Was charting a few of the symbols from NASDAQ TotalView- I am Central time zone, which I have set in Global Settings. When I go into Chart settings for each of the symbols the Session Time is 09:30:00 instead of the central time zone of 08:30:00, all the settings are in Eastern.. Is there somewhere to get these settings on the Central Time Zone.

When you open a new chart for a NASDAQ symbol, is the Session Start Time set correctly?

No, still session start says 09:30:00, which is Eastern not Central.

For the chart for which you supplied the image, the Time Zone for the chart is set to the Global Time Zone. Therefore, you would need to check what your Global Time Zone is set to by selecting Global Settings >> Time Zone Settings. It looks like the global setting is for the Eastern Time Zone. If it is, then you would want to change it to Central.

charts are set to Global Time Zone, and Global Time Zone is set for Central, but still pulling up as Eastern.

The Session Time starting at 09:30 is simply because this is how the data is setup. All the NASDAQ TotalView symbols will have a default start session time of 09:30. If you want it to start at 08:30, then you will just need to update the session times in your Chart Settings.

Bummer was hoping Global Settings would do it, so you wouldn't have to do it for every NASDAQ symbol you want to chart.

Unfortunately - yes, you would have to change the Session Times for each chart.

Another option, that would work out better, would be to update the Symbol Settings and enter the Time Zone and Session Times for those symbols that you are going to chart. The Time Zone in the Symbol Settings is just defining the time for the Session Times that are entered. This way, when you open a new chart or change the symbol, the Session Times will be what you want. Refer to the information at the following link for editing symbol settings:

In newer versions of Sierra Chart, in the case of Intraday charts, as you change the time zone specifically in a chart , the Session Times automatically adjust by the change in offset from one time zone to the next.
