Hey Gang, I'm beginning to practice day trading the micro e-mini futures. Anyone have a good suggestion as to which time frame would be the best to look at.

For me I usually look at 15m, hourly, and daily. Each trader have their own preference and choice. But we're often being recommended to look at all timeframes with hourly, daily, and weekly being the most critical. It also depend on how long you're looking to hold the stock or contract as well.

Im partial to the 2min, 5min and 15min, daily's but mainly trade off the 5min. I use an 8ma and 49 ma for crosses and vwap returns so the 2min is great for scalps, a quick in and with the ma crosses.
