The time frames listed are:


  1. 1 Minute - M1
  2. 5 Minute - M5
  3. 15 Minutes - M15

  5. 1 Hour - H1
  6. 4 Hours - H4
  7. Daily - D1
  8. Weekly - W1
  9. Monthly - MN

As a stock trader you only require to trade with only about 3 chart time frames, for example let's say a stock trader only requires the 15 minute, the 1 hour and the 4 hours time frame, then on the periodicity toolbar a stock trader can hide all the others that are not required using the following method.
