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."

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
