Again GREAT thanks to tmc. and I have just uploaded the corrected version

@FullPrice Indy V02:  25 May 2016, 03:48


Thanks! Very useful! Then change the line so: [Indicator(IsOverlay = true, AutoRescale = false, TimeZone = TimeZones.UTC, AccessRights = AccessRights.None)]

A note: the indicator interferes with the chart zoom, that wants to keep the full price line within the visible graph But this is a "static" indicator I mean: I put it in all my templates, so It immediately remember me where the full prices are Then if the full prices are within my "trading range" I keep the indicator active as a constant warning, otherwise if the full prices are long away, I remove the indicator because it becomes unuseful

A very valuable job, thank you!

Thanks, a very good job! For those who have trouble seeing the Renko, I noticed that it works perfectly if I use any timeframe BUT DIFFERENT FROM M1

Since there already the Account.FreeMargin, it would be very useful also a Symbol.MarginRequired, exactly as in the top drop down box in the chart

Thanks, Marco

We were advised by Pepperstone that USD has just changed the Daylight Saving Time... so now (...very unusual...) NYCT = UTC + 3

So, to work in NYCT charts, you must change the tiny "current time" in the left bottom corner of your cTrader to UTC + 3

This night i made the check and I confirm, now to work in NYCT you must set the tiny "current time" in the right bottom of your cTrader to UTC + 3

The check it's the simplest you can imagine: if your Broker is NYCT now the midnight of your charts must be at UTC + 3

To be honest, I'm a bit rusty because it was many years ago, so now I simply trust my broker

Years ago, as all of us, I studied around, I joined forum, video courses, webminars and so on, then I decided that my broker had to respect two points

  1. ECN
  2. NYCT

Then I looked around, I made all my comparisons and I decided for Pepperstone, and I am still very happy of my choose

NYCT isn't a simple calculation but it's the broker that declare it's ECN + NYCT and then it's regularly checked and certified by different institution, and Pepperstone is certified ECN + NYCT

For many years I worked with Pepperstone metatrader, before discovering the much more professional and undoubtedly superior cTrader + cAlgo

Well, the Pepperstone metatrder is automatically set to UTC + 2 for 10 months a years, and to UTC + 1 in the 2 months of transition to the daylight saving time, when Europe changes it 1 month before USA, and you can't change it

Besides Pepperstone send us a mail to advise to change the setting of our charts to UTC + 2 and UTC + 1 when it's the time, if we use different platforms than it's metatrader

So no doubt: NYCT = UTC + 2 (and UTC + 1 in the 2 months of transition to daylight saving time) !

I dusted a bit my mind, and here you'll find all you need!

I understand your doubts, indeed in my first post I told there are many different theories

You can take a look at this

http://www.forexcfdsignals.com/#!new-york-close-forex-brokers/c24ie

I'm with Pepperstone, that is OFFICIALLY DECLARED NYCT, and it uses only UTC + 2 Charts

In this way the midnight of the chart must match the Wall Street closing!

You can easily check it yourself:

  • in cTrader set the little bottom "current time" option to UTC + 2 and when in your chart it's midnight, you'll see on the bottom left that the New York session disappears

burton.g said:

Pivot point levels were developed by Floor traders and used to give the current trading day's price "context" against yesterdays price range.
The formula is readily available in most platforms.

The pivot formula takes the range of a session from open to close.

Your pivot point settings should reflect the individual open and close times of each instrument you use them on. So the current sessions pivot levels are derived from the previous session.

You are right. Since forex is 24/24 the closing of New York is an optimum reference point

@Pivot Point Day Shift 11?:  08 Mar 2016, 03:25


Hello, yes you are right (but keep present that there are also other theories)

I use Pivot shifted to New York Closed Time

I solved in this way

  1. Put the indicator shift to ZERO
  2. In the very little "Current Time" option in the right bottom angle of cTrader, set UTC + 2
  3. In this way you are synchronized with the NYCT

...I add a bit of explanation... It isn't a my idea, I simply trust my broker

In fact I'm with Pepperstone that is a New York Close Time Broker

When I used their metatrader, the charts time was blocked at GMT + 2 for 10 months a year, and at GMT + 1 the two month of Daylight Saving Time transition

So when I passed to infinitely superior cTrader/cAlgo, I set the same UTC + 2 to keep the broker NYCT

I hope this may be useful!

I remind now a simply test you can do

Trading in NYCT means that it doesn't matter in which corner of world you live, but the midnight of your chart MUST MATCH the Wall Street/New York session closing

In practice they are not your indicators that must shift, but they are your charts that must be synchronized with the Wall Street session

So open the cTrader and set to UTC + 2 in the very little "current time" option in the bottom right corner, and you'll see that the midnight of your charts will match the Wall Street closing

Furthermore in this way you have only to set the shift of your daily indicators to ZERO, launch them on the UTC + 2 chart, and they are already in NYCT

Excuse the long speech, but I use automatically the NYCT since a long time charts and I was a bit rusty on the subject!

The fractals by Williams are a very useful reference in my trading, but I think they are often undervalued due their poor graphical representation, most of the time with a cue ball over or under the bar I read some articles by Barry and I simple coded his different graphical approach as BOXES As you know, nothing is sure in the forex, but this is a good chance for a sell when the price touch the upper border, with a take profit at least at mid line, and a buy from the lower border always till the mid line or even to the opposite border

You know the importance of the full prices as strong supports and/or resistences, i.e. 123.40000 or 123.000 and so on Unfortunately I always forget to check them, so sometime I find my orders blocked between a full price So I wrote this very simple but useful indicator that draws the full prices on my graphs... and I surely remember of them! I report also here my below comment:  [SOLVED THANKS TO tmc. AND I ALREADY UPLOADED THE CORRECT VERSION]   A note: the indicator interferes with the chart zoom, that wants to keep the full price line within the visible graph But this is a "static" indicator I mean: I put it in all my templates, so It immediately remembers me where the full prices are Then if the full prices are within my "trading range" I keep the indicator active as a constant warning, otherwise if the full prices are long away, I remove the indicator because it becomes useless A further note: as surely you already know, the removal of the indicator is very simple: right click on the chart select "Object List" press the X next to FullPrice Indy
