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

Periodicity Toolbar Menu on MetaTrader 4 - XAUUSD Timeframes Beginners

The time frames listed are:

  1. 1 Minute - M1
  2. 5 Minute - M5
  3. 15 Minutes - M15

  5. 1 Hour - H1
  6. 4 Hours - H4
  7. Daily - D1
  8. Weekly - W1
  9. Monthly - MN
