    Highlighting Globex session hours

    How do I highlight Globex session hours for Futures market?

    #2
    Hello absitrader,

    The 'Session template' setting determines at what times you receive/load data in the chart. If 'Session template' is set to <Use instrument settings>, please go to Control Center-->Tools-->Instrument Manager, highlight the instrument in question and click Edit. You can now view what session template is used for the instrument. By default, futures instruments use an ETH session template, which represents extended trading hours (Globex session).

    Subsequently, the Session Manager allows you to view the settings of the session template, but allows you to configure them to your liking or create brand new ones as well. More information regarding the Session Manager can be found at the following link.

    In combination with the session break line, it will reflect the Globex session in the chart. You can enable the session break line in the Data Series menu of the chart. Set 'Plot session break line' to True. You can configure the session break line using the 'Session break line' setting.

    You could also use our drawing tools to highlight sections in the chart. More information can be found at the following link.

    In addition, you could program a custom indicator that will highlight what you program and apply in it in the chart. Information to create custom indicators can be found at the link below.

      Thanks

      Thanks,
      I created new session time separating globex over night hours and regular floor hours and have session break lines appear on from 4:15 PM EDT till 9:30 AM EDT opening floor hour.
