What Time Frame Should I Trade?

One of the reasons newbie forex traders don’t do as well as they should is because they’re usually trading the wrong time frame for their personality.

New forex traders will want to get rich quick so they’ll start trading small time frames like the 1-minute or 5-minute charts. Then they end up getting frustrated when they trade because the time frame doesn’t fit their personality.

 

Know which time frame you should trade on as a forex trader.
For some forex traders, they feel most comfortable trading the 1-hour charts.

 

This time frame is longer, but not too long, and trade signals are fewer, but not too few. Trading on this time frame helps give more time to analyze the market and not feel so rushed.

 

Sleepy Forex Trader
On the other hand, we have a friend who could never, ever, trade in a 1-hour time frame.

 

It would be way too slow for him and he’d probably think he was going to rot and die before he could get in a trade. He prefers trading a 10-minute chart. It still gives him enough time (but not too much) to make decisions based on his trading plan.

Another buddy of ours can’t figure out how forex traders trade on a 1-hour chart because he thinks it’s too fast! He trades only daily, weekly, and monthly charts.

Okay, so you’re probably asking what the right time frame is for you.

Well buddy, if you had been paying attention, it depends on your personality. You have to feel comfortable with the time frame you’re trading in.

You’ll always feel some kind of pressure or sense of frustration when you’re in a trade because real money is involved. That’s natural.

But you shouldn’t feel that the reason for the pressure is because things are happening so fast that you find it difficult to make decisions or so slowly that you get frustrated.

When we first started trading, we couldn’t stick to a time frame.

We started with the 15-minute chart.

Then the 5-minute chart.

Then we tried the 1-hour chart, the daily chart, and the 4-hour chart.

This is natural for all new forex traders until you find your comfort zone and why we suggest that you DEMO trade using different time frames to see which fits your personality the best.

我该用什么时间的框架来交易?

       “菜鸟级”的交易者们,之所以交易的不太理性,其中一个主要的原因是,他们通常使用着,不适合他们自己性格的时间框架,来进行交易。

       交易新手们由于想要迅速致富,因此他们一般会使用,较小的时间框架来进行交易,例如1分钟或者5分钟的框架图表。之后他们往往会对自己交易的结果,感到失望和挫折,因为他们选择了根本不符合自己个性的时间框架来交易。

                          

       对于一些交易者来说,他们使用1小时框架图表来交易,会觉得很舒适。

       这个时间框架是比较长,但也不是太长,交易的信号比较少,但也不会太少。在这个时间框架上进行交易,会让交易者有更多的时间,去分析市场的信息,并且不会感觉很匆忙。

                                    
       然而在另一边,我们有些朋友虽然曾用过1小时框架,但应该再也不可能使用1小时的框架来进行交易。

       这种框架对于这一些人来说,太过于缓慢,以至于让他们觉得,在获得一个交易讯号之前,自己已经等待得腐烂到快死去了。他们更偏向于使用10分钟的图表。这虽然也可以给予了他足够的时间(但不会太长),根据自己的交易计划来思考决策。

       我们另一些的伙伴,却想不出那些交易者们,是如何在1小时的图表上做交易的,他们觉得节奏太快了!他们只在日、周、和月的图表上进行交易。

       好吧,这下你可能要问,最适合你的,是哪种时间的框架了。

       好伙伴,如果你真的认真看了上面这些,应该已经知道,这完全取决于你自己的个性。你必须对你交易时,使用的时间框架,感到舒适。

       当你在使用真金白银进行交易时,自己总会觉得有某种压力或挫折感,这是正常的事。

       但你的压力不应该来至,因为一切发生得太快,导致你难以做出决定;或是一切进行得太慢,而令你感到沮丧。

       当我们首次进行交易的时候,我们不能死坚持着某个时间的框架。

       我们先由15分钟图表开始。

       然后试看5分钟图表。

       跟着尝试1小时图表、日图表,和4小时图表等。

       这对所有的交易新手来说,是正常的事。直到你找到,适合自己的时间框架。这就是为什么,我们建议您在不同的时间框架,使用 模拟 的交易,去发现哪一个框架最适合你自己。
