What is the time-based bar interval for?

TradingView allows you to set any time-based bar interval - from 1 minute to 12 months, as well as work with price range bars. More resolutions mean more possibilities! The standard set of intervals includes the most popular, and users with a paid subscription can set any interval. Whether that be seven minutes, twelve minutes or five hours for any instrument, you decide! For users with a PREMIUM plan, second intervals are available to track minimum price changes. Please note that second intervals are pre-set and cannot be customized.
