Quick question, hopefully... how can I remove the vertical shaded bars from a typical chart? I guess they indicate when the market is open but I find them very distracting.

Thank you,

I think you're looking for this option under the chart settings, Futures tab (or other product type). Just uncheck the Highlight Extended-Hours Trading session, and that should remove the shaded areas.

Thanks much, that did it! It was actually under the Equities tab but I tried both and that did it.

Thanks again,
