# What time frame do professional traders use?

One of the first things I hear about our program is how much it saves their trading careers. However I’d like to make a quick comparison of our program to other trading programs.

One thing is that our model is highly specialized. It does not fit much of the time-slice that most trading models try to predict.

The second thing is that our model does not produce predictions. We use a large dataset that we then use to train a high-level model. This high-level model is also very specialized and does not produce any prediction.

As we said before, our models work best when they do not produce predictions.

So if you are looking to buy futures, you may find yourself investing a lot more time into our models than a typical investment.

It also costs more to trade.

Let’s take a look at some of our trading indicators:

Fibonacci extension

The Fibonacci extension (also named the Fibonacci series) is the ratio of the number of Fibonacci moments (i.e. steps from 0 to 3) divided by the number of total Fibonacci moments (i.e. steps from 0 to N); a Fibonacci number refers to any number where the number of consecutive Fibonacci moments are equal to the number of total Fibonacci moments.

This means if the number of consecutive Fibonacci moments on one hand is equal to the number of total Fibonacci moments on the other, then the Fibonacci series (which includes itself) is equal to itself; it just happened to change slightly (i.e. the number of total Fibonacci moments is now equal to the number of total Fibonacci moments).

As you can see, the Fibonacci series is a strong indicator of the direction of an index.

In the example shown above, the green line is the index’s moving average. The red line represents the market as a whole.

If we look carefully we can see that the yellow line is the price of 1 euro. The black line is the green average in terms of 1 euro and the pink line is the black average in terms of 2 euro and so on.

These three lines illustrate that there is a large variation in the price of 1 Euro at various points within the trading day.

Why do we use this?

Well, as the following diagram shows, the Fibonacci series actually represents the market
