Trading timeframe will not actually affect your returns or your ability to trade. Trading timeframe is really more like a preference, a preference. The bottom line is that to become a profitable trader, you can actually be a short-term timeframe trader all the way to a long-term timeframe trader.

It’s just like you’re trying to get from point A to point B. There’s a lot of different ways of getting from point A to point B. And it doesn’t mean that if you use a daily chart or a weekly chart, you will get to point A faster or you’ll get the point A less effort and stuff. Because in reality, trading is really about your willingness to put in effort to learn at the start and then to apply thereafter.

So I would say that it is more important to consider the timeframe based on your time availability as well as your personality.
