CME is open on Thanksgiving during the night session and the first 2 hours of the regular session. For index futures it pauses from 11:30 EST until 6:00 PM EST. All trades executed on Thanksgiving are for trade date November 26, which means

- that Thanksgiving is not a separate session
- that trades executed on Nov 25 and Nov 26 will have the same settlement date

This also affects floor pivots:

- Friday's pivots are calculated from Wednesday's high, low and settlement
- Monday's pivots are calculated from high, low and settlement fo the two-day session Nov 25 + Nov 26

I think your indicator takes care of these specificities, is it not ?

It should, would appreciate if you can verify that it works as expected! All indicators that use sessions and have fields to enter the holiday dates should theoretically cope with it, but I would be not be astonished, if somebody is able to to find a little bug. There are only few occasions per year to test this.
