How I Trade Using Multiple Timeframes

Confluence on Three Time Frames Indicates Solid Short Set-Up

One of the topics I will be addressing in an upcoming segment of my ongoing FX Tutorials is combining multiple time frames looking for 'confluence' areas where the technical picture becomes very clear.
The charts below of CHF/JPY outline a very basic, yet effective, example of several resistance an support areas coming together at the same time that may well result in a solid short




Key Points:
- the 60-min chart finds resistance at a low from back on April 30th
- the 240-min chart has fib resistance at roughly the same area, 91.35
- the daily chart has failed at trend-line resistance and is now set to push below bull trend-lines (yellow highlighted area)
- momentum, as defined by the stochastics is bearish, although the 240-min chart exhibits a bit of upside price pressure
As always, feel free to send me your comments and questions

When you see differnet time frames it seems easy for you to find trend. confirmation is done as I see 4 hr , 1 hr and 30min charts. if trend is same on all time frames you can do trading with confident. For short term trading mostly depend on short time frames and for long term I have to see long time frames.

With multiple time frames you can confirm the market movement .It will make you more confident when trend on al time frames is almost same . You can see if there is a difference ,A trader can adopt trading strategy or style accordingly . I also see low and higher time frames before enter in forex market to open any positions.

It's very recommended to trade using multiple timeframe. Only using single timeframe is not recommended strategy.
You must use at least 3 time frame or more. The biggest TF for decide where the market/trend going on..
The lowest one is for entering the market..

I think we got to be good with practicing in order to work out in multiple timeframes; I usually stick to just daily charts because I feel it filters out any fake movements. I am fairly lucky that I work with OctaFX broker since they have incredible cTrader platform, it’s highly upgraded in terms of technology while there are advance charting system as well, so that really works nicely for me and brings solid rewards for me and helps me succeed.
