Visualizing multiple sessions in NT8

Hi everyone,

Some time ago, I created a multi-session template In NT7 which allowed me to easily visualize the Asian, Euro, and RTH sessions separately. This was useful but still came with some key limitations. Notably, I have different indicators I would like to apply during certain sessions but not others. For example, I would like to auto-draw a line for the Opening price during RTH but not during other sessions.

I was wondering if anyone has any guidance or tips on approach, tools, etc to help me achieve this.

Thanks in advance!

hi there biegea

When you say a line do you mean a vertical line?

Hey xplorer,

Let me try to clarify.

When I said "auto-draw a line for the Opening price," in that example, I'm talking about a simple horizontal line. For other indicators (such as a session Opening Range), I might be talking about two lines (high and low) and/or a shaded zone between, or whatever is appropriate for a given indicator. I have indicators that do these things; but they are not smart enough to let me specify which sessions they do or not plot in or pay attention to.

For the session visualization itself, using the NT session template approach in the past, I get simple vertical lines that divide each session. That is a sufficient baseline; different background colors for different sessions might be nice but not critical.

I hope this clarifies what you were looking to understand about my scenario.

Thanks!
biegea

you could use a different background colour for visualtion for the start. they have an indicator in the download section who does it. just switching to NT8 myself and worked like a charm. hope that helps at least partly
