Mapping the trend

Some time, we find all the right signs for a  trade but we get stopped out. Why? The answer can lie in the use of higher time frames. Just increase your time frame. If you are trading in 60 min chart then have a look at the EOD (daily) chart.

If a stock is trading in a range in EOD chart then it will become more difficult to maintain a consistent trend in 60 min time frame.

Study long-term charts. Analyze weekly and daily charts. A larger scale map of the market provides more visibility and a better long-term perspective on a market. Once the long-term has been established, then consult the intra-day charts.

A short-term market view alone can often be deceptive. Even if you only trade the very short term, you will do better if you're trading in the same direction as the intermediate and longer term trends.

Dear Sir,
It was good to read you after around 2 weeks. Requesting to please your followers like me, on daily basis (if possible looking at your busy schedule). We will be really grateful to you.
In the current scenario, most of the analysts are sort of unanimous that is is a liquidity driven up/rally and the long term view based on fundamentals is grim. So, should we not ride this so called rally or should we have a conscious approach?
Regards,
Dinesh

Very True Sir, I have been following EOD charts as basis for my trading and then also see weekly patterns for consulting if day to day it is moving in the same direction or not.
