Has anyone figured out how to view (Or a workaround) a daily chart of the @ES showing just the regular trading hours?

Even when you turn off "Show extended data" - It still shows. I tried a 405 minute chart & that doesn't work either. If you set up a custom session time, it just defaults back to the CME when you enter the symbol.

I am using CQG - New from Tradestation (They had a special symbol @ES.D)

You can filter out overnight data on every other time frame.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it seems ridiculous I have to go to Think Or Swim to see this.

Thanks,

Donovan

I use 1425 min chart with show extended hours turned off it does the trick for me.
Thanks for the reply - I just tried that & while they look like daily bars at first glance when I look at the open times each bar starts at a different time:

Some at 6:30 am, some at 7:05 am, etc. I do have extended hours turned off so it would seem that the day would start at 9:30 am (all my times are EST).

That is why I tried a 405 minute chart with extended hours turned off. In theory it should start when the CME opens and run for 405 minutes - But it does not.
Thanks for the tip - It was worth a try (y)

Any other ideas, or maybe the support guys/gals could let me know why a 405 minute bar with extended hours turned off does not start at 9:30 EST?

Thanks,

Donovan

You are correct sir!!

Thank you very much for the help - I knew there must be a hack of some sort, and it appears that you've found it 🤓

Much appreciated - Thanks a lot for your help/time.

Hey there,

I tried to apply this workaround but it didn't seem to work for me.
My chart looks like this after switching to the timeframe and turning off the extended data:
691



Any ideas?

It seemed to be working a while ago (Kind of) - But it does not anymore for me. Even when it did it was kind of a screwy work around.

I ended up making a new workspace with a Tradestation feed just for this purpose.

They told me it was the way CQG & Rithmic sends out the data and there is nothing that can be done about it.

Seems crazy that with all this technology it is a "big deal" to just get a RTH only daily chart?!

If you can get your hands on a Simulation Tradestation account (Or ever TDA I think would work) you can just add them as a data feed and do it that way.

Not the best solution, but the only way I have figured out :rolleyes:

Damn I see. I actually set up a PaperTrading Account with TDA for this reason today and work with two applications at the same time.

Thanks for letting me know Donovan.

I'm confident that a lot of people would be happy to see this feature somehow implemented in the future.
Maybe @MotiveWave_Jason will suprise us with a software update someday.

I use OHLC study set to RTH only on one of my charts - it does the job for me. After all I just need a reference of the high/low/close RTH. Ain't critical though. The modern market is 24H action and a lot of good setups happen in the ON session. In fact, I found the RTH sessions the most annoying :)

Cheers.
