- Detects if the current timeframe is intraday (minutes or hours).

Why We Made This: Not Just for India:
While we looked at the Indian market, this indicator works everywhere. Regular timeframes like 30 minutes, 1 hour, and 2 hours often end with incomplete candles, especially at the end of the trading day. For example:
- A 30-minute timeframe makes 13 candles, but the last one is only 15 minutes long.
- A 1-hour timeframe shows 7 candles, but the last one is just the last 15 minutes.
By switching to different timeframes like 25 minutes, 75 minutes, and 125 minutes, you get more complete information for better trading decisions. Learn more about this in our article: "Power of 25, 75, and 125-Minute Timeframes in the Indian Market", recognized by Trading View's Editors' Pick.
The indicator extends its benefits even to users without access to certain timeframes. It accommodates traders using a 1-hour timeframe (pertaining to Indian traders). By employing this indicator, traders consistently remain mindful of incomplete candles within their chosen timeframe
For those who utilize concepts like RBR, RBD, DBR, and DBD, this indicator is paramount. An incomplete candle can skew analysis, leading to potential misinterpretations of base or leg candles.
In markets like the Indian stock market, adopting such a tool is not just beneficial, but necessary. Whether you have access to unconventional timeframes or are using traditional ones, recognizing and accounting for the limitations of incomplete candles is critical & it's important to know if your candles fit the timeframe properly. This indicator gives you a better view of the market, which helps you make smarter trades.
