Quote Manager - session time

Postby t-rader » 07 Mar 2011

Hi

I'm trading forex and want to know what session (time) template I should use.
24/7, "Use Exchange & ECN's Sessions", or other ? I'm thinking that if I choose anything but 24/7 my moving averages will be effected... is that right??? I only plan on trading Monday to Friday, even though the market never sleeps..

Regards
T

Since forex week starts Sunday afternoon, US eastern time, you should use 24/7.

What datafeed do you use? You should see the time they start transmitting data.
If you receive data from a broker maybe it's better for you to set a template with the broker's trading hours, since they will not transmit outside that period.
