Could you tell me first what version of MultiCharts you are using?

As far as I understand the chart displayed on the screenshot you sent us was plotting in real-time. And if you had closed it and opened again, the day session break would have been printed.
I tried to reproduce the situation and this session break was displayed but I created the chart from history data.
Could you send us your workspace so that we will be able to reproduce the problem?

I have had this bug since the earliest releases and is easy to reproduce and explain.

MC only print the session break at the close of the last bar of the session. So, if you close MC just before the end of the session and then open it shortly before the next session start, the session break is not drawn. This only happens for the last session. The break for all previous sessions are drawn ok.

Thanks for the information, Fanus.

Could you please specify the session start and end and when should we close and open MultiCharts again? And we'll certainly fix this bug if we manage to catch it.

Hi Kate

I don't think this really matter what session start and end time you use, as long as you close it before the end and open it just before the start of the next.

For me, I am using ES, ER2 and NQ symbols with session start set for 8:30 CST and session end for 15:15 CST. If I leave MC open all the way to 15:15, at the close of the last bar of 15:15, the session break is drawn. If I close MC at 15:00 for example and then open it again the next morning at 8:20, the chart is starting at 8:30 without drawing the session break.

MC does draw the session break for all previous days in this instance except for between the current and last one.

Regards
