The time-frames listed are:

  1. 1 Minute – M1
  2. 5 Minute – M5
  3. 15 Minutes – M15

  5. 1 Hour – H1
  6. 4 Hours - H4
  7. Daily – D1
  8. Weekly – W1
  9. Monthly - MN

As a trader you only require to trade with only about 3 chart time frames, for example lets say a trader only requires the 15 minute, the 1 hour and the 4 hours time frame, then on the periodicity toolbar a trader can hide all the others that are not required using the following method.
