Forex Price-Action Strategies

Using Multiple Time Frames to Get Multiple Entries

We know using multiple time frames is an essential aspect of trading. Traders use the bigger time frame to find out the trend, breakout, vital support/resistance levels, and relatively smaller time frames to trigger an entry. In this lesson, we are going to learn how the trigger chart can be used as the analyzing chart to find out more entries.


This is a Daily chart, which is being used as the trigger chart. The weekly chart is used as the analyzing chart. It is a combination of Weekly-Daily. The price heads towards the North. Traders are to wait for the price to produce a bullish reversal candle.

A Spinning Top daily candle at a flipped support, the buyers have a lot to be optimistic here. One of the daily candles is to breach the daily resistance to go long on the pair. Let us draw the support and resistance on the chart to get a clearer picture.

This is how the chart looks like with support and resistance levels. If one of the daily candles breaches the resistance with good buying momentum, the daily traders are to trigger a long entry.

The next daily candle breaches the resistance. The buyer may take a long entry right after the breakout candle closes. An entry on the daily chart means that the trader shall leave the trade/chart for three to four trading days by setting Stop Loss and Take Profit.

However, if a trader uses the same daily chart as the trend-detecting chart and flips over to the H4 chart to find another entry, it surely would be more rewarding.

Let us flip over to the H4 chart.

Previously, the daily chart shows an upside breakout. Thus, the trend is bullish. The H4 chart shows that the price starts having consolidation. If the breakout level holds the H4 candles and makes an upside breakout, the H4 buyers are going to go long on the pair as well.

This is the H4 chart with the support and resistance of consolidation. The buyers must wait for an upside H4 breakout to go long on the pair. Let us proceed to the next chart.

Here it comes. An H4 bullish engulfing candle breaches the resistance. The H4 traders may want to trigger a long entry right after the candle closes.

The H4 chart shows the price may have consolidation again. The H4 buyers may want to cash in their profit. However, the entry, which is taken on the daily chart, traders are still to hold their positions until they get a bearish daily reversal candle.

At the end of the day, price action trading works very similarly on the Weekly, Daily, H4, and H1 chart. Today’s examples show that a Weekly-Daily combination offers an entry. After the daily breakout, the Daily-H4 combination offers an entry, as well. With a lot of practice, dedication, and hard work, a trader can trade both of them. This will surely beget more profit.
