Support Request:

Hi,

I am attempting to backtest with futures trading starting at the open, i.e. 15:00:00 PST. However, no trades will sim unless I have a start time of 00:00:00.

I have tried adjusting the hours in the Chartbook Spreadsheet as well as the Chart Settings. I have tried reversing the Session Times. I have tried the Evening Session and reversing those times also. All of these attempt have been futile.

Ultimately I am attempting to have my trading hours be from 15:00:00 until 13:29:29.

Any advice would be much welcomed - thanks!!

From our perspective there is not a way for us to know why and is outside the scope of our support. Refer to:

Refer to the Session Times documentation about this:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SessionTimes.php

Basically you will use a Start Time of 15:00:00 and an End Time of 13:29:29.

Thank you for your help.

I have already gone through the Session Times directions with no results. More trial and error I guess. Thank you!
