Dear Pipscaler,

Hollow candlesticks are coloured green if the previous bar's close is less than the current bar’s close (c1<c2, where c1 is the previous bar, c2 is the current bar).

According to the screenshot of your OHLC chart, the close of the bar from the previous session was less than the close of the first bar of the new session, therefore the respective first candle of the session on your hollow candlestick chart is coloured green.
