Trading is a very delicate job. In the Forex market, there are so many tools you can use in order to make money.
Main article sections:
There are a lot of specific styles of trading, whose characteristics can be very diverse. Those trading dimensions are price action, indicator based, price action/indicator combination, harmonic, VSA, range bars/renko/any offline chart.
Now you know a bit more about the different trading methods, you should have in mind that the method that you choose will define which strategy you will be using while trading.
Different time frames
Before you start to trade, try to think about the time perspective. The time horizon will play a big factor in which time-frames are to be chosen. This can range from as low as a 1 minute chart, where the candle is formed every minute, to monthly charts where the candle forms once every month. Remember that each candle lasts for the specified period of time unless you are trading with the range bars which are completely immune to time factor.
In trading terms, anything below an hourly time-frame can be considered short-term. Scalping and scalp swings are good examples of trading short term. Hourly and 4 hour time frames are optimal for intraday and intra week swing trading so we can say that anything below a daily time-frame can be considered medium-term. Daily and above time-frames can be considered long-term, especially the weekly and monthly charts. Trades simply don't happen often, usually 4-5 times per year. Also, have in mind that a 1-minute chart trading strategy can be a bit overwhelming for you if you don't focus on your charts and you are distracted.
