I have coded a version as well, which allows to display three different sessions per day. The three sessions can be entered in TST (Tokyo Standard Time - no DST schedule), GMT (European DST schedule) and EST (US DST schedule).

The indicator is primarily set up for use with FOREX instruments.

Would REALLY love a colored time region indicator with a setting for OPACITY!
I am tired of really bold colors (even the darkest gray 64,64, 64 is too bright) and would love to have one to vary the opacity.

Thanks....any out there?

Follow link in post #4, the indicator comes with a separate opacity setting for each time region.

Thanks FT, I've just installed it and tried to use it. It's not working properly, perhaps because I am overseas right now? Regardless of what I set it to, If I set a particular time zone to transparent it is still coming colored grey on my black charts and no matter the time i set ---even if it set all the times to 00:00 with opacity to 0 and (or any setting i've noticed) and set them all to transparent the entire chart is still colored grey. I only want it colored during OFF market hours (from US session) meaning my chart is transparent from 9:30am to 4pm (meaning 22:30 here my time until 05:00)

You are correct. The indicator had no option to select the color for the off-session times. I have added that option now including the opacity.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Colored Time Regions for NT8?


Haven't been able to find the NT8 version of Colored Time Regions: allows me to set time periods during the day when the chart will change color as an alert.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
