Session Open Horizontal Offset Zones 4 *
Note: If you find bugs, have feature requests, or anything else, post in THIS thread.

Simple indicator that will plot up to 3, opaque boxes/zones, a fixed n-TICS above/below what your session's Open price is.

This indicator updates on-each-tic/real time by default(can change to onbarClose if not needed).

You can toggle and modify the horizontal session break line.

Setting "AutoScaleBoxes" to true, will autoscale so that the ENTIRE box is in view on your chart. I.e., this will shrink the bars.

Note, installing this indicator will create a folder in your indicators called "BTMM", that's where the indicator will be.

Opening Range (amaOpeningRange) 5 *
Version 2.2 January 31, 2018

The Opening Range is the range obtained from the highest and lowest price of a security during the first minutes of daily trading activity. For example the opening range can be calculated from the first 5, 15 or 30 minutes.

The opening period can be selected via the time zone, the start time and the end time of the opening period. For example if you wish to display a 30-minute opening range for ES, you would select Exchange_Time or US_Central_Standard_Time, a start time of 8:30 AM and an end time of 9:00 AM. The indicator will then display the regular open and the opening range high, low and midline.

You may also use this indicator to display the pre-session range. It is possible to display the entire pre-session range that covers the period from the start of the trading day until the regular open, or you may select a custom period for the pre-session.

The indicator will only return an accurate opening range, if it is calculated from minute bars that align to the start time and end time of the selected opening period. For example, if you wish to display an accurate 30-minute opening range for ES, you may only apply the indicator to 1-min, 2-min, 3-min, 5-min, 10-min, 15-min or 30-min bars. When selecting other bar periods or bar types, there will be overlapping bars in the beginning and the end of the opening period. This may result in a slightly inaccurate opening range.

If you wish to display a correct opening range on any bar type, please proceed as follows:

- Add a secondary bar series of 1-min*) bar to your primary price panel.
- Set the colors for candle outllines, candle wicks, up and down bars to transparent.
- Apply the indicator to the secondary 1-minute bars for an exact calculation.

*) When you add a minute bar series to a tick or volume chart, this will slightly distort the chart, as the bar spacing is adjusted to the duration of the bars. As a consequence of the law of large numbers, the distortion will be smaller, if you add a secondary bar series with a lower resolution. It is therefore recommended to use the highest bar period available that aligns to the start time and end time of the opening period. For a 30-min opening period for ES, you may therefore add 30-min bars instead of 1-min bars.

The chart attached shows the 30-min opening range on a 1000-tick chart to ES 12-17. The invisible secondary bars that were added are 30-min bars.

Update January 31, 2018: Version 2.1 did not properly calculate the opening range when the first bar of the opening range had a time stamp greater than the end time of the opening period (display of short period opening ranges on higher timeframe charts). Version 2.2 has the bug removed.

Initial Balance Range Bands V42 MTF 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

Indicator will only run on NT 7.0.1000.5 or later.

The indicator displays the current open, the initial balance (IB) and upper and lower range bands that are calculated by adding and subtracting fractions of the initial balance to the IB high and IB low. This version is a multi-timeframe (MTF) version of the standard Initial Balance Range Bands V42 indicator. The indicator adds a second minute bar series to the chart, which is used to calculate the initial balance. It has the following advantages over the standard version:

For tick, range and volume charts: The standard indicator may not display the initial balance correctly, if the last bar expands the initial balance and closes after the opening period. The MTF version of the indicator will display the initial balance correctly, even if the primary bar series does not contain the necessary information for its calculation. An example is shown on the chart attached.

Use with minute charts: You want to use this indicator with minute charts, if the opening period is not an integer multiple of the bar period. Example: You trade 7 min charts and your opening period is 30 minutes.

You can only use this indicator with an appropriate session template. The opening time will align itself to the start time of the RTH session, as specified via session template. The hybrid setting assumes that you want to use the 3rd intraday session as RTH session for FOREX and currency futures and the second session for all other instruments.

Example ES: Select a session template with the following sessions: Session 1 (night session) 15:30 - 8:30 Central Time, Session 2 (RTH) 8:30 - 15:15 Central Time. Select second session for opening range.

Select length of opening period: The length of the period for establishing the initial balance can be selected via indicator dialogue box. The default setting is 60 minutes.

Select Offset: With an offset of 00:00, the indicator aligns to the start of the selected session. If you enter a positive value for the offset, the opening range will be shifted forward from the session start. For example if you open a chart for ES with the session template US CME Index Futures, then the session (and the trading day) starts at 5:00 PM Central Time. To display an opening range for the regular session, you need to enter an offset of 15:30, because the regular session starts 15 hours and 30 minutes after the start of the trading day.

Multipliers for range bands: The multipliers for the upper and lower range bands can also be changed. The default settings for the bands are 0.5, 1 and 2, meaning that the first upper band is built from the IB high by adding half of the IB range, and similar for the other bands.

Display regular open or one-minute-range: The indicator allows to either display the regular open or the range of the first minute of trading after the start time selected for the opening range.

Developing range: Prior to the completion of the opening range, the indicator plots the developing range in gray to show that the range is still incomplete.

Night session or pre-session range: The indicator also has an option to display the full night session, European or Asian session range. This feature is not used with the default settings. I did not add it on purpose, it was already part of the opening range indicator, and it was easier to leave it than to remove it.

European Session Range: You can select start and end time of the European Session in CET (Central European Time). The European Session is pre-configured for the time between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM CET.

Asian Session Range: You can select start and end time of the Asian Session in TST (Tokyo Standard Time). The Asian Session is pre-configured for the time between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM TST.

Update July 25, 2011: Serialization of the plots and indicator dialogue box changed.
Update December 8, 2013: Indicator entirely recoded. Offset added, opening period no longer needs to be aligned to the session start. Drop down property added for time zones. Custom plot added.
Update March 15, 2015: Regular open and minute range were drawn back to start of trading day on tick charts. Bug removed.

SessionPivots V43 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

Indicators will only run on NT 7.0.1000.5 or later.

Family of 6 indicators to display daily, weekly and monthly pivots and OHL of current day, current week and current month. The package includes

- anaPivotsDailyV43
- anaPivotsWeeklyV43
- anaPivotsMonthlyV43

Options for the Pivot indicators: Floor pivots, pivot range, midpivots, floor pivots wide, Jackson Zones, Fibonacci pivots, Camarilla pivots, VWAP of the prior session

- anaCurrentDayOHLV43
- anaCurrentWeekOHLV43
- anaCurrentMonthOHLV43

Options for the OHL indicators: Open, high and low of the current period, Fibonacci retracement levels calculated from current high and low, noise bands, target bands based on the average daily/weekly/monthly range.

Chart settings: Please set the right side margin under chart properties to 200 to allow for correct display of the labels. The colors are adapted to dark chart backgrounds.

Session templates: The indicators require the use of a correct session template for the instrument shown on the chart. With an ETH template only ETH pivots, ETH OHL and ETH noise and target bands can be displayed. For displaying RTH pivots, it is recommend to use a multi-session template that divides the day into the night session, regular session and after-session.

Use of daily data on intraday charts: The 3 pivot indicators are designed to load daily data, if the option for "Calculate from session" is set to “Daily Bars”. This the data used by the indicator:

"Calculate from session" = "DailyBars": Pivots are entirely calculated from daily data.
"Calculate from session" = "ETH" & "Settlement/Close" = "DailyBars": High and low are taken from the full intraday sessions. The close or settlement price is taken from daily data.
"Calculate from session" = "RTH" & "Settlement/Close" = "DailyBars": High and low are taken from the regular intraday sessions. The close or settlement price is taken from daily data.
"Calculate from session" = "ETH" & "Settlement/Close" = "Intraday Close": High and low are taken from the full intraday sessions. The close is the last price traded for the full session.
"Calculate from session" = "RTH" & "Settlement/Close" = "Intraday Close": High and low are taken from the regular intraday sessions. The close is the last price traded for the regular session.

Auto setting for the 3 pivot indicators: The Auto setting will preselect ETH for FOREX and all CME currency futures, but preselect RTH for all other instruments.

VWAP: The VWAP of the prior day is always calculated from intraday data. Depending on the chart resolution it can be a few ticks off the correct value.

Auto setting for the 3 OHL indicators: The Auto setting will preselect the third intraday-session as the regular session for FOREX & currency futures, but preselect the second intraday-session for all other instruments.

Noise Bands: The OHL indicators can be used to display noise bands. The noise is determined by averaging the smaller move Min (High – Open, Open – Low) over N1 & N2 days. The average values are displayed in a data table. The noise is added to and subtracted from the current open.

Target Bands: The OHL indicators can be used to display target bands. The targets can be determined in two different ways: Either the average daily range over N1 & N2 days is added to the current low (high projection) or subtracted from the current high (low projection), or the daily expansion from the open Max(High – Open, Open – Low) is averaged over N1 & N2 days and added to and subtracted from the open. The average daily range or average daily expansion is shown in the data table.

GLOBEX holiday sessions with settlement next day: The indicators are preconfigured for Globex holiday sessions without settlement for trade date next day or later. These trade dates are President’s Day, Martin-Luther-King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving. The indicators will display double day sessions for these days for all GLOBEX and NYMEX traded instruments.

Initial Balance Range Bands V42 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

Indicator will only run on NT 7.0.1000.5 or later.

Discretionary traders: Please use the multi-timeframe version of the indicator for odd minute charts and charts built from ticks.



The indicator displays the current open, the initial balance (IB) and upper and lower range bands that are calculated by adding and subtracting fractions of the initial balance to the IB high and IB low.

You can only use this indicator with an appropriate session template. The opening time will align itself to the start time of the RTH session, as specified via session template. The hybrid setting assumes that you want to use the 3rd intraday session as RTH session for FOREX and currency futures and the second session for all other instruments.

Example ES: Select a session template with the following sessions: Session 1 (night session) 15:30 - 8:30 Central Time, Session 2 (RTH) 8:30 - 15:15 Central Time. Select second session for opening range.

Select length of opening period: The length of the opening range can be selected via indicator dialogue box The default setting is 60 minutes.

Select Offset: With an offset of 00:00, the indicator aligns to the start of the selected session. If you enter a positive value for the offset, the opening range will be shifted forward from the session start. For example if you open a chart for ES with the session template US CME Index Futures, then the session (and the trading day) starts at 5:00 PM Central Time. To display an opening range for the regular session, you need to enter an offset of 15:30, because the regular session starts 15 hours and 30 minutes after the start of the trading day.

Multipliers for range bands: The multipliers for the upper and lower range bands can also be changed. The default settings for the bands are 0.5, 1 and 2, meaning that the first upper band is built from the IB high by adding half of the IB range, and similar for the other bands.

Developing range: Prior to the completion of the initial balance, the indicator plots the developing range in gray to show that the range is still incomplete.

Night session or pre-session range: The indicator also has an option to display the full night session, European or Asian session range. This feature is not used with the default settings. I did not add it on purpose, it was already part of the opening range indicator, and it was easier to leave it than to remove it.

European Session Range: You can select start and end time of the European Session in CET (Central European Time). The European Session is pre-configured for the time between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM CET.
