I would like a 24 hr x 7 days per week intraday chart on any symbol. Continuous time charts with no gaps. Typically the all the Saturday and Sunday bars would be represented by flat bars. The plot should not skip from Friday to Monday. I have tried :
- sessions times of 0:00:00 to 23:59:59
- Load all weekend data
- include columns with no data
- include Sat-Sun bars for daily charts.

I can get data on a Sunday if the symbol trades on Sunday night like ES, but no data on Saturday.

I have also always wanted this and hope it is available one day. The reason for this, just like on a daily chart with calendar days instead of only trading days, is that natural cycles do not care if the market is open or not. So measuring time this way requires ALL of the bars in a day so that things like the chart calculator and other time based drawing tools count the bars properly. Also, if I have a drawing on a daily chart that falls on a Saturday and I copy it to a smaller resolution chart based on intraday data, it will shove the drawing to Monday, which then alters the rest of the drawing, making any calculations from it erroneous.

It seems like it would be as simple as plotting the session times with an "include weekends and holidays" option. Then you could run a true 24/7 chart.

I wanted to comment here rather than start a new thread so that it is noted someone other than just the OP would like this capability as well.
