65 min bar charts creates interesting problems

Recommended Posts

Price bars with 65 minute duration, seem to create a labeling problem. The final bar of the day is labeled 14:55, but from my perspective the bar labelled 9:30 should be labelled 16:00.  This can be seen on a chart of the SPY.  While the chart of IMO:CA is missing the final bar of the day.  I use 65 minute bars because they go evenly into the 390 minute trading day for stocks. There would be 6 of them daily.

Running windows 10, Stockwatch datafeed. If there's any more info you need let me know.

the label on the bar is the start of the bar, not the end, and bars do not span multiple sessions, so the 9:30 label is correct. 16:00 would be the bar from 16:00 to 17:05 if you are using 65 frequency and assuming you are not showing extended hours, there wouldn't be such a bar
