Support Request:

I have a dilemma which I cannot figure out, I trade RTY & NQ futures via CQG data feed both Globex and NYC open/close.

In Chart Settings / Session Times I can’t understand which is the setting that is more appropriate to select as one setting will place different candle formation than the other. The formation gives in one setting an idea to trade short and in the other to go long (ex. One has a breaking candle and the other doesn’t, etc)

Option 1: Start Time 09:30:00 to 16:14:59 - End Time 16:15:00 to 09:29:59
Evening Start 16:15:00 to 09:29:59 Use Evening Session (Checked)

Option 2: Start Time 00:00:00 to End Time 23:59:59 Use Evening Session (Unchecked)

Any advice please?

Thank You

Evening Start 16:15:00 to 09:29:59 Use Evening Session (Checked)
