Forex sessions...

one thing i have picked up in all of this is that no matter where you live, you need to have the time zone set to wherever the exchange resides in the session manager.. NT will do the rest of the conversion automagically on your charts..

With FOREX there is one problem indeed. For any template you have to select a time zone. For FOREX I would select EST, as the close of the FOREX market is at 5:00 PM EST, and the close is the most important landmark.

If you use EST for the template, then everything will be fine, except for 3 weeks per year, when the US already/still has summertime and Europe uses winter time. During those 3 weeks you would have to use a different template, which I call Halloween template (the US waits to switch to winter time, to avoid that sunset arrives too early on Halloween, which could rise the crime rate).

Otherwise you decide on your FOREX trading times, create that template and then use it. No problem. A sample template is attached. Below the modifications needed for the 2 weeks in March and the Halloween week.

Yes all indicators will work with those sessions. You need to select the appropriate settings for each indicator, depending on what you want to display.

Finally, the answer! You cannot imagine the amount of different templates I have created that don't work, and the frustation.

Thanks again.....Calvin

Harry.....I noticed in your Session Template tool you are able to use 24hr timeframe time....0900, 1700, etc. Mine uses the 12hr....am/pm format and I cannot find anywhere to change it in properties, preferences .... Is that a feature you coded yourself in NT7?

NinjaTrader cuts off all bars, when there is a session break. After the session break it starts with a new bar.

Your PC probably uses US settings. Americans like it complicated and use AM and PM. In Europe we can count further than 12 - with some difficulties we can make it up to 24 - so we do not need those AM and PM settings.

It is a probably a Windows option. You can try to go to your Windows control panel, then select "Regional and Language Settings", further select English (United States) and then press the "Customize" button. This should allow you to choose your prefered format for the time.

If you are lucky you will convince your PC to do what you want to do, if you are unlucky it may explode.

im not sure if this is going to work for me... here are the two charts next to each other one on the left showing my Custom ETH chart that i made earlier in the post and the right showing the regular ETH settings. the regular ETH settings chart shows the previous days OHLC correctly and the custom one doesnt(as we have discussed above). if im not able to get it to pull correct values, is there a way to color the sessions the way i need w/o working from the session templates? maybe just user inputted times?

Could you please stop to hide the indicator settings. If you always hide them, I have no clue, what the indicators are doing.

Also could you please post a screenshot of your session template.
