FOREX Sessions 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

The indicator can be used to display the opening hours of the Tokyo, London and New York FOREX markets. For each of the three FOREX markets a different background color can be selected. For the overlapping hours the background colors are blended.

Below are listed the default settings for the opening hours, which are user selectable. Please keep in mind that you have to use the appropriate time zones, when entering the opening hours.

Tokyo: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM TST (Tokyo Standard Time)
London: 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM GMT (Greenwich Standard Time) or BST (British Summertime, from March to October)
New York: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST (US Eastern Standard Time) or EDT (Eastern Daylight Time, from March to November)

There is no daylight saving time in Japan. Therefore the Tokyo/London overlap is about two hours in summer, but only one hour in winter. The London/New York overlap is typically three and a half hours. However, London and New York observe different daylight saving schedules. During the last two weeks of March and during the first week of November, New York is on summertime while London is on standard time. During these three weeks the overlap is increased to four and a half hours.

The indicator handles the conversion of the trading hours of the three major FOREX markets automatically.

Update September 1, 2013 : Bug removed, indicator did not work correctly on charts built from tick data.
Update December 5, 2014: Option added to change color and opacity for off-session times.
Update April 22, 2015: Code simplified.
