What is the difference between daily, 4-Hour and 30-Minute signals?

  • 4-Hour signal is calculated on the 4-Hour closing time, and is sent immediately if there is a signal. It is medium-term signal.
  • Daily signal is calculated everyday, and is sent on about 8:15 AM UTC, so there are less daily signals compared to 4-hour signals.
    We suggest trading beginners following daily signals most time.
  • 30-Minute signals are for users with some trading experience, 30-minute signals can help you find the top and bottom.
    But 30-minute signals very frequently, you need to have the ability to make the decision to follow it or not.
  • You can think 4-hour Candlestick is used for 4-hour signals, and Daily Candlestick is used for Daily signals.
