Time frame and Time Span

Get a broad view of a stock's performance on a Weekly chart or drill down to the current action on a minute chart. The time frame selector on the chart enables you to choose how much time is displayed per bar (1 minute bars, 5 min bars, daily bars etc.).

The Time Span buttons at the bottom of the chart let you choose a preset window of time for the chart (today, 1 week, year to date, etc.) When you choose a time span, the time frame is automatically set to a predetermined value that fits best within the chart.

Hot keys for each time frame are listed on the pulldown as well. Press 1 for Daily, 2 for 2 Day, etc.
