    Regular trading hours

    Is there anyway to change all the instruments in the instrument manager to regular trading hours aside from doing it manually one by one. I see many of them are defaulted to 24/7.

    First of all none of the US equities or futures contracts that I have used so far is set to the standard template 24/7. But all of these use speficic templates. Please take into account that electronic and regular trading hours of index futures, interest rate futures, gold futures, gas futures are all different.

    The session templates in the instrument manager are preset to ETH for most of the futures contracts, and they are preset to RTH for most of the stocks.

    If you want to change the session templates for futures to RTH - this is not recommended because you exclude price information - you can do this one by one. There are maybe 50 liquid futures contracts, which can be traded intraday. Not a big deal to select appropriate session templates for them.

      No just stocks. I'm seeing several stocks in there set to 24/7, they were already sitting there as such.

        Zachj,

        Unfortunately you will need to go in and change each instrument one by one to change the session template.

          Ok. What about if I am backtesting and change the session template, will that change any instruments im testing to rth?

            Zachj,

            If you change the session template in back testing, it will only change that instrument's session template for only that back test.

              All stocks that I have checked were set to US Equities RTH. Which stocks do you talk about?

                It looks like it's ones that are missing a description and have not been fully setup yet for whatever reason. Likely specific to my instrument manager. I will just go thru and manually change them one by one.
