I'm assuming that the "trading time" indicator is the one that makes the screen green sometimes and black sometimes but I imported the one on the 1st page of this thread and it doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe "trading time" isn't the indicator that I'm looking for. It doesn't have any time slot options in the indicator input screen.


Please let me know.
Thanks,
Todd

Hey Todd,

If you have managed to import the trading time indicator then go into the code and adjust the times from there

You got them all. I'm convinced more than ever. I got to pay more attention, I missed out on 2 winners despite the audio alerts.

I'm also observing (after hours) the signals on the Euro to see if it works as well as crude and what the target should be.

Yes......check out how Lolu is doing on the overlap time between Europe/U.S. sessions with the Euro.

Not too schabby.

Jeff,

I went into the code and changed the time... Based on what I understand from the times, I changed them to what they would be for EST using military time. When I went back to my chart and started to scroll, my chart turned white with a big red X.

Is anyone using this indicator in NT7? Or is there another one?
Was I right to use the military time?

See screenshot
TechSmith | Screencast.com, online video sharing, 2010-06-24_1217

Even before I messed with the times in the code, I had put it on the chart and I only saw black background. I would think that I would have seen some green and some black (maybe shifted) if it was working correctly.

Thanks,
Todd

OK, you got me. The kids are out of school now so I can have my mornings back. Going to be trading these setups starting next week just in the AM session though.
