I normally use the ETH session for CL. The indicator plots the open range at the start of Globex session. I cant seem to find a combination of sessions that will allow me to use my normal ETH session template and have the indie plot the RTH open.

I suppose I am just dense here but I've never used a session other than the ETH or RTH supplied with NT.

Any suggestions on how to make it work properly would be helpful.

Thanks.

Indie settings I currently have

I read the thread start to finish and I see where I asked this same question earlier. I also remember building a session template like the one you suggested and now I remember it never worked and I just gave up. Is it possible to simply post a zip file with the session template you suggest for CL? I don't know if thats possible or not.

Can you share your session template that you used in your chart for the new OR ?

Here is the session template that I use with 6E. It is not totally in line with 6E market hours, as I favor a break for the London open instead of the break for the end of RTH session at 2:00 PM CT.

There are actually two settings to achieve this

(a) set the indicator to the first session and enter an offset of + 15:00 hours (ETH Open is at 6:00 PM, RTH open is at 9:00 AM, the difference is therefore 15 hours)

(b) set the indicator to the second session (yes, I know there is no second session) and enter an offset of -8:15 hours. (ETH close is at 5:15 PM, RTH open is at 9:00 AM, the difference is therefore - 8:15 hours)

The second option has an advantage. The indicator will not display pre-session highs and lows, if you select the first session. With the second session this is possible. Chart attached.

I have had some requests to further enhance the Opening Range Indicator.

After the last change, with which I had introduced an offset for the start time, I have now added an option that the opening range can either be drawn

-> until the end of the current session
-> until the end of the trading day

The new option somehow interfered with the other option to select an offset, and the two options together have sinigificantly increased the complexity of the code. The first version that I had put in the download section had a bug, when an offset was selected.

Hopefully, the latest version will work as expected. I would be happy, if anybody is willing to test the indicator.

@Fat Tails,

The lines plotted on the chart are drawn by your 3rd instance of the indicator, which you have set to the US session. You have selected to show the European session high and low, and that is what the indicator displays.

You can set that third instance to

Full : high and low of entire pre-session will be drawn
Asian: high and low of Asian session will be drawn
European: high and low of European session will be drawn
