Here is my session template for TF. You have to create a custom session template. I don't think it comes with NT. However, you can modify some other template that's already in NT

Kulu

i think you may have some custom things going on there.. im just looking for ETH so my pivots and OHLC indicators work right..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You have to create this session template yourself. Look at the one that both Fat Tails and myself posted. It's very easy. C'mon now.

I hope this helps

All session templates use exchange time. That way you get the correct opening hours, even if you trade from Congo or Afghanistan.

@Silvester17 so when im trying to setup my DX here as compares to the TF settings, i need to set the end time at 5pm est and not 6pm est? but it starts at the same time on sunday at 6pm est? and they both open at 8pm est? thus the tf having 2hr between close and open and the DX having 3hrs?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

you got it right.

summary:

DX open 8:00 pm est, close 5:00 pm est

TF open 8:00 pm est, close 6:00 pm est

except on sundays, they both open at 6:00 pm est

Please use official trading times as per contract specifications.


https://www.theice.com/productguide/ProductDetails.shtml?specId=194


Trading times for DX are 8:00 PM to 5.00 PM EST. The Sunday session opens 2 hours earlier at 6:00 PM EST.


@Silvester17 was 1 minute faster to answer, but as there is no contradiction, I will leave this post.
