The chart will display Data from Kraken in the header, and you will be able to change to an intraday timeframe:
Kraken provide very limited intraday history. However, the history will build up on your computer over time i.e. in 6 months you will have 6 months of intraday history. However, to ensure continuous chart history you will need to open an intraday chart every two days to download the latest data from Kraken.
