Why do line graph with date x-axis have 5 day gridmarks?

When creating a line graph with a date y axis, grid marks are based on 5 day periods starting on the 1st of the month.  I am not sure what purpose that serves as (I assume) most analysts analyze their businesses based on weeks starting on Sundays and ending on Saturdays (or at least some other 7 day interval).  This seems a bit useless.
