I use Ninjatrader and I was wondering if I choose ES 12-12 what session template do you pick for data series???

If I pick CME US Index futures RTH things look slightly different than when I pick "instrument settings" as a session template.

POC and VPOC are at different prices. PLease, help.

Your question is not easy to answer as it depends upon how you want to trade.

Do you want to see the difference between the close and the open as a gap on the cart?

Me, I like seeing everything that has occured.

I use personally use the default 24-7

The fun begins, the truth is use what the majority uses so you can see levels to do business at. As you noted all your pivots,MP etc will change these levels. Go in the past and change these settings till you find one that affected price. Its not a easy question to answer. I went thru all this before, over and over, various setups till i found what spoke to me.

Good Luck

Fyi I use all 3-eth rth and 24/7 all with different charts and setups, dont worry about custom templates majority doesnt use them IMO

the one template I would never use is the 24/7. I don't know a single market that opens and closes at midnight.

using rth or eth is a personal choice imo.

I use a custom template, eth and rth combined like this:
