Reply To: Discuss How To Use Charts For Day Trading

Christian Harris

    What do you mean by ‘type’ of chart?

    Do you mean, for example, candlestick or Heikin-Ashi etc? Or are you referring to time frames?

    Most day traders use candlestick charts in a 1- to 15-minute time frame to catch intraday swings and confirm trends in shorter timeframes.

    Swing traders typically use higher time frames.

    Or did you mean something else?
