"The technique is so simple that just several lessons (or a few pages of explanations) cover it all. Now what? Now the student has to practice, practice and practice again to understand what he had been taught. The teacher DOES know much more than the student, but his understanding can't be "passed", "transferred" or taught in any way -- not even by reading books."
Although there are other 'regular' phenomena that can be observed on all time frames, I am using two of them in my personal approach - so I will incorporate their discussion in the thread - or better leave you with possible ideas behind constructing an edge for yourself.
If you find a specific repeating pattern in the market, you can assume that it will happen with higher frequency in lower time frames. Although you would gain more opportunities by looking at the lower time frame, each opportunity yields a smaller return on average compared to looking at the same pattern, one or more time frames up in the scale. That is a point worth considering in terms of your possible style of trading.
Now, 2 patterns of market behaviour happen on a regular basis:
1) the price breaks to new high's (or low's)
2) the price reverses from new high's (or low's)
They happen regardless of time frame (with the obvious limitations explained above)
They are phenomena that can be exploited without the fear if found out by others, that they might cease to exist.

"You can think of this like some branches caught up and obstructing a stream. The same volume of water moving faster might not be enough to dislodge the branches, but if you steadily increase the volume of the water as well, it will eventually sweep away the obstructions."
5000$ account * 2% = RISK = $100
25$ = POSITION SIZE
RISK = STOP LOSS * POSITION SIZE
RISK / POSITION SIZE = STOP LOSS
100$ / 25$ = STOP LOSS = 4
10$ = POSITION SIZE
100$ / 10$ = STOP LOSS = 10
A lower position size gives the trade more room and time to mature. You must control your pips.
Be not concerned with the past or the future. Be in the moment. The moment is all that there is. You flow with the pips or they flow against you.
