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 Premium plan holders and for all Professional plans (Expert, Elite and Ultimate), seconds-based intervals are available to track minimum price changes. Please note that seconds-based intervals are pre-set and cannot be customized.
