How to set up 7 Minute, 8 Minute and 9 Minute charts on MT5 platform


Is it possible for me as an MT5 trader to set up 7 Minute, 8 Minute and 9 Minute charts on my MT5 platform?

If yes, how do I go about doing that?

Thank you,

And how would you prevent 7 minute, 8 minute and 9 minute charts to start at a different point (and thus repaint)? For example : when exactly would a new 7 minute (or 8 minute or 9 minute) bar start within a new hour or a new day or whatever?

Some “time frames” are not possible simply due to the nature of “time frames” and a lack of periodicity and repeatability - forget about those

Thank you for your response.

How come what you are saying is being done for 1 Minute, 2 Min, M3, M4, M5 and M6? Why is it not possible for M7, M8 and M9?

Surely if you can start a new bar at every new 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, 4 min, 5 min and 6 min, you would also be able to do exactly the same for 7min, 8min and 9min?







60/7=? (need integer value)



Thanks a lot! You can see I´m not a programmer. :slight_smile:

On second thoughts: wshapter1w, you clarified what obasilone1x was saying.

However, it is possible to set up a 7 minute, 8 minute and 9 minute or any minute or hour or any time frame chart manually.

Thus, it is possible to do it on a computer. That is the question I am asking.

Is it possible for me to do it with the available tools on the MT5 platform?

It can not

You are lacking the periodicity and repeatability - regardless if you try to do that manually or automatically

I humbly beg to differ :slight_smile:

You can always do it manually. You just move the 60 forward all the time

Actually you could, but that would be an arbitrary mess. (you need to fix some rules).
