Typically most people just watch the volume of each contract and switch over when the front month has more volume. Bring up a market analyzer (I think that's what NT calls it), and add both contracts and watch it each day to see which has more volume.

Regarding which session template to use, there is no right or wrong one. FX trades almost 24hrs / day. Considerations for which template to use (or to create your own) might be:
- Where do you live and what time will you be trading
- Plot a 24hr template and see where most of the volume occurs
- Do you want to only plot the times of day where the most volume occurs or do you want to see everything

Diversification is the only free lunch
