Most popular time frames and entry signals

Post by chris8sirhc » Wed Jun 09, 2010 5:58 pm

Hello. I have a brief question.
What do you think are the top 3 time periods that people trade over?
ex (intraday, 3-6 days, monthly, 3-6 months???)
And within each time frame, what do you think are the top 5 entry signals that are used to initiate a trade?

The more responses I get the better. I would appreciate it if you could stack rank them as well. I'm doing a brief summary, and I will be roughly averaging out the responses given on this thread.

Thank you.

Hi Chris as you asked for my two cents (and this is all it worth)
Top 3 time frames
1) the life of the trade, entries and exits are matched in the same time frame
2) see above

top 5 entry signals
1) new high or new low
2) see above

Sorry to be difficult (its that kind of day for me today), but a lot depends on if you are a day trader, a value investor, a momentum investor, systematic, fundamental etc; etc;
Plus the general consensus seems to that managing a trade exits are more important than the entry.
The combinations of what you are asking is huge - hence trading blox can help
