What graphs and what do I watch

Hello, today we will look at what timeframes and indicators I use. If you don’t already know, I don’t use simple charts and software provided by the broker, but software created specifically for professionals.
The ATAS program provides an incredible number of ways to display information, and coupled with a bunch of filters and alerts for finding the events you need, it makes the program a very powerful tool for analysis. Although the software is paid, it is currently free for the crypto market. Download the software, install it, and together we will look for major market participants.
All examples are considered for the Binance exchange, but everything is also true for any other market or instrument.
It doesn’t matter what market and what instrument you trade in, the task is the same - to make money. And you can make money only in one way, by trading in the direction in which everyone else is trading.
And for this you need to look at those methods that are available to everyone, and these are simple candlestick charts. Availability in every software by default and ease of perception of information make them so popular.
That's why I watch them too, the main thing is M5, H1, D1, Range Bar.


The five-minute chart is the basis, nothing extra, just a chart and a few indicators. I mainly use moving averages with a period of 21, 52, 200.
21 is the approximate number of working days in a month,
52 weeks a year;
200 is a classic, considered a strong level.
Plus, I also add a volume indicator with a filter so that the volume greater than the set value is highlighted in a different color, on my chart it is yellow so that it stands out against the general background, fortunately the software allows you to do this without any problems.


Hourly - general picture of the market, search for global levels, as well as certain setups.


During the day, I already look at the cluster chart, in ATAS, for this it is enough to simply zoom in on the candles. I look at the volume spikes in the candlestick profile, as well as the general direction of the market.

Range Bar

Well, the main chart is the Range Bar. Its important difference is that it is being built, eliminating such a parameter as time, and this is very important when you are looking for large market participants. Here I already look at all the large transactions, crowd stops, hidden traded orders, preponderance of purchases or sales, and much more. This is a symbiosis of the order book, footprint and chart.

For now this is just an introduction. But all this, coupled with the analysis of the order book, provides a powerful analysis of the market.

As you can see, there are no unclear indicators such as RSI, MACD and other rubbish. Any indicator is just some kind of formula, presented in the form of a graphical component, based on history. It is much more effective to watch the price, what is happening right now and do what large market participants are doing. But first things first, there is still a lot of interesting things ahead.
