Significant forex trading sessions are used by default, but the users are free to choose the opening and closing time of their choices.

Using ranges can indicate which sessions returned the most volatile price movements.

Trendlines can be useful to estimate the underlying trend of a specific session, but they can also offer a quick way to see which session started a trend reversal.

The session Mean highlights the equilibrium level within a session, extrapolating these levels can provide potential support and resistances levels of interest.

Finally, users can use the sessions VWAP's for real time applications, using them as trailing supports and resistances.

Using The Advanced Dashboard

The advanced dashboard returns useful information regarding the user set sessions. Each dashboard elements are described below:

  • Status: Highlights whether the user set session is active (open) of inactive (closed).
  • Trend: Shows correlation coefficient between the session prices and a linear sequence of values. Values above 0 indicates an up-trending session, while values under 0 indicates a down-trending session. Values closer to (1, -1) indicates a more trending session.
  • Volume: Shows accumulated volume within the session
  • σ (Standard Deviation): Shows standard deviation of the session, while this value is not bounded it can be useful to compare it with the other ones to see which session was the most volatile.

Note that when a session becomes inactive the value on the dashboard will hold until the specific session becomes active again.
