Let's take a look at some of the common time frames that I use when doing my analysis and why they are important to me. A few things to note. There are 6 hours and 30 minutes a day when the market is open (not including holidays where the market closes early). That 6.5 hours is 390 minutes. Also it is important to remember that on each time frame 233t or 15 minute, each time that time elapse a new candle will print. 233 ticks before a new candle forms. 15 minutes before a new candle forms.
Let's discuss each below and there are some that you don't see here but I'll talk about them. Also, I will show you how to add custom time frames to your charts.
Adding Custom Time Frames
To add custom time frames go to the time frames and click customize time frames or go to you chart settings and click the Favorite Time Frames tab. It is there you can add your custom times frames by clicking Add time frame....
Couple notes: Intra day is 1 day to 360 days and Daily is 1 Month to Max Available. The tick option all you need to see is the 1 day.
