Hello Sameer,

Thank you for your post.

Session Templates are used to determine the Session Begin and End times of your chart, Market Analyzer and any window in NinjaTrader that calculates on historical data.

There is no specific Session Template for one region, but their are specific Session Templates for markets. If you would like to view all the data then use a Session Template of Default 24/7.

For information on Session Templates please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...on_manager.htm

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Many windows, for example the chart and the Market Analyzer, do require that a session template be set.

Every instrument has a default template. It will be used if you do not change it. There is no way to "not use any template at all."
