Important differences between session templates

I have in the past wondered why my charts often varied dramatically and I'm still unclear myself as to what the best templates to use with some of my ETFs. i only trade them during standard trading time but I find that monitoring aftermarket and premarket activity to be helpful sometimes. Still does anyone know the best template to view SPY and other similar ETF's?

Look at the images below and see how different all of the indicators are. One is default 24/7 and the other is US Equities RTH.

Which session template is the most 'correct'?

"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
