Periodicity just means chart time frames, in MetaTrader 4 this toolbar is used to select which chart time-frames to trade with.

The time-frames listed are:

  1. 1 Minute – M1
  2. 5 Minute – M5
  3. 15 Minutes – M15
  4. 30 Minutes – M30
  5. 1 Hour – H1
  6. 4 Hours - H4
  7. Daily – D1
  8. Weekly – W1
  9. Monthly - MN
