Shouldn't the ES be non-tradable during the maintenance period?

Hi guys,

I was trying to understand how the ES work and I read that its trading hours close from 15:15 to 15:30 and from 16:30 to 17:00 CT, however when I looked into a 1min chart I still saw that it was traded between 21:15 and 21:30 BST time (which correspond to 15:15-15:30 CST).

Can you have a look at the attachment and let me know if it's normal that the ES is still traded during those maintenance hours? or I am checking something incorrectly?

Cheers.

definitely no trading between those two periods. looks like you got the time difference right. what time zone do you use for the session templates? the correct time zone in your case (es) would be central time (best is always the time zone of the exchange). and then it should work correctly. also I would use local time for my pc time.

The problem is that your chart times are in Eastern time, not BST.

Thanks, I'll check later on when I arrive back home. I was expecting for NinjaTrader to use the right template automatically, as I'm just importing the ES instrument and I supposed they had set up the correct time zone of the appropiate exchange... I'll double check.

My current local time is BST, so according to NinjaTrader support:

"The time you see at the bottom of your charts are your local PC clock time.
So the data is recorded in US Eastern, then the charts convert this to show in your local time zone."

So, according to their explanation my chart times are not ET, but local BST time, which didn't really explain the chart I saw last night. I'll check it out again later, it was not obvious what was going on.

Check your clock again, and if it is correct, check with NT about this. I checked that specific day and verified the price and volume that you are using Eastern time, which is what I use.

Thank you guys. I was still receiving the wrong alignment today so I deleted the market replay data, downloaded the data for the 25th to see if it appeared as Silvester17's screenshot and to my surprise, it did!

Then I downloaded the data for the 4th again and this time the instrument properly stopped trading at 21:15.

Not really sure what was going on as I didn't change any template or system clock, but it seems sorted now... things make sense now

Thanks for checking it out!!
