Hi,

How many one-minute bars going backwards in time can be displayed in a chart?

 

If I wanted to look at a one-minute chart from, say five days ago, can that be done?

Only one complete previous trading day can be seen on a one minute chart.

Each time frames starts the trading day with 500 bars of data available with new bars added throughout the trading day if applicable.

Since there are 390 minutes in a trading day, you start with one full day of one minute data and 110 minutes of data from the day before that.

Then as the current trading day progresses, you get the new data for the current trading day with the previous data still there. So by the end of the trading day there are 890 bars of 1-minute data. That would be two full trading days (including the current trading day) and 110 minutes of data from the day before that.

So there would be no way to view a 1-minute chart from five days ago.
