The Trading Session Template Indicator is a powerful script that allows traders to customize their own trading session time range on a chart. With this indicator, you have the flexibility to define specific hours during which you prefer to focus your trading activities. The example chart showcases the New York session hours, but you can easily adapt it to any desired time range based on your trading strategy and preferences.
- Customizable Trading Session: The indicator empowers you to define your own trading session time range, tailored to your preferred market sessions or specific trading hours. This flexibility ensures that the indicator aligns with your unique trading strategy.
- Highlighted Trading Session: When a new trading day begins, the script automatically scans for the specified time range. Once the first candle within the range begins printing, the background color of the chart is highlighted, indicating the beginning of the trading session. When the last candle within the range is closed, the background color returns to normal.
- Focus on Specific Market Sessions: This indicator is particularly useful for traders who prefer to trade certain market sessions or specific hours during the day. By customizing the trading session, you can better align your trading activities with specific market conditions and trading opportunities.
- Candle Pattern Detection: The indicator includes the ability to detect candle patterns such as Doji, Engulfing, Hammer, and Shooting Star. You can activate the desired candle patterns and set up alerts for them. When an alert is triggered, indicating the formation of a specific candle pattern, you can further analyze the market and make informed trading decisions.
- ATR Filter: The indicator offers an ATR (Average True Range) filter to limit noise and focus on candle patterns with a size comparable to the ATR. You can set a minimum and maximum size for a candle compared to the ATR. This helps you filter out smaller or larger candles that may not align with your trading preferences.
- Stop Loss (SL) and Take Profit (TP) Levels: When a candle pattern is detected, based on the ATR, the indicator can display suggested Stop Loss and Take Profit levels. This feature provides additional guidance for risk management and potential profit targets.
- User-Friendly Interface: The indicator provides a user-friendly interface with adjustable settings and switches for customization. Tooltips are available to guide you through the various options and configurations, making it easy to adapt the indicator to your trading style and preferences.
