(1/2) Selectable timescales is most certainly an invitation to make the data fit whatever narrative you want. This is S&P500 ETF in progressively longer timescales.

(2/2) Four more: 1mo, 3mo, 6mo, 1yr. Is it going up, is it going down? Are we at a top? Are we at a bottom?

@me As an investor (as opposed to speculator) you shouldn't be interested in timescales shorter than 6 months. The 12 month rolling timescale is the typical on I'm looking at.

If you're a speculator, then, well, you look at whatever you want. You're just playing a game at that point.
