I read in the forum that you can define sessions for futures on Tradestation and Multichart, but not in MT5.
I have few questions to know if I understood the logic:
1) If I set in SQX under trading option the Limit Time Range, can I get the same results like if I use sessions?
2) If I do not set the sessions then SQX generate strategies that would also place orders outside of the sessions like 3:00 am. To avoid the broker’s overnight margin, I only need to exit at end of day (like 15:00)?
Ok for question nr 2 I already found the answer.. depending on the broker it can be “must exit trades by 3:55pm CST. You may enter after 5pm CST.”
So I am looking still an answer for question 1 … is it possible to replace sessions (that are not available on MT5) with Limit Time Range from SQX?
sessions and limiting time range are totally different worlds
by sessions you are cutting the data itself, so your indicators and everything will be computed only on the session, not on the whole data
