Custom Trading hours
Custom trading hours can be customized by right clicking anywhere on your opened chart and then select custom trading hours. As shown below highlighted in yellow and circled in red:
After you select custom trading hours the following settings page will popup as shown below:
Time zone used for data displayed in the platform
Time zones selected modify the time zones used to display data displayed in the application. The time zones chosen affects all data including times displayed in charts, order lists and tick by tick lists.
Trading hours determines the range of time for which data is displayed on intraday charts. If you want to display all available data, you should choose the first option. The second option can be used to restrict the amount of dat displayed in charts to include less time than is displayed by default. The times chosen in this section are always based on the market's default time zone (regardless of whether a custom time zone has been set for the market or not). The beginning time must always be earlier than the ending time (ex: from 06:00 to 21:00). This option only affects charts and not lists of instruments or tick by tick lists.
Weekend and Daily data
Weekend data: This option lets you display or hide weekend data (Saturday and Sunday). The official market time zone is used to determine what data is included in "weekend data".
Daily Data: When this box is checked, non-intraday candlesticks (open, high, low and close information for daily, weekly, monthly and yearly time frames) will be created based on intraday data only during the time period and time zones selected. Warning: using intraday quotes to create daily timeframe and higher candlesticks may reduce the amount of historical data that can be displayed.
Historical adjusted to dividends and rollovers
These options are used to adjust historical data after dividends for stocks or on rollover for continuous futures. Adjusted historical data is used in technical analysis to remove gaps that cause disturbance in trend lines and technical analysis indicators. Our data maintenance services constantly monitor the markets to detect these dividends and rollovers in order to make these adjustments to historical data.
