Custom Session Editor Dialog Box

Click the Custom Session option on the Time axis context menu to control the hours you view when using X_STUDY to research a product. By default, the Time axis is set to Exchange Sessions which is the default times established by the exchange and covers all hours the instrument is open for trading. Alternatively, you can choose Primary Sessions, which is the product's most active and liquid times.

If neither of these options is right for you, you can create a custom session using the Custom Session Editor.
