highlighting timeframes?

i run default 24/7 charts and i was wondering if there is a way in NT7 or if there is an extension that allows us to color code(highlight) certain hours of the day on the chart. obv with user defined colors and times.

Yes, there is such an indicator. I believe it is called TimeZoneColors... and you can use it to highlight 3 separate time regions for every instance of the indicator that you place on the chart.

Happy Trading,

Randy

Also there is another indicator here, which colors the background of your chart according to specific times:

This one colors the background according to a session template.
