Could this indicator Be Boxes of the sessions high and low? They could be shaded or colored? And a GMT offset switch? Thanks

Nick, I believe the shaded box variation is implemented in the older version of the sessions indi.

Hi, I have a strategy that runs one hour after the opening of London, but doing backtesting I realized that there is a period of time when this strategy is not working properly because it does not use the DST (Daylight saving time ), In fact I am pretty sure none of these indicators (Market Sessions.lua, Trading Session Hours Highlight and Trading Session Hours ) properly handle the DST of New York vs. the DST of Europe.
They could check it and tell me if I'm wrong.
Thank you so much

Is there an MT4 version of this indicator? Due to FXCM's shenanigans I have moved my account to Oanda and chosen to use their MT4 charting package.

I have done a search, but can't find anything. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

On the 5 min chart, sessions do not adjust to highlight session times.

Also, the times are referenced to what? E.g. in Sydney (-7) etc what is the reference point of your time scale to use -7 or any other time? The accepted method of time calculation should go from GMT (London time) and work from there, otherwise time should be based on Market open on Monday Sydney time.
