    BarsSinceSession

    Hi,

    When trading forex, I noticed that the Bars.BarsSinceSession returns a value of 1 at the start of the new trading session (5pm EST) but also at 12:00 midnight.. Is there any way to solve this? I'm only interested in the 5pm EST point in time.

      I am using the Forex template with the following settings:


      It happens on all forex pairs.

      When I enter the following code within the OnBarUpdate() statement I get the results:

      Code:
      			if(Bars.FirstBarOfSession) { 
      				Print(Time[0].ToString());
      }

      7/1/2015 5:30:00 PM

      I know there is a non-tradeable period between 5pm and 5:30pm but I would think the session is marked at 5pm.

        Hello,

        Thanks for your reply.

        I used:

        Code:
        if(Bars.FirstBarOfSession && FirstTickOfBar) 
        { 
        Print(Time[0].ToString());
        }
        At first I too had a print at Midnight on some days. I then reloaded all historical data and that cleared up the issue. Please try reloading your historical data and testing again.
