Average Number of Candles per Trade by Time Frame


I’m prepping to trade time frames no shorter than 4 hours, and the length of time that the trade can last is a factor in deciding what frame to trade. Therefore, if you really know by experience or statistical study, I’d appreciate a reply.

Let’s say I’d be trading reversals. What is the average length of time or candles or periods a trade would last in these time frames?
4 hours:
1 day:
1 week:


It all depends on a lot of factors:

what kind of reversal are you planning to trade?
what pairs are your planning to trade?
are you planning to trade around news or not?
etc. etc.
