Help with tick and second/minute chart reading

Postby arnie » 18 Jul 2009


I've always daytraded with minute charts (1 to 5 minutes) but now I'd like to study second and tick charts.

For the past months, I've been reading in this forum about 30 second charts and 100 tick charts, and it seems to me that there are some rules or maybe strategies, I don't know, associated with this type of charts.

Any words?

With this low time-frames you usually do scalping (e.g. having a profit target and stop loss of just a few pips). That being said; I trade a Neuronal Network Strategy on the 5 Seconds chart on the EURUSD through Interactive Brokers.
