Hi 

 

In Prorealtime the answer to allot of your questions would depend on your timezone settings in Prorealtime. Right click on the chart and go to "custom trading hours" to see which settings you have in use.

 

A1: Pivot points would be calculated based on the candles visible on your chart, from that same trading hours section you can either include or exclude weekend data.

 

 A2: Trading hours are also set from the same section mentioned above.

 

B: You would set up your trading times from the custom trading hours section, each category has its own settings so for instance shares UK and shares US would have their own individual time zone settings. 

 

If you have any further questions then please let us know.

 

Thanks

Hi Anton

 

1. It seems ProRealTime added functionality to Pivot Point generation in the past but neither IG or ProRealTime announced it or made it obvious for an oldie like me.  Nuff said.  Anyhow........... the functionality added permits the times the HLC values are captured to be user defined.  Here's a screenshot in case you're not familiar..  http://my.jetscreenshot.com/16785/20171227-gnzf-56kb

 

2. Your previous comments about changing ProRealTime charts to particular timezone settings doesn't sound right for anybody trading or monitoring positions Indices, stocks, commodities and forex on a regular basis.

 

QUESTION - For the user defined time settings for Pivot Point calculation as shown in the screenshot above, please can you confirm that the values are captured off your book at the user defined times only Monday through Friday and not off your charts/database of your All Sessions markets on days other than Monday through Friday.

 

Many thanks
