks strat!), and the 15 minute for short term trend and SnR plotting..
Also I only trust candlestick patterns on the 15 and above
The main thing I’ve learned about time frames is that if you don’t see a clear picture of what’s going on: switch the time frame. One of them always has the secret. And I’ve found it’s usually the 5 minutes.”
