You should at least add a 8hour time frame because there are really many traders who use ist. But the idea to add custom time frames is amazing.

We will start by allowing a lot more standard timeframes. (m5-m9, 20m, 45m, 2h, 3h, 6h, 8h, 2d, 3d). We trust this will satisfy the vast majority of users

This is ridiculous, you said this over 6 months ago, why has it not been implemented YET!

The need has always been there! Please make the ability to use custom timeframes. I have no doubt there would be a huge influx of traders switching to cTrader if and when this happens

People/Traders: My thoughts are, the whole point of time frames, is to summarise information.

For example, if you have a 1 day chart, how much good can you get out of using a 2 day chart, as opposed to say a 5 day/1 week chart to summarise or get a big picture view? SCRAP the 2 days! H1 is useful, H2 not so much. H4 is useful for the H1. H8 not so much for the H4. H16 useful for the H4.

I can see how seconds and different ticks could help though (no idea why they chose ticks 13, 21, 34)

Trading is about preference. Although trading platforms comes with a multitude of indicators, most traders would like to have the ability to use custom indicators or customize the indicators to suit their needs. As a multi- time frame trader I use different time frames as my indicators. The success of my trades depends on my ability to choose the correct time-frame. I base my trend, consolidation and entry on different time frames and these time-frame may change according to market volatility or currency pair. Mt4 has an indicator called a period converter built in so traders can achieve this goal maybe you can consider such an indicator.

At least add the 8 hour time frame to the Mobile and Web versions as in Windows version. This is an unmissable time frame as it corresponds nicely with the 3 main daily sessions, namely Tokyo, London and New York. No swing trader should trade without the 8 hour time frame.

You can have any time frame, tick number, Renko and range box sizes on cTrader with our Custom Period Chart indicator.

Dear Spotware,

 

If timeframes can be customized, allow then to customize the pip value of Range and Renko Bars.

Thank you,

Yes seconds also would be very useful-user defined though, i/e/ how many seconds per bar/

Is a must for scalping.....and a light-speed point entry directly onto the chart will be great to have too!

Include seconds

As per numerious suggestions customizable timeframes would be beneficial including seconds.

The only reason I do not use ctrader as my platform is due to the timeframes supplied (you have range/renko and tick but no seconds?)

High end platforms all provide seconds at a prenium fee - tradingview prenium / prorealtime / ect

Please refer to other suggestings requesting the same:

Some smaller time frames like 30, 15, 5 seconds would be really useful.
