Adjust Thinkorswim Time frame to Second


Could someone please help me out? I'm trying to adjust time frame of Thinkorswim to second scale. However the smallest time frame in Quick Time Frames is only 1 minute. I'd like it to go to second.

tick data

one minuet is smallest time increment. If you want to get more granular try a tick chart. This method draws a chart based on the user defined number of tick or transactions. You can bring this up by going to the Style tab in the upper right corner of the chart and select "aggregation type" then "tick." You can select the number of transaction to aggregate by going to chart settings in the time axis tab. If you select 1 you will get the most granular data (lowest level of data) possible. Word of caution: to much information is not always a good thing. Hopes this helps
