Also, lower TF leads higher TF and Tick leads TF not the other way around.
lol, I wasn't suggesting that the higher timeframes make up the lower.. I know that ticks make up the higher timeframes. I was implying that his downfall in trading the M1 could be at a psychological level. Where he may panic and see profit turn into loss on a M1 timeframe and close the trade prematurely (either in small profit, or loss).
Now in a higher time frame, be it 5min all the way up to 4hourly, he may be able to SEE the market differently. What may seem a big push in price against him on the M1, may just look like a little nudge on the higher time frames (again, I'm talking on a psychological level here).
Other reason is it is safer to trade lower TF because there is no need to hold the position overnight (lowering the exposure risk).
Holding a position using higher TF as a base means losing multiple entries in lower TF IMHO.
I don't agree with you here. Trading the 5min to even daily doesn't necessarily mean you have to hold the position over night. I trade the higher time frames and I haven't had one trade that's rolled over. Also it also doesn't necessarily mean lower risk exposure, because you're in and out of the market all the time so you're risking ALL the time. I look at pro's trading history and I see 10-30 trades. If I were to past you mine you'll see 2, max 4 trades a day, hitting my targets and staying OUT of the market as much as I can. Remember you can lose just as much and just as fast as you can win.
Also, having a position based on a higher time frame doesn't mean you're losing multiple entries. There's nothing to stop you from entering as many positions you want, on any time frame just because you're basing your direction bias (short or long) on a higher time frame.
But, each to their own. I'm not saying DON'T trade the M1.. hey, you may do it and be a multimillionaire . I'm just observing and giving my two cents
