Chart Intervals

Chart intervals are derived from the three available data-sets:

  • Days >> Daily to Annual
  • Hours >> 1 to 6 Hours
  • Minutes >> 1 to 30 Minutes

To change the chart interval in a project, use View >> Chart Interval on the main menu.

view >> chart interval

Alternatively, you can use the drop-down menu on the toolbar:

Setting Indicators

Indicators created for one data-set (e.g. Hours) will not display when you select a Chart Interval derived from another data-set (e.g. Minutes). They will, however, display across Chart Intervals derived from the same data-set (e.g. 2 to 6 Hours).

This requires you to set up 3 sets of indicators, but does allow you the flexibility of viewing the same indicator (e.g. 24-Hour Twiggs Momentum) across different Chart Intervals (e.g. 1 to 6 Hours).

Charts are integrated by data-set: you can set indicators (e.g. Moving Averages or Bollinger Bands) on a daily chart and they will appear on weekly to annual charts. You can also set daily indicators on monthly charts and vice versa. Indicator settings do not automatically change as you move between intervals in a data-set.

Creating Separate Indicator Views

You can set up separate indicators for Daily, Weekly and Monthly chart intervals using projects:

  1. Use File >> New File to create separate Daily, Weekly and Monthly project Files.
  2. Open the Daily file and set up all Daily indicators in a single project file.
    • Open the Indicator Panel.
    • Select an indicator and adjust the settings to your Daily requirements before saving >> it.
  3. Open the Weekly file, change your chart interval to weekly, and set up Weekly Indicators as above.
  4. Open the Monthly file, change your chart interval, and set up Monthly indicators.
