      Higher time frames, we can use long term trading techniques. For lower time frames we can use short term trading techniques. Make it simple, for example scalping you can use lower time frames.

      It depend of the type of strategy you are dealing with and you only who can make the decision in terms of the best time fram suitable for your trading, because all times are valid and good for trading and remains only how to trade with and adapt to your data, especially, in terms of type of trading if the long-term or short-term and value of the capital you are trading.

      None among the two is better because the two are of equal importance. the higher time frames has its usefulness, just as the lower time frames has its own importance as well. The two work hand in hand to compliment each other because they are used for so many things in the market especially when you want to get the primary direction of the market , the higher time frames is good for this, but for a proper entry in the market , the lower time frames are the best for this.I love to make use of the two in market analysis and trade.

      Different time frame has different significance, and require different trading strategies. However, I prefer to trade in the lower time frame than the higher time frame. That is because of personal preference, and also because in lower time frame, you can trade very fast.

      Both higher timeframes and lower timeframes are equally good for trading but it depends on individual trader's ability to make good use of the chosen timeframe in making good profits.

      I always prefer using higher timeframes like 4H and Daily since this is the way I was trained in trading profitably. By using higher timeframes, you make more pips and you won't have to be stressing yourself.

      I remember those times that I tried to use lower timeframes to scalp, I always lose woefully in the end. So, I don't bother to use lower timeframes.

      From my experience in this market i see that the small frames are not good in trading and we can't depend on it in any analysis but bigger frames from 4 h frames to monthly frames are very good in the analysis and we can't depend on its more than smallest frames and specially 4 h frame because i see that it is the best frame in the analysis and we can depend on it too much in making our technical analysis on it as define trend direction or resistance and support lines .

      all times frames are best for trading, it depends on how you trade this market, some traders use multi tme frames strategies which is analyzing in high time frames and trading in lower ones and scalpers prefer lower time frame to quick profit.

      All timeframes are good for trading. Its all depend on trader's trading style and trading system. Some trader enjoys to trade short term and it means they can use 1m-1h timeframes and the other trader enjoys trading using long term system and they will prefer 4h and above timeframes.

      If you do scalping then you should use lower time frame but if you do long term trading then you should use higher time frames. Because lower time frames can't give you more and hard prove that market is going on your direction for long time. But if you want you can see the market trend on higher time frames and then follow the trend on lower time frames to scalp quick profits.

      I think it depends on the one we know use best, in the forex trading market we can decide to use higher time frame smaller time frame, but it's a thing of debate in in trying to choose which is the best to use. But in my own perspective and I could be wrong, I will go with higher time frame because we will definitely more pips with less trading because we will also loose less
