Time frame

Time frames and interval settings for a chart

You can access available time frames in one of the three following ways:

  1. Right click in the charting area to bring up the chart context menu, then select Settings followed by the Time Frame menu item.

Select the Global Configuration -> General -> ActionBar tab from the Tools main menu to define your own time frames or change existing time frames (periodicity and interval).

The following periodicities are available within the Global Configuration:

  • Seconds: x seconds per candle

  • Minutes: x minutes per candle

  • Hours: x hours per candle

  • Days: x days per candle

  • Weeks: x weeks per candle

  • Months: x months per candle

  • Ticks: x ticks per candle (a tick = one trade)

  • Volumes: x traded shares/contracts per candle

  • Range: x cents/pips/points/ticks per candle (price range)

In this case x corresponds to the interval entered.

Once all necessary changes have been made, the time frames will become available within the toolbar on the chart. Left click on one of these time intervals to apply it to the current chart.
