How can I work on 5 minute chart?

I understand I can change between tick, second, minute, hour and day resolutions, but it's not clear to me how I can work on 5 minute chart. Not just indicators, but also I want to process OnData for every 5 minute data.

You'll need to define your own 5 minute bars. Have a peak at the QCU How Do I Make Any TimeSpan TradeBars? and the QCU How Do I Use Consolidators?

An important note is that each consolidator can only receive data for one symbol. Let me know if you have any further issues with this.
//create a 5 minute SPY consolidator
_consolidator = new TradeBarConsolidator(TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5));
_consolidator.DataConsolidated += SpyFiveMinute;
SubscriptionManager.AddConsolidator("SPY", _consolidator);

// this is what SpyFiveMinute's signature should look like
public void SpyFiveMinute(object sender, TradeBar fiveMinuteSpyBar)
